Former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly is all set to launch his book titled ‘A Century is Not Enough’. The book is expected to reveal some of the dressing room secrets. Among the lot, the fans and the cricket pundits would be eager to read the chapter that describes the former Indian coach Greg Chappell. Greg Chappell and Ganguly share a very infamous history.

The two had a very awkward fallout that saw Sourav Ganguly bow out of the national side. Also, at the same time, team India went through a troubled time when they had a group round exit in the ICC World Cup 2007. Recently, in a promotional video shot by the Juggernaut Publications, Sourav was asked 38 rapid fire questions. He was expected to answer in just one word or a phrase.


In the very same interaction, he was asked to use one word for Greg Chappell. Sourav, being direct and honest in his answer, quipped with the word ‘Stupid’. Certainly, the former Indian captain has a strong disliking for the former coach.

‘Bat like Sachin’

Some of the other interesting questions also revolved around cricket. He was asked if there was one talent that he could have, then what would it be. Ganguly chirped in with the answer, “Bat like Sachin Tendulkar“. Sachin and Sourav are known to be very good friends ever since their playing days.

When asked if football would ever take over cricket in India, Sourav Ganguly remarked that it is very difficult. Furthermore, he revealed that his favorite actor is Amitabh Bachchan and he wishes to play a role in KBC as well. Sourav Ganguly also noted that the women’s cricket must be looked after.

‘Will you let your daughter date a cricketer’

Another interesting question beckoned Sourav. He was asked if he would let his daughter, who Sourav calls as his most valuable possession, date a cricketer. Sourav took some time to think and asked for some more time to give the answer. When the question was asked again, Sourav answered that he would.
