Former Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly turned 45 on Saturday. On the joyous occasion wishes poured in for The ‘Prince of Kolkata’ from all parts of the country. Social media too buzzing with his birthday wishes. Ganguly has been one of the most successful captains for India and is known for his leadership qualities. The left-handed batsman made his first Test appearance for India in 1996 against England at Lord’s and scored a brilliant hundred in that match. From thereon there was no looking back.
While he stamped authority with his batting, Sourav also played a vital role in the resurgence of Indian cricket. Under him, India registered a berth in the final of Knockout tournament in 2000 and also went into the finals of the 2003 World Cup. Though they lost the final to New Zealand but his leadership skills impressed everybody. In 2002 Ganguly led his side to a Champions Trophy win. In 2003 edition of the ICC World Cup Ganguly and his side were runners-up. Meanwhile, here is a look at some of the wishes and what his colleagues and others have to say on his special day:
