On July 8, 2024, former Indian cricket captain Sourav Ganguly celebrated his 52nd birthday. Fondly known as ‘Dada,’ Ganguly left an indelible mark on Indian cricket through his aggressive leadership. His partnership with Sachin Tendulkar at the top of the order remains iconic.

Sourav Ganguly’s legacy in Indian Cricket

Ganguly’s career began spectacularly with a remarkable debut century at Lord’s in 1996. His elegant stroke play and ability to dominate bowlers made him a mainstay in the Indian batting lineup. Under Ganguly’s captaincy, India achieved several memorable victories, including the famous Test series win against Australia in 2001, the NatWest series win in 2002, and the joint win of the Champions Trophy in 2002 with Sri Lanka. Ganguly also led India to the final of the 2003 World Cup and secured historic wins against Pakistan both in ODIs and Test matches.
