Sourav Ganguly felt very happy after the Delhi Capitals chased victory over the KKR team in IPL 2023.


Sourav Ganguly made his Test debut for India against England in the second Test of the three-match series played at Lord’s Cricket Ground, London, in June 1996. In his debut innings, Ganguly batted at number three and scored a magnificent century (131 runs) in the first innings.

Ganguly’s debut innings were crucial in helping India recover from a shaky start and put up a competitive total of 429 runs. He showed great temperament and skill against the English bowlers, especially in negotiating the swing and seam movement on a lively pitch. Ganguly’s century in his debut Test is considered one of the finest debuts by an Indian batsman in Test cricket history.

In the second innings, Ganguly was dismissed for just 3 runs, but India managed to win the match by 95 runs, with Ganguly also contributing with his left-arm spin bowling, taking 3 wickets in the match. Overall, it was an outstanding debut performance by Sourav Ganguly, which helped him establish himself as one of the brightest talents in Indian cricket.

On April 20, Delhi Capitals chased victory over Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League 2023. However, it was their first victory, and they are staying at the bottom line of the tournament. And this victory has made Sourav Ganguly think back on his Test debut season in the past.

It is just a matter of the efforts of a player that when he performs well, the team gets good results, but when he fails to mark a good performance, his side also fails to win the game. I really felt happy that my team finally won one game in the competition. I was sitting over there and was thinking about my first test-run experience, when I was batting under pressure to make a good score in the game, says Sourav Ganguly after the match against KKR ended. It was the luckiest match that our team finally returned to the competition, and I think they will create a good spot in the IPL 2023, added Sourav Ganguly.
