Happy Birthday, Sourav!

Ganguly turns 36 today. Wishing you many many more happy years, Sourav!

Our Dada!Our Dada!

I chose this picture because to me it almost speaks the entire story: his success and the not-so-memorable times. The godfather of the ‘lets-get-under-Aussie-skin’ campaign in cricket, to me, he will always be the aggressor who made us believe that we can beat the best.

Hope to see many more gutsy knocks from you, Dada!

    ODI cricket seems behind him but he is still striking it hot in Tests. Besides, he’s far better a player of spin than our X generation batters.

  2. Q says:

    I agree – the new India attitude being talked about came from Ganguly. He still has it in him to play ODIs Som.

  3. he can still play ODI…but million dollar question is can india afford his ‘Play’…

    @Som, undoubtedly a better player of spin than gen X.

    @Q, I’m with you on this one. He can still fit into the ODI scheme of things.

    @SP, are you talking about the “new-ball-playing” tactics of old?

    The man could certainly move a nation, couldn’t he? Belated birthday greetings Sourav.

    @soulberry, amazing isn’t it? 🙂

    Dada will soon be a dodo – extinct… his early memories will live on.

  10. vmminerva says:

    @Scorpy, true. Can’t forget his form in against Pak in Toronto and then later as Indian captain. That is quintessential Sourav for me.
