Bangla Hunt Desk: When Sourav Ganguly took charge of the Indian team, that is, when he became the captain, the Indian cricket team was going through a very difficult time. From there, Sourav created the Indian team with his own hands and established India as a strong team on the world stage.
As a captain, Dada made some decisions that changed Indian cricket.
Let’s take a look at:
Sending Virender Sehwag to the opening: –
Sourav changed the careers of Indian cricket and Virender Sehwag with a bold decision to send Virender Sehwag, who started his career as a middle order batsman, to the opening. Sehwag still tops the list of one of the best openers in the world.
Tendulkar in Kolkata Test: –
While Ajira was on his way to victory in the India-Australia Test in Kolkata, Sourav bowled with Sachin and hit the batting. Which is what Indian cricket fans remember now.
Keeping Rahul Dravid in ODI cricket: –
Dada kept wicket-keeping with Rahul Dravid to prevent Rahul Dravid from being dropped from the ODI format, so India also got an extra batsman, which helped India in many matches. This brave decision of my grandfather is still remembered by all Indians.
