In his post, Ganguly remembered his journey with the Lord’s Cricket Stadium. “Came here as a player first in 1996… and then as captain… enjoyed the game at Lord’s today as an administrator… India was and is in a good position all the times… this game of cricket is majestic,” the former left-handed batsman wrote along with his Instagram post after enjoying the match.
