Some love Sourav Ganguly, others love to hate him, but no one can ignore him. Sourav Ganguly: The Lord of Cricket is about the man, the leader, the motivator and the icon whom youngsters admire. This book is a tribute to the grit, courage and dedication of the man who taught Indian cricketers to dream. He is the man who can be credited with building Team India, brick by brick.

The story of Sourav Ganguly is essentially that of a bright young lad’s metamorphosis into a leader in a battlefield called cricket. It is the kind of stuff that fairy tales are made of. This new edition features chapters on Saurav’s life after his years of playing cricket for India, as he became President of the Cricket Association of Bengal, host of the popular show Dadagiri and a supporter of football. A new phase has begun in Saurav’s career with his taking on the role of President of the BCCI. Including an updated chapter on Sourav’s cricketing statistics, this book is a must-have for all cricket fans.
