On the occasion of Sourav Ganguly’s 52nd birthday, former Indian cricketers Manoj Tiwary and Munaf Patel took to social media to express their admiration and best wishes for the legendary cricketer.

Manoj Tiwary, who has often spoken highly of Gangulyโ€™s influence on his career, posted a special message on X (formerly known as Twitter). โ€œYou are, you were, and you will always be an inspiration. Love you Dada and wishing you a very happy birthday,โ€ Tiwary wrote, showing his deep respect and affection for the former Indian skipper.

Munaf Patel, another cricketer who played under Gangulyโ€™s captaincy, praised Ganguly’s pivotal role in the evolution of Indian cricket. โ€œA big hand of this guy in development of #IndianCricketTeam where we are today. A very #HPYBIRTHDAY legend @SGanguly99. Wishing you healthy life ahead #Dada,โ€ Patel shared on X, acknowledging Ganguly’s significant contributions to the sport.

The Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), which Ganguly once captained, also joined in the celebrations. The franchise tweeted, โ€œMaharaja. Dada. The Prince of Kolkata. Happy Birthday, Sourav Ganguly,โ€ highlighting his enduring legacy in the IPL and his beloved city of Kolkata.

Ganguly, often referred to as the ‘God of off-side’ by his former teammate Rahul Dravid, has left an indelible mark on cricket. His career, which saw many spectacular contributions on the field, continues to inspire as he now serves as the Director of Cricket for the Delhi Capitals in the IPL.

Sourav Gangulyโ€™s journey in cricket is a tale of resilience and brilliance. He made his Test debut in the summer of 1996 against England and earned the nickname ‘Dada’. His debut century at Lord’s, followed by another century in the second Test, cemented his place in cricket history, making him only the third player to score centuries in each of his first two Test innings. Ganguly’s leadership style and his partnership with Sachin Tendulkar at the top of the ODI order are legendary, contributing to some of India’s most memorable cricketing moments.
