It has been 16 years since the Prince of Calcutta – Sourav Ganguly whirled his shirt overhead from the Lords’ balcony after his team’s emphatic win in the Natwest Series against England at the mecca of cricket. Present at a book launch in Kolkata besides the current Indian skipper Virat Kohli, Ganguly intimated his thoughts on that remarkable episode. The former skipper also weighed on his thoughts on how the current captain will celebrate if he lifts the ICC World Cup in England next year.
Team India skipper Virat kohli just made a pledge of running down the Oxford Street shirtless if the team wins 2019 World Cup.. Kohli made the amusing statement while defending Sourav Ganguly for taking his shirt off at the iconic Lords in London after winning the Natwest Trophy in 2002.
The Indian cricket team captain said that the former captain did no wrong by waving his shirt as that was an honest reaction after a game.
However, the 29-year-old Delhi cricketer opined, “I don’t think it will only be me because there will be a lot of people with six packs in the team. We will all be roaming shirtless. Hardik Pandya, there’s Bumrah as well… We have got a few candidates.”
Sourav Ganguly is oftenly asked about the iconic moment and he was asked about it again at the launch of his autobiography ‘A Century Is Not Enough’. In the event, Ganguly revealed interesting anecdotes from the memorable day.
