Sourav Ganguly - The disputed legend!!!

In life everything is an act of chance. There are some things which you don't like and you have no reason for it. The fact may be that the prejudices associated with those are such strong and influential that it is difficult for you to have a first impression of it. However, you must have been annoyed with these lines.
There was a time when I was not attracted towards girls. It's not that I didn't like savouring pretty faces but I was a kid and my small childish world was not infested with the hormonal effects.
There was a phase in my life when I disliked my father watching cricket matches while my favourite cartoon shows were aired on a different channel.
There was a time when I wanted to be a medical practitioner or in other words a doctor.

After these many years my likes and dislikes have changed.

I love watching girls, I like talking to them and I like spending time with them. (Only exception if the girl is not pretty)
I'm a crazy cricket spectator who cannot afford to miss a cricket match in which India is playing.
I'm studying at IIT kharagpur and after more than 2 years I'll be an engineer and not a doctor.
Destiny is such a beautiful thing that it always plays the fair game.
I cannot describe each of the three changes which have affected me but one popular and the most searched of the hour is cricket, so here I'll talk about it.
1999, Cricket world cup
I was watching a cartoon episode probably of the Duck tales, when the transmission was interrupted for a while. I switched to many channels (not many as at that time India was not a victim of the idiot box fever).

I had no other option than to watch a cricket match of India against Sri Lanka. There I discovered my disputed legend, Sourav Ganguly.

That innings by ganguly made cricket my world and I was lost in ganguly's world. His off-side extravagance and spectacular sixes over the long-on and long-off looked more gorgeous than pretty faces of girls.
After the world cup India saw many changes, the team was not doing well and captaincy was juggling in the hands of Azharuddin, Sachin and Jadeja.
If this was not enough the match-fixing scandal added to the woes of Indian cricket as two of its great players were lost as its repercussions and Indian cricket was probably facing one of the greatest crisis in their history.
Sourav ganguly was made the Indian captain as Sachin himself rejected the role as his batting form was affected due to captaincy. When Ganguly was made the skipper everybody raised eyebrows over his appointment. However, I felt great as he was my hero.
Under his captaincy finding new talent was never difficult. We saw the birth of Zaheer, Sehwag, Dhoni, Yuvraj and the list goes. He always had the fire to fight till the last bowl.
Ganguly saw many criticisms. His captaincy was doubted at times but he went on to become the most successful Indian captain. His batting was always under the microscope and every Tom, Dick and Harry enunciated the end of his career. Here was Ganguly's way of giving them the answer, he fought hard and came back to the Indian team and it's not a matter of surprise that he batted like a maestro in the last series he played against Australia.
India might have forgotten, the last time when Australians came to India after winning 15 test matches in a row, he was the captain who led the Indian side which haulted Australia's dream run.
Dhoni might prove to be a great captain but he has to learn many things.
I would also like to pay respect to the other Indian fighter on the field who has also retired recently, Anil Kumble. This legendary spinner had no problems in engineering his action and style of bowling, his degree in engineering must have come to great use.

Coming back to sourav Ganguly, I'm reminded of the aggression in Indian team which has been due to the legacy which Ganguly will leave in Indian cricket.
Indian cricket has starting saying," You rub it in my face, I'll rub it back with extra chilli powder ".

Sachin, Gavaskar and Dravid are no doubt the batting legends of modern cricket but Sourav definitely is a legend in himself, he is a complete package and probably the disputed legend.
Ganguly has made Indian cricket team as "Team India".
Now that ganguly has achieved more than what an average cricketer dreams, his thoughts would be occupied by these words," It’s the journey which gives you happiness and not necessarily the destination"
BEST OF LUCK Sourav ganguly!!!!!
I wish you a bright future and enjoy your life with your family
