Former India captain and the current BCCI president Sourav Ganguly, who is credited for putting fire in the belly of Indian cricketers with his no-holds-barred approach, celebrates his 50th birthday today, July 8.
Fondly called ‘Maharaj’ and 'Dada' by most, Ganguly thrust young guns in the line of fire to turn them into braver cricketers, putting his complete trust in the youth. One of the most memorable instances of this was of course India's unforgettable 2002 Natwest Series triumph, in which India beat England by 2 wickets in the final at Lord's. Ganguly's subsequent shirt ripping act on the Lord's balcony is one cricket visual which will never be forgotten.
