Top 10 Iconic Images of Indian Cricket History


9. Sourav Ganguly’s shirt-waving act

Sourav Ganguly’s shirt-waving actUntil this point of time, there was a common perception among people that Indian cricketers are shy and passive personalities. But Dada’s style of captaincy was destined to defy all the popular opinions about the Indian team. The Prince of Kolkata was a fiery character who played the game with his heart on his sleeves. After winning the memorable NatWest Trophy final in 2002, Ganguly had taken off his shirt and waved it in the Lord’s balcony. The former Indian skipper was a firm believer in giving tit-for-tat to the opponents. The shirt-waving act was Dada’s response to Andrew Flintoff who had done a similar thing after winning a match at Mumbai, earlier. It will go down as one of the iconic images of Indian cricket history.
