Happy Birthday Sourav Ganguly: Sachin Tendulkar, VVS Laxman lead wishes as BCCI president turns 48


Wishes have been pouring in for present BCCI president and former India skipper Sourav Ganguly as he celebrates his 48th birthday on Wednesday, July 8.

Sourav Ganguly was the person who caused a change in the way in which Indian cricketers performed and the way in which choice processes occurred. Not solely did Ganguly expanded the scope of picks, his religion on gamers like Zaheer Khan, Yuvraj Singh, Virender Sehwag, Harbhajan Singh and naturally, MS Dhoni paved means for the Indian cricket workforce of right this moment.

One to by no means draw back from a problem, Sourav Ganguly moulded the workforce after taking on the reign of captaincy in early 2000 to change into arguably certainly one of India’s most profitable captain.

After 7213 runs in 113 Tests and 11,363 runs in ODIs from 311 matches, the legend of Sourav Ganguly will perpetually be cherished by followers from all around the nation.

As he turns 48 on Wednesday, his former teammates have been sending him birthday wishes.

Ganguly’s former teammate and one of many closest pals Sachin Tendulkar wrote: “Happy birthday Dadi! Hope our off-field partnership keeps going strong like our on-field ones. Wish you a blessed year ahead.”

“Many more happy returns of the day @SGanguly99. May you taste ever more success and receive more and more love. Have a great day and year ahead #HappyBirthdayDada,” wrote VVS Laxman.
