Sourav Ganguly's two most memorable moments at Lord's

Sourav Ganguly achieved considerable success while playing at Lord's. Among the most is the century in his debut Test match. Ganguly amassed 131 runs off 301 deliveries and helped India take a first innings lead in the 1996 Lord's Test against England.

Six years later, Ganguly led the Indian cricket team in a tri-series involving England and Sri Lanka. India qualified for the summit clash and defeated hosts England at Lord's to win the title. After the historic win, Ganguly took his shirt off, waved it and roared in delight from the Lord's balcony.
