INDvsENG blast from the past – When Saurav Ganguly ruled the Lord’s on his debut


India and England are playing the second test match of the Indian tour of England 2018. The second match is being played at the iconic Lord’s stadium, London. The first day of the second test match was washed out due to consistent rain. We hope that the second day will bring the Cricket back to the field and we will have a four-day game. In the meantime, we will take you to in the past when India’s finest left-handed player Saurav Ganguly started his test career.

Saurav Ganguly at Lord’s

While we all waiting for the second day’s game, we bring you one of the best debut innings at Lord’s. The day when Saurav Ganguly engraved his name in the history books by scoring a century in his first test inning. After losing the first test match against England, India was down. In the second test match, India gave chances to Saurav Ganguly and Rahul Dravid. Both of them played brilliantly. While Saurav Ganguly scored the century, Rahul Dravid missed the mark by five runs.
