Ganguly has been at the forefront of change in Indian cricket
Sourav Ganguly is one of the key figures in the Indian cricket and has left his mark. Ever since his test debut in 1996, Ganguly has grown leaps and bounds. After taking over as captain in 2000s post match fixing scandal, Ganguly changed the face of Indian cricket.
He brought the charisma back to the game which was tarnished due to the scandals that unfolded. He led India to 2003 world cup final and was one of the highest run scorers for India in both tests and ODIs. Ganguly retired from international cricket in 2008.
After few years, Sourav Ganguly proved himself to be an efficient administrator after playing various roles in Bengal Cricket Association. In late 2019, he was elected as the President of the Board of Control for Cricket in India. He did a commendable job as the chief of BCCI by conducting an efficient IPL 2020 in UAE.
Hope he is back to full health in no time and we all wish him quick recovery.
