Ganguly, who represented India in over 400 international matches, is widely hailed as the modern-day godfather of Indian cricket. It was under his leadership that Indian cricket charted out a new niche for itself following the shambles of the 2000 match-fixing saga.

Not only did he helped India breach the overseas barrier when it came to Test cricket, but he also nurtured some of India’s greatest-ever cricketers like Virender Sehwag, Yuvraj Singh, Harbhajan Singh, Zaheer Khan, MS Dhoni.
