Former India captain and current BCCI president Sourav Ganguly celebrated his 49th birthday on Thursday as wishes poured in from the cricket fraternity and fans. From Virender Sehwag to Dinesh Karthik, the ICC and cricket bodies, social media is flooded with outpouring love and photos of ‘Dada’ with #HappyBirthdayDada trending on Twitter.
Ganguly is regarded as India’s game-changer in International cricket during the 2000s. The Bengal Tiger holds a massive fan base, much like his successor MS Dhoni, who celebrated his 40th birthday the previous day. Here are some of the top wishes from the cricket fraternity:
🔸 Third-fastest to 10,000 ODI runs
🏏 Highest individual score for India at the Men’s @cricketworldcup – 183
🌟 Captained India to 11 wins in 28 overseas Tests
