- Saurav Ganguly trolled by Nasser Hussain after Dada posted a selfie on Lords Balcony
- Hussain said nice to see you with your shirt on
In today’s latest cricket news, Sourav Ganguly was brutally trolled by former England cricket captain Nasser Hussain. Ganguly is currently in London and Dada was recalling his fond memories at Lords Cricket Ground where he made his International debut back in 1996. Ganguly posted a picture titled “Back at lords ..this is where career started” and received an unexpected reply from Nasser Hussain who trolled Ganguly by saying “You’re on that balcony again … nice to see you with your shirt on”.
Nasser Hussain trolls Sourav Ganguly
Nasser Hussain was referring to the iconic yet heavily criticised moment when Sourav Ganguly took off his shirt in celebrating India’s win in the 2002 Natwest Trophy final. At the time, Nasser Hussain and English media were not happy with Ganguly’s acts, however, over the years Hussain and Ganguly have forged a friendship and the former England skipper did not shy away from trolling Ganguly for his selfie on Lords’ balcony.
India’s win in the 2002 Natwest Trophy final was seen as a remarkable success at the time as Team India were struggling at 146/5 with all their top guns (Ganguly, Sehwag, Sachin, Dravid) back in the pavilion. But it was Yuvraj Singh and Mohammad Kaif’s day to remember as the young duo took India home to a famous win. Yuvraj and Kaif put together a 121-run partnership and after Yuvraj lost his wicket at the score 267, Kaif stayed on and finished the job for India.
Ganguly’s overjoyed celebrations were due to Andre Flintoff doing the same after beating India in the final game of a 6-match bilateral series in India only months before the Natwest Series. Till date, Ganguly has never shared any regrets over his decision to remove his shirt on Lords’ balcony and expressed his raw emotions after India beat England in the Natwest Series final. However, everytime the moment is recalled on the internet, Dada does have to face occasional troll and this time it was Nasser Hussain to take the pot shot and have fun at Ganguly’s experience.
