So, after a bunch of interim candidates, mama is replaced by dada.
Sourav Ganguly had a long and illustrious character as a captain and an opening batsman for India. He made his ODI debut on January 11, 1992. In that match, he could score just three runs, but he bounced back in the later matches to make an everlasting impact. He even led the team to the finals of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2003.
We wish Sourav Ganguly all the best for his new role and hope that he can take Indian cricket to greater heights in the coming future.
