Happy Birthday Dada: Cricket Fraternity Come Together To Wish Sourav Ganguly A Happy Birthday

Sourav Ganguly Sachin Tendulkar

Former Indian skipper, Sourav Ganguly, turned 48 years old on Wednesday. On the special occasion, the cricket universe took to social media to express their heartfelt messages for the former Indian skipper. Although Sourav Ganguly could not lead team India to an ICC title or help them achieve the first position in the ICC Test Team Rankings, there can be no denying the fact that Ganguly brought a revolution in Indian captaincy.

Ganguly reposed faith in young players and they eventually went on to pay the price in the latter stages of their career. During his tenure, Sourav Ganguly has led Team India in 146 ODIs and 49 Tests, out of which the team emerged victorious on 76 and 21 occasions respectively.
