#1 Sourav Ganguly
Who better than DADA to read about, for any cricket fan? Sourav Ganguly was arguably India’s best captain, who marshalled his troops impeccably and achieved the feat of bringing up India’s rankings from the 8th place to the 2nd place.
In a wavy career spanning from 1996 to 2008, Sourav Ganguly was at the centre of controversies with the then Indian coach Greg Chappell.
Despite being dropped from the team after Chappell’s entry as coach, Ganguly fought hard to regain his place in the team, which he eventually achieved in 2006. The only constant thing about Sourav Ganguly's career was that it had always been in transition and almost as unpredictable as the game of cricket itself is known to be.
Eventually, once he retired in 2008, people expected him to finally speak up about his turbulent times with Chappell. After the release of Sachin Tendulkar’s autobiography where the cricketer had slammed the coach, all eyes and ears were tuned to Ganguly, waiting for his reaction on the subject. The aggressive man that he always is, Ganguly proclaimed that he was just waiting for the right time to pen down a book on his life, and that his account of incidents would cause large tremors.
Yes, the whole cricket circle is waiting for the time when his thoughts touch ink and become tangible.
