Former Indian captain, Sourav Ganguly is undoubtedly one of the most influential cricketers in Indian cricket history. The Indian cricket is usually referred as; before Ganguly and after Ganguly. After the match-fixing scandal saw a great legend exiting the game, there was a mammoth challenge in front of the team. Though Sachin took up the captaincy, it was just matter of time before he handed over the reins.
In such a situation, it was Sourav Ganguly, who stepped up and took the responsibility. He became the Indian captain. His injected the spirit of winning. Ganguly became India’s first captain to give Australia a taste of their own medicine.
Sourav Ganguly had a close association with former Australian player, Greg Chapel. This made Greg the Indian coach. But the same coach was responsible for ousting Ganguly out of captaincy, and later the team. The spat between Ganguly and Greg Chapel became public after Ganguly addressed them in a press-meet during India’s tour to Zimbabwe.
From there, what we saw is the collapse of one of the cricket’s great. Though Ganguly managed to come back into the ODI team for 2007 world cup, he was not able to find his lost glory. Eventually, he chose to quit the International Cricket circuit in 2008.
