We should have gr8 respect for this man who changed the course of Indian cricket during his term. He is a marvelous player with exceptional skills. Nobody can forget the way he goes down to hit 6s. Every One Should pay tribute to him. The marvellous person is the ONE Saurav Ganguly.

Some felt he couldn't play the bouncer, others swore that he was God on the off-side; some laughed at his lack of athleticism, others took immense pride in his ability to galvanise a side. Sourav Ganguly's ability to polarise opinion led to one of the most fascinating dramas in Indian cricket. Yet, nobody can dispute that he was India's most successful Test captain - forging a winning unit from a bunch of talented, but directionless, individuals - and nobody can argue about him being one of the greatest one-day batsmen of all time.
