Sourav Ganguly Quotes

Kolkata Knight Riders Cricket player, Former Indian Cricket Captain


Sourav Chandidas Ganguly is a former Indian cricketer, and captain of the Indian national team. Born into an affluent family, Ganguly was introduced into the world of cricket by his elder brother Snehasish. He started his career by playing in state and school teams. There his playmanship was appreciated, he was only mildly successful and was condemned as being arrogant. Currently, he is the 5th highest run scorer in ODIs and was the 5th person in history to cross the 10,000 run landmark and only the 2nd Indian to cross that landmark after Sachin Tendulkar.

 We will be getting the services of Shane Bond from the second match. His raw pace can make a lot of difference. There is Ishant Sharma, who is a current India player. We have a seasoned campaigner in Ajit Agarkar. I wouldn't count Eklak Ahmid out as he is a left-arm pacer. Left-arm pacers have done quite well in the IPL. Eklak brings in the necessary variation. We have a good prospect in Varun Aaron, who can bowl at 90 miles per hour.

 Sehwag makes a major difference in the team. Rohit (Sharma) was opening the batting for the first time but he didn't do well in the last three matches. Sehwag, Sachin (Tendulkar), and Gambhir (Gautam) are key part of the Indian team in the shorter format of the game. With those two (Sehwag and Tendulkar) missing, obviously there was a bit of weakness
