Sourav Ganguly, the former Indian captain is part of commentary panel in Champions trophy. Sourav and his boys enjoyed more success in England when compared to other countries. Headingley test win, Natwest win are among the iconic wins under his captaincy. Dada who is known to have backed some players since the start of his reign always had showed faith in them. The same set had reunion on various platforms in ICC champions trophy 2017. They owe respect to their captain.
Harbhajan Singh after making debut in 1998, had made famous comeback for 2001 series where he took 32 wickets from just 3 matches and India fought back to win the series against Mighty Australia. He has taken 177 wickets from 37 test matches at an average of 26.84 under Dada’s captaincy. Certainly his best came under him. On the other day, Harbhajan was spotted having a chat with Dada. He even uploaded a snap on Instagram.
Virender Sehwag, the swashbuckling opener didn’t start his career as opener. His style of play suited more for opening slot and he credits Sourav for trusting him at that batting position. Sehwag scored 2519 runs from 31 tests at an average of 52.47. Like Harbhajan even he has uploaded a pic on instagram when the two were analyzing a game.
It is a well known fact that the stalwarts Ganguly and Dravid made debut in same test match and something similar had happened 4 years after that, One from Punjab (Yuvraj singh) and the other one from Bombay (Zaheer Khan) came into scene against Kenya in the big event of the year 2000. They went on to become match winners for India. In 2002 Natwest finals it was Yuvraj Singh- Kaif who stitched brilliant partnership to give India a victory from the jaws of defeat.
Yuvraj Singh recently played his 300th ODI in the semis against Bangladesh, He was felicitated with an award by Sourav before the match for his valuable contribution to Indian team. Having known Yuvraj since the start, Dada bestowed praise on Yuvi in one of his tweet. “@YUVSTRONG12 just so proud of everything u achieved ..300th game big milestone ..another World Cup to go before u get old” he said.
