XtraTime Web Desk: India’s former skipper Sourav Ganguly turned 46 today just a day after another iconic cricketer M S Dhoni celebrated his 37th birthday with his teammates after the match against England. Ganguly and Dhoni are two of the best captains Indian cricket has ever produced.

Master blaster Sachin Tendulkar tweeted in Bengali saying, “Dada I wish your birthday filled with happiness and love. Wish you a year full of dadagiri.”

His team mate Virender Sehwag said, “Step 1-Wake up, blink your eyes twice & dance down the track. Step 2-Smash the bowler & at times even spectators (no violence intended). Step 3-Swing not only the ball but also ur hair,bowl ur heart out. Step 4-Celebrate like no one’s watching. To a wonderful man, #HappyBirthdayDada,” He also illustrated it with some pictures.

Ganguly’s former teammate VVS Laxman also took to Twitter to send his best wishes and so did Suresh Raina.

Ganguly arrived in style by scoring a century against England at the Lord’s cricket ground. He scored 18,575 runs in all formats to become the third highest run scorer for India. He holds the record for scoring India’s highest individual score, of 183 runs, at a World Cup. As a captain, Ganguly holds the record of being India’s most successful skipper overseas. He also led India to the final of the 2003 World Cup and most memorably, for hoisting his shirt after beating England in a thriller to win the Nat West Trophy.
