Sourav Ganguly, the current President of Board for Control of Cricket in India (BCCI), has served the Indian cricket as a cricketer as well as skipper and there is no denying the fact that he is one of the most successful captains that India has ever had. Sourav Ganguly who is also referred to as Dada has played some really memorable innings and recently, he got a little nostalgic while remembering one of his innings.
Recently, he took to Instagram and shared a photo in which he is seen with his teammate Rahul Dravid. In that pic, Dada is celebrating his maiden test century which he scored on his debut at the Lord’s Cricket Ground, London, against England.
Sourav Ganguly shared the photo with caption, “Fantastic Memories”.
Here is the post:
In the test match, England put up a total of 344 runs on the board in the first innings. In reply, India took a lead of 185 runs with the help of Ganguly’s 131 runs for which he played 310 balls and Dravid’s 95 (267). The match ended up in a draw with Jack Russell winning the Player of the Match award.
Yuvraj Singh, the former Indian cricketer who started his international career under the captaincy of Sourav Ganguly, didn’t miss the chance to have some fun with his former skipper.
The photo shared by Dada had an official logo of a firm and Yuvraj asked Sourav Ganguly to remove the logo first before sharing the photo. At one fell swoop, Yuvi also reminded Ganguly that he is BCCI President now so he should be professional.
Here is what Yuvraj commented, “Dada logo to hata lo! You’re BCCI President now. Please be professional.”
Yuvraj was one of the best batsmen of short formats of the game and he was also a part of the team which won the T20I World Cup 2007. In the same tournament, he hit six sixes in the over of Stuart Broad during a match between India and England.
It’s good to see two former cricketers having fun on social media!
