Sourav Ganguly is one of India's most successful captains, one who molded a new team when India was at its lowest ebb, reeling from the betting scandal. There is no doubt about his cricketing genius, right from the time he scored a Test century at Lord's to the time he led India to the 2003 World Cup final. But the world of cricket fans is divided into two one who adores him fiercely and the other despise him greatly. Ganguly is the man who allegedly refused to carry the drinks as a twelfth man, he constantly challenged authority. Former Indian coach Greg Chappell discarded him from the team during his stint as coach. Ganguly cared little for the convention: remember the bare-chested celebration at an Indian win?
Yet, in all the years of up and down through Indian cricket, no one questioned the man’s devotion to the game or his team. Racy and gripping, Sourav Ganguly: Cricket, Captaincy, and Controversy investigate the big events in Dada's interesting career. This book depicts the symbiotic relationship between the man and the cricketer. What was Ganguly thinking before a match? Why did he demand that the grass is trimmed just before the start of play at the Nagpur pitch? What was the Indian dressing room like? What was that Greg Chappell chapter all about?
