Sourav Ganguly, former India captain and current chairman of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), reached the Lord’s Cricket Ground to watch the second Test of a five-match series between India and England. The stadium has many beautiful memories of Ganguly’s cricket career. It was on this ground that he made his international debut, with his captaincy on the field, where India defeated the hosts in the final of the NatWest series. Ganguly took off his shirt and blew it in the air to celebrate the victory of Team India sitting on the balcony of the Lord’s. Ganguly’s presence brought back all those memories for cricket fans.
Ganguly, who came to watch the match at Lord’s, shared the experience on social media. Sharing some selected pictures of the Lord’s ground, he said: ‘He first came here in 1996 as a player and then as a captain. Enjoyed playing at the Lord’s today. India was in good condition then and still is today. It’s a great cricket game.
