Former Indian captain, Sourav Ganguly relives his special shirtless celebration that took place at Lord's cricket ground after winning the final match of the Natwest series in 2002. In an exclusive interview with India TV, the former Indian cricketer opened up on how special it was to win the Natwest series.
Sourav Ganguly believes the shirtless celebration at Lord's happened in the heat of the moment. "It feels great. The win was great... beating England in England in the Tri-series, especially with a strong Sri Lanka then. So, it was remarkable," Ganguly told IndiaTV from London.
It was a historic win for Team India as they were struggling at the middle stage of the match and then came two young lads of Indian cricket team. Yuvraj Singh and Mohammad Kaif ensured that their team end on the right side as India won the match by 2 wickets with three balls to spare.
"No. Nothing was pre-planned. I had not thought about it. Just happened in the heat of the moment. It was just normal. There was no afterthought. It was just that we won and we beat England in England. It just happened," recalled Ganguly.
India will play England again at Lord's cricket ground on Thursday and the 46-year old cricketer felt history will repeat itself in the second ODI game.
"They have been in superb form in the T20I and ODI series... they will be the favourites to win the series at Lord's tomorrow," Ganguly concluded.
