If you are an Indian and a cricket lover, the name Sourav Ganguly will bring back some gold-laden memories. If you look at the records, Mahendra Singh Dhoni is the most successful captain in the history of Indian Cricket. But more than 50% of the cricket lovers in this country won’t agree with the statistics.
When Ganguly took the reins of the Indian Cricket Team, the country was coping with the horrible shock of the match-fixing scandal involving ex-captain Mohammad Azharuddin and star cricketer Ajay Jadeja among others. The credibility of cricket as a sport was challenged like no other sport in the history of the world.
On came the skipper Ganguly and transformed the very core of Indian cricket. The meek Indian cricketers started taking the fight to the mighty Aussies(3 time World Champions consecutively and No.1 in both Test and One-day for 12 years).
As an Indian and a cricket fan, you would definitely know about the 2001 India-Australia test match at Eden Gardens. Australia won 16 consecutive test matches before that one and then Aussie captain Steve Waugh called their India tour ‘The Last Frontier’. That Eden Test went in the history book as the Greatest Test Match ever played. India didn’t only win the match, they also went on to beat Australia in the series.
This documentary is about the journey of the Warrior Prince of Kolkata who taught us how to fight against all odds and snatch victory from mightier oppositions in challenging conditions. We have Sachin Tendulkar, Greg Chappell, Ricky Ponting among many others giving interviews about Ganguly and Sourav himself telling his story. The documentary was uploaded in 8 different parts and we have presented it one after another. Sorry for not being able to provide the whole film in one video. We couldn’t take the risk of tampering with copyright issues. Please bear with us on this one!
