“We have been celebrating his birthday since he was made India captain. But this time we have a special wish. We want Behala Chowrasta metro to come up in his name.

“As it’s a Raiway project we will write to the ministry and approach (BJP MP) Babul Supriyo,” Ratan Haldar of Sourav Ganguly Fan Club said.
