“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.

The club arranged a small ceremony in the morning with his fans but Haldar has prepared a custom-made leather ball shape cake and waited for Ganguly to return from Mumbai. There were celebrations since morning in his locality where his fan clubs distributed sweets.
