2. When the Indian team decided to play a revenge prank on Ganguly- This is the best story in the history of Indian cricket. In the year 2000 when young Yuvraj Singh was about to make his debut in international cricket, A night before the match Ganguly came to Yuvraj and asked Yuvraj “Will You Open”. Yuvi was so tensed that he has to take sleeping pills a night before the match.
The next day Ganguly came to Yuvi and said that it was just a joke. For Ganguly, it was over there but Yuvi never forgot that joke and played a big prank on Ganguly five years later.
In 2005 at Kochi all teammates planned to make a fool of Ganguly. All the players arranged a printout copy of a fake interview of Ganguly in which it was written that Dada has made disapproving judgements on Indian players. Dada was shocked as he never gave such an interview. An upset ‘dada’ went to each and every player and pleaded that he never gave such an interview.
The situation became worse when the team manager read out all the lines but gentlemen Rahul Dravid could not see tears in captain’s eyes and he told the truth to Dada that it was just a prank. Dada after really understanding the situation picked up his bat and ran after each and every player. He also warned players not to play such a prank in future.
