Finally, Dada is in… Crowd cheers…
This is pleasing… Sourav Ganguly made a dramatic entry back in IPL when he was signed by Pune Warriors for their IPL team in place of injured Ashish Nehra.
Dada has a huge fan following in India and many place him right next to Sachin Tendulkar for his contributions to Indian cricket. No one can forget the passion with which Sourav Ganguly played and how he rebuilt the Indian team to have an aggressive outlook. If not for the erstwhile coach Greg Chappell, Ganguly would have certainly played a lot more international cricket.
In the IPL scenario, Dada was with his home team, Kolkata Knight Riders, for the first three years, but he was left out by Shah Rukh Khan when bidding for this year’s IPL happened. No other franchise seemed interested in bidding for Ganguly. But Dada did say that he’d still be available for selection in the IPL 5.
Now, fortunately for his fans, Dada will be seen in IPL 4. Pune Warriors are having a dismal season, losing last 6 games. Their batting and balling looks pretty weak and and Ganguly’s inclusion will certainly bolster the team.
We wish DADA Good Luck for the rest of the season…!
