India’s successful leader and defending BCCI president Sourav Ganguly turned 49 on Tuesday. The world of sports’ Dada ‘,’ Prince of Kolkata ‘,’ Bengal Tiger ‘,’ Guard of Offside “Ganguly of India, known as the Lord’s victory celebrations, known as the ‘Mecca of cricket’, will be called. Cricket fans will always remember that. Ganguly captained India in 146 ODIs, in which the team won 76. Also, under his captaincy, India have recorded 21 wins and 15 draws in 49 Tests. It was under Dada’s leadership that Australia won the series by winning 16 consecutive Tests in 2001, beating them 2-1.
India has faced defeat at the hands of England at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai next year. After this spectacular victory over India, England veteran Andrew Flintoff untied his shirt and started running. Seeing India’s defeat and such behavior under his leadership could not prevent Ganguly and decided to seek revenge for it.
‘Dada’ was chosen to avenge the Lord of the ground. In the 2002 NatWest Trophy final, India defeated England at the historic ground at Lord’s. As soon as Zaheer Khan and Mohammed Kaif completed the winning run at a stadium filled with spectators, Andrew Flintoff sat on the pitch in frustration. On the other hand, in the dressing room, Ganguly removed his T-shirt from the Lord’s balcony and began to blow it and Wankhede avenged his way to the Lord’s. The current BCCI president, in his book (A Century Is Not Enough), published in 2018, acknowledged that this is not the right way to celebrate victory at the Lord’s.
