Sourav Ganguly is considered one of the captains of the game and on the occasion of his 48th birthday, Yuvraj Singh shared the story of a joke made with him, which angered the former Indian captain.
Ganguly supports young players initially
Yuvraj, who made his international debut under Ganguly’s captaincy, posted a video on Instagram and added praise to his captain, saying, “The journey was great under your leadership. You initially supported me and the young players who needed it. Thank you for doing this. I remember when you gave me the BCCI Trophy at Edgbaston. That day I told you that without your support this could not happen. So thank you for your support. ”
Dada was angry with Yuvi-Harbhajan’s joke
Yuvraj said that once upon a time Harbhajan and his jokes had angered Ganguly and he even talked about leaving the captaincy. Yuvraj said, “When I, Bhajji (Harbhajan Singh), Jack (Zaheer Khan), (Ashish) Nehra and Veeru (Virender Sehwag) got very close to you, we also joked with you. I would like to share a similar joke with everyone when we were playing with Pakistan and then I and Bhajji made a fake newspaper of Times of India, it was not my idea of Bhajji. We wrote the statements of all the players and put your name that you have written.
Ganguly was ready to resign
He said, “I remember you said the next day that if I said something like that, I would resign.” I know that you were quite annoyed. Then Rahul (Dravid) gently pointed out that this is an April Fool’s joke. I think you knew who could do such an act and you ran straight after me and Bhajji. Sorry for this But also love for it. I love this moment very much. ”
Yuvraj also recalled the moment when captain Ganguly took off his T-shirt after India’s thrilling win in the NatWest Trophy final in 2002. He said, “And such a moment also came in 2002 when you took off your T-shirt in the final of NatWest Trophy, your body, I did not see such a body of a cricketer.” It’s good after that that you never took off your T-shirt. Leave a joke but that moment was very emotional, I also took off my T-shirt but due to the cold of luck I wore the T-shirt below. ”
