Former Indian skipper, Sourav Ganguly has been quite busy while performing his duties as the president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCI), but always makes sure to stay active on social media as he often been seen sharing pictures from his playing days or with his former teammates.
Recently, Ganguly took to Instagram on Thursday to post an image from his Test debut at Lord’s in 1996, captioned “fanatastic memories”. He had famously scored a century at the iconic ground on his Test debut. In the picture, he can be seen celebrating his century, with a young Rahul Dravid behind him in the background.
However, the picture which Ganguly uploaded consisted of a watermark and his former teammate Yuvraj Singh wasted no time in pointing it out and trolling him. His comment read: “Dada logo to hata lo! Your Bcci president now please be professional (sic)”.
The comment left users in splits. Legendary batsman Sachin Tendulkar also commented on Ganguly’s photo. He jokingly asked, “This reminds us of his great knock. Is there any other instance of Dada at Lords that one can think of?”
The question prompted answers that involved Yuvraj Singh as well, of course, as most fans commented in reference to the famous 2002 NatWest series final against England when Ganguly pulled off his shirt and waved in the air.
Chasing 325, Ganguly had scored a half-century to give India a solid start before the batting order saw a collapse of sorts. Yuvraj Singh and Mohammed Kaif then stitched together a brilliant partnership to rescue the team. India ended up winning the thriller, triggering passionate celebrations on the Lord’s balcony. Ganguly took off his jersey and swung it over his head in joy, creating an image that will forever be etched in cricketing history.
