Sourav Ganguly Biography and short wiki
Sourav Ganguly was born in Calcutta and is the youngest son of Chandidas and Nirupa Ganguly. Chandidas ran a flourishing printing company and was one of the richest men in the city.
Ganguly’s father Chandidas Ganguly expire at the age of 73 in 2013 after a long illness.
Since football was the favorite sport of the people of Calcutta, Ganguly was initially attracted to the game.
But academics came between his love of the sport and Nirupa was not very much in favor of Ganguly taking up cricket or any other sport as a career.
By this time, his older brother Snehasish was already an established cricketer for the Bengali cricket team.
He supported Ganguly’s dream of becoming a cricketer and asked her father to enroll Ganguly in a cricket training camp during his summer holidays. Ganguly was studying in the tenth grade at the time.
Although he was right-handed, Ganguly learned to hit with his left hand so that he could use his brother’s sports equipment.
After he proved to be a promising batsman, he was enrolled in a cricket academy. A multipurpose hall and a concrete wicket were built in their house so that he and Snehasish could practice the game.
They watched a number of old cricket match videos, especially the games of David Gower, whom Ganguly admired.
After scoring a goal against Orissa’s U-15 side for a century, he was appointed captain of the cricket team at the St. Xavier School, where several of his teammates complained about his supposed arrogance.
However, his enthusiasm for the game gave him the chance to make his first-class cricket debut for Bengal in 1989, the same year that his brother was removed from the team.
