A major turnaround came in world cricket when team India announced their domination by winning the Natwest Trophy in England back in the year 2002. The Ganguly-led India beat Nasser Hussain’s England in the final in a nail-biting encounter.
Now, Sourav Ganguly has chosen the biggest moment in Indian cricket for him so far and termed it as a joyful sight for him.
Sourav Ganguly Reveals His Biggest Day In Indian Cricket History
“For me the biggest day was when India won the World Cup in 2011. The great MS Dhoni… that shot, that six off the last ball will remain in Indian cricket history forever and what a moment it was,” Ganguly said in an online video lecture for Unacademy.
“I remember I was at the Wankhede Stadium that night and I came down from the commentary box to watch Dhoni and the team go around the ground. In 2003 the team which I was the captain lost the final to Australia so I was so happy to see Dhoni have the opportunity to win that trophy,” Sourav Ganguly further said.
Sourav Ganguly Opens Up On The Legacy He Left
“That team had seven or eight players who started their careers under me. The likes of (Virender) Sehwag, Dhoni himself, Yuvraj (Singh), Zaheer (Khan), Harbhajan Singh, Ashish Nehra. So I think that’s a legacy which I was extremely happy to leave behind as a captain,” Ganguly said.
“And that was my biggest legacy that I left a side which had the ability of winning at home and away from home,” Ganguly said.
