In cricket,sometimes a batsman is made to realise that the protective equipments are not only made to protect him from the bowler. There is an other side to it too. Ganguly came to realise this when Sachin hit a powerful straight drive which knocked down Ganguly on the ground. Ganguly was lucky that the ball didn’t hit him. His initial espression meant that he was really taken by surprise. Then they both had an exchange of smile.
