Top 5 Fighting Comebacks by Indian cricketers

  1. Sourav Ganguly

CricFitGangulyThe ‘Dada’ of Indian cricket has scripted an inspirational comeback in the truest sense. Indian cricket has seen it all during the reigns of Greg Chappell, the man who was under acute dislike of Sachin Tendulkar and many others from the beginning itself. Ganguly was accused of being a selfish cricketer. He was asked by the coach to step down from captain during a series in Zimbabwe in 2005 where he smashed a century.

After India’s glorifying run in 2003 World Cup, India had a successful tour of Australia which was eventually followed by a historic series win in Pakistan, Sourav Ganguly gained immense respect as the captain of India and was considered as perhaps one of the best captains till then. But some controversies, politics and form made him lose his place in the team.

Sourav Ganguly Reveals His All-Time XI

After a series of decent performances in domestic cricket, Ganguly fought his way back to the Indian team for the tour down under in South Africa in 2006. And the rest, as they say, is history. Dada played a superb half-century knock when everybody in the team has failed in that innings and eventually India won the match, which was the first ever Test victory in South Africa.

He smashed a double-century next year against Pakistan which was the highest score of the year.
