The BCCI President and former team India skipper Sourav Ganguly, who is known for his captaincy in the NatWest series at the Lords as well as other circuit tours, has a special connection with the Lord’s Cricket Ground in London.

Former Indian skipper on Tuesday evening arrived at Mitali Sangha community Durga Puja pandal where a replica of Lord’s Pavilion was set up adjacent to the pandal for Ganguly by the Puja Committee. He inaugurated this Lords-like puja pandal following flag hoisting from the pandal balcony.

Of course, no one forgot the Lord’s iconic winning moment where the former cricketer took off his shirt and waved it on the Lord’s balcony. Now, this iconic Lord’s moment is the theme of a puja pandal in Kolkata.

Durga Puja aka Durgotsava is a yearly celebration that honours the Hindu goddess Durga and commemorates her victory over Mahishasur.

Every year, the unique Puja pandals themes have been introduced in Kolkata to celebrate the festival. This time, a pandal named Garia’s Navo Durga Puja pandal has been decorated on the theme of the historic Lord’s balcony, where Sourav Ganguly took off his shirt and waved it to celebrate India’s win in the NatWest tri-series final in 2002.

Lord’s is a venue where Sourav Ganguly witnessed arguably the best moment in his captaincy as India successfully chased down 326 runs against England Natwest tri-series 2002.

After winning the Natwest Trophy, Ganguly not only took off his T-shirt but also waved it for a long time from the Lord’s balcony.

Batting first in Natwest tri-series final, Nasser Hussain led England had made the most of the opportunities as centuries from opener Marcus Trescothick (109) and Hussain (115) powered them to a mammoth score of 325/5.

However, the Men in Blue were in no mood to go down without a fight as Ganguly (60) and Virender Sehwag (45) laid a solid foundation with a 106-run opening stand.

A defeat was looking closer after 146/5 in the 24th over of the game but it was 221 runs sixth-wicket partnership between Yuvraj Singh (69) and Mohammad Kaif (87*) that led them to a historic win at Lords.

Rohit Sharma should quit IPL in order to win World Cup, says his childhood coach Dinesh Lad

Team India captain Rohit Sharma, who is currently rested for the India vs New Zealand ODI and T20 series is under lot of scrutiny after the episode loss at the T20 World Cup 2022. Since then his captaincy has also been questioned by many veterans. Amidst all this, another shocking statement has come to the fore on Rohit Sharma.

Keeping the ODI World Cup 2023 in mind, Sharma’s childhood coach Dinesh Lada has advised Rohit not to play IPL. He believes that if the Indian team has to win the ODI World Cup 2023, then Rohit will have to distance himself from the Indian Premiere League and focus on the bilateral and ICC tournament.

For the unversed, Team India was out of the T20 World Cup 2022 after losing the semi-final match against England. Dinesh Lad said that Team India has not been stable in the last 7-8 months. And if they are preparing for the World Cup, then the team has to be united.

Lad further added that in the last seven months, anyone is coming to open, then someone is coming to bowl, hence, the team does not look stable at all. “I don’t think workload management is the reason. Everyone around the world is playing cricket. If this is the case then don’t play in IPL if you want to win the World Cup,” said Dinesh Lad.

Rohit Sharma’s childhood coach believes that if a cricketer plays for India or for the state then only his name is considered for IPL and then their game only helps in the salary cap in IPL.

On the sport front, Rohit Sharma has not had a good run in the T20 World Cup 2022. The Indian skipper scored only 116 runs in 6 innings. He scored only 1 half-century during this period at an average of 19.33. Since then Rohit Sharma’s captaincy is also under question.
