A very challenging and aggressive cricketer from the state of Bengal in form of a Classy Batsman , good fielder , pretty handy bowler and all sporting spirit,
His aggressive brand of cricket has set a new trend of aggression that is prevalent among the youngsters, SEHWAG, KAIF, ZAHEER and YUVRAJ. This aggressive cricket has been subjected to useless and senseless criticisms by slobs ,such as BISHEN SINGH BEDI, RAVI SHASHTRI, NAVYOT SINGH SIDHU ( At Times). Bishen singh Bedi being the usual suspect saying something or the other using the few english words he possesses in his limited vocabulary.
Mild mannered at heart , good looking and pleasant appearance.
So as we know that Tendulkar to be the best batsmen in India or so for that matter , the whole world but Saurav Ganguly can easily be considered one of best left handed batsmen in the Whole globe.
Saurav Ganguly has emerged as one of the key components of both the one day and test sides for India. He is an aggressive left-handed middle order batsman who opens in One-Dayers and also bowls right-handed military medium pace. He had a disastrous start to his international career as a 19 year old, touring Australia in 1991-92 where both his ability and attitude was questioned. He was recalled for the 1996 tour of England. He answered in style to those who questioned his game playing and attitude by scoring centuries in his first two test matches as well as capturing vital wickets to bag the Man of the series award. Still he was considered fit for only test matches, his inability to play onside strokes being exploited by bowlers to slow down his scoring and was constantly criticized . He soon worked on the problem and since then has given India several dynamic starts while opening the innings. He became a household name in India after the Sahara Cup in Toronto where he won several matches for India vs Pakistan. Besides several superlative batting performance (including 75* in 75 balls), he exploited the conditions to return some excellent bowling figures (including 5-16). He also became the fourth all-rounder to score a century (130*) and take 4 wickets (4/22). Ganguly was brought in as an opener for the limited over games. He compiled some useful opening partnerships in the company of Sachin Tendulkar, including a world record stand of 252 vs. Sri Lanka. He put on a stand on 318 with Rahul Dravid against the same opposition , a record for any wicket, at Taunton in a preliminary match in the last World Cup . In the same tournament, Ganguly was in great touch with a highest individual score of 183 vs. Sri Lanka , a national record and a 97 vs. the South Africans. His innings of 138 against Zimbabwe in the LG Cup at Nairobi was the highest score of the whole tournament against instrumental in India beating Zimbabwe by a very big Margin adding another line to the Resume of this stylish & classy Left Hander Batsman. His performance both in the one day and test arena has tightlipped his hardened critics but still they find ways to bring him down. As expected these guys fail over and again.
