Dada – The Offside will never be the same!! :(

11 Nov


Its indeed sad to realize that Dada will never don India colors ever again…But the most satisfying thing to happen was he went out like a man in charge of his life, on his very own terms…finally!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Right through his career, Saurav Ganguly has had to bite his finger nails thanks to the tension created by the team management, the media, e-Chappel and sometimes his own bad luck and form!! But looking back now, it seems like the ‘God of the Off-side’ has fought it all pretty well…bravo! ๐Ÿ˜€

Being in office all day long, I could not watch his final day on the cricket field. But I did find time to take a look at the highlights…and I was overwhelmed by the fact that Dhoni actually handed over the charge of captaincy to Dada over the last hour of the match…it was an emotional moment for Dada and the spectators, and the Aussies were anyways crying!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Given the opportunity, the Prince of Bengal set his field like a man with a mission…the batsman was suddenly surrounded by a fortress of fielders and there was no chance for him to stay there longer but get out!! The Bengal tiger had his last pound of flesh!! As a matter of fact, it was this day 8 yrs ago that Dada took to field for the first time as Indian Captain!! ๐Ÿ˜€

This is just a small tribute to the man who made us love the off-side…He will always be remembered for his shirt waving on the balcony of Lords uttering the choicest of words…a man with an aggression to love for, and an attitude we can only envy!! ๐Ÿ˜€

May your kind’s emerge! Amen…
Have a wonderful post-retired life Dada…Ami tomake bhalobashi! ๐Ÿ˜€
