Happy Birthday Sourav Ganguly: the captain who changed the appearance of Indian cricket, known as 'Dada'

Sourav Ganguly helped the Indian team to new heights as a captain.

8th July, 2020

Happy Birthday Sourav Ganguly: The Indian team created history by winning the World Cup under the captaincy of Kapil Dev in the year 1983, but after that the Indian team did not look as aggressive on foreign soil. Many captains have changed in the meantime, but in fact the Indian team's Surat has changed under the captaincy of Sourav Ganguly. This legacy was carried forward by captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Ganguly is now the boss of BCCI.

Sourav Ganguly is celebrating his 48th birthday today as the captain who helped the Indian team reach new heights. Sourav Ganguly, famous in world cricket as Dada, had instilled that self-confidence in the players, whose lack had been seen for the last nearly two decades. Sachin Tendulkar, who was called the Lord of Cricket himself, had done the captaincy, but neither he himself got success nor the team had any great success.

The 90s had changed, a new century had arrived and the Indian team was appointed as Sourav Ganguly as captain. Mohammad Azharuddin, who captained the country for nearly a decade, also could not do the work that Sourav Ganguly did. No ICC events Sourav Ganguly was able to bring the country, but he led the team to the final of the 2003 World Cup. Apart from this, India also played the final of ICC Champions Trophy.

Speaking of captaincy figures, Sourav Ganguly captained the team in 49 Tests, of which India won 21 Tests. These were the most Test matches won by any Indian captain. This record was broken by MS Dhoni, while captain Virat Kohli has broken Dhoni's record. In ODI cricket, Ganguly captained 146 matches, in which 76 matches were won by India. It also included the NatWest Trophy win over foreign soil.

The job of a captain is to lead the team from the front. This work was well understood by Ganguly. This was the reason that he used to come to bowl himself without any fear on important occasions. As a batsman, he was called the God of the off-side, but even with medium pace bowling, he had the ability to send good batsmen to the pavilion. This is the reason that he has a record of taking 32 wickets in Test cricket and 100 wickets in ODI cricket.

Born in Kolkata and then known as Prince of Kolkata, the left-handed batsman Sourav Ganguly had a good time with Sachin Tendulkar. Both have the world record of most century partnership as an opener. However, he was later replaced by Virender Sehwag as an opener, but due to the team, he never questioned it and started playing at number 3 himself.

Sourav Ganguly, who played 113 Test matches for the country, has scored 7212 runs at an average of 42.18, including 16 centuries and 35 half-centuries, including a double century. Dada has also hit 900 fours and 57 sixes in a Test career. At the same time, he has scored 11363 runs in 311 ODIs at an average of over 40. Even today he is the third batsman in the world to complete 10,000 runs in the fewest matches. In ODIs, he has scored 22 centuries and 72 half-centuries.
