The sound of bat whacking ball would have Chandidas Ganguly waking up with a start in the middle of the night, only to find son Sourav batting in the drawing room with the domestic help bowling to him.
“My son has gone mad,” the father would say and tell his wife to get her son to realise that there is life beyond cricket as well. But his mother never had the heart to tell her son that it was all over and “he could never make it back to the Indian team”.
Moving lines those, on Sourav Ganguly's extreme dedication to making a comeback after being left out in 2005-06.
I am certainly as inspired by them as most of you, I am sure, are. My prayers are with him this series.
