Let us salute our DADA!!

It was the end of Border-Gavaskar trophy. India deservedly won the series 2-0. They completely outplayed the Aussies in all departments and clinched the series much to the delight of all the fans.

It was a memorable series for several factors. This series was the last for Anil Kumble and Sourav Ganguly as they announced their retirement upon conclusion of the series. Plenty of emotions were seen and felt as both of them were really well established in the Indian cricket team

Sourav Ganguly also called as DADA by his faithfuls has been the most successful captain for the Indian Team. He has led the team to several tour victories as well as the home series. He was also one of the most stylish left-hand batsman the world has every witnessed after Brian Lara. His shots are simply a treat to watch as it will be filled with elegance and brilliance. Not many in the world play spinners well but he has been one exception. He did have problems towards the end of his carrier but he never allowed that to grow as he made a stunning comeback in the South Africa-India series performing consistently in that.

The decision of him retiring after this series was really shocking for all his faithfuls as he has been performing well and will be missed but maybe he wanted to end his carrier on a high note and thus it might have influenced him on making this decision. Nevertheless let us all salute this living legend for all his services given to the game of cricket.
