The former India skipper Sourav Ganguly took to Twitter to recall the best moments of his life which was indeed the Test debut for team India at the Lord’s cricket ground. The President of Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) shared a collage of photos from his century at the Mecca of cricket from his first game.
While Ganguly’s fans and followers felt all nostalgic after seeing the post, former England skipper Nasser Hussain tried to pull the leg of the iconic cricketer. Nasser asked Ganguly about his bowling. Hussain tweeted, “No pictures of you bowling that week”, alongside a wink emoji.
Well, Ganguly replied to him in his own style that sent Nasser Hussain in splits. Ganguly responded, “I always protect my dear friends @nassercricket.”
Nasser Hussain was in splits after the BCCI president’s amusing reply and posted multiple laughing emojis.
The banter between the two former skippers continued as Sourav Ganguly later posted a picture on Twitter with Nasser Hussain where both captains can be seen posing with the Natwest Trophy. Then Ganguly asked Hussain regarding the whereabouts of the photograph.
Ganguly captioned the picture, “Hi Nass .. when was this picture taken .. losing memory with old age …need my mates help @nassercricket.”
After exchanging a few GIFs, Ganguly appreciated Nasser Hussain for his humour.
For the unversed, Sourav Ganguly made his Test debut in 1996 and scored a ton in his first game for India in the longest format of the game. He has played 113 Tests for the country and scored 7,212 runs at an average of over 42.
