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.
