Undisputedly India's most successful captain ever, Sourav Ganguly has seen many ups and downs in his international career. The ‘Prince of Kolkata' will be always best remembered for his tremendous comeback to international cricket after being axed from captaincy and the squad. He is one of India's most successful ODI players. During his captaincy stint, he forged a winning unit from a bunch of talented individuals which took India to the 2003 World Cup finals.

Many felt he could not play the bouncer while there were others who felt that he was the God of the off-side. Ganguly's fitness was another reason why he was always under fire. Barring all the stated reasons, it cannot be denied that he will be one of the greatest players of one-day cricket. He can hammer the seamers as effortlessly as he plays the spinners.

Popularly known as ‘Dada', Ganguly can be rightly counted as one of the greats of Indian cricket.
