What is the first thing that comes to your mind when we say Sourav Ganguly? Dada? Yes. The waving of his shirt at Lord’s Cricket Ground? Yes. Behala? Yes. The altercation with ex Indian team coach Greg Chappell? Yes. India’s best captain? Yes. But over and above, it’s Sourav’s attitude that makes him so popular. He’s never afraid to take things head on. And his sense of sarcasm and wit. All his interviews, commentary and even social media handles are testimony to that. But nowhere is his sense of humour more evident than on the popular Bangla TV show Dadagiri Unlimited.
There’s a reason why Sourav is still the most popular captain. He always bats for his team. So recently, when legendary ex-Indian cricketer Rahul Dravid got a ‘Conflict of Interest’ notice from BCCI, Sourav didn’t hesitate to tweet in support of Jammy. He wrote: “New fashion in indian cricket…..conflict of interest….Best way to remain in news…god help Indian cricket……Dravid Gets Conflict of Interest Notice from BCCI Ethics Officer”.
