Sourav Ganguly was undoubtedly one of the most successful Indian skippers. Be it his aggressive leadership approach or batting skills, the left-hander achieved respect and fame from every part of the globe. The current BCCI president reflected back on many events of his illustrious career, including the 2003 World Cup final defeat against Australia.

The Men in Blue paved their way into the final of the showpiece event by defeating every team in their way. However, the Ganguly-led side fell short of the finishing line after Australia clinched the coveted trophy by winning the final of the tournament. Ganguly, in a candid conversation with India’s Test opener Mayank Agarwal, reminisced the memories and answered a few fan questions.

Meanwhile, on the auspicious day of ‘Guru Purnima’, a plethora of cricketers paid tribute to their coaches and mentors. The coach of a player plays a vital role in his journey to becoming an international player. Irfan Pathan, Rishabh Pant, and Unmukt Chand also paid tribute to their coaches and mentors on the occasion.
