Fanatastic memories ...

A post shared by SOURAV GANGULY (@souravganguly) on Feb 12, 2020 at 9:50am PST

As seen in the post, the photo posted by Ganguly contained the logo of Getty Images, and Yuvraj got the chance to troll his former captain.

Ganguly's former opening partner and batting great Tendulkar used the opportunity to probe fans.  "Is there any other instance of Dada at Lords that one can think of?"

Ganguly had famously scored 131 on debut in June 1995 against England while fellow debutant Rahul Dravid scored 95 in the same innings.

But Ganguly's Lord's balcony theatrics, after India's Natwest Series win in 2002, will remain as one of the unforgettable moments in the history of the game.     

In the picture, Ganguly can be seen celebrating the ton with Dravid walking towards his future captain to congratulate him.

In the years since, Ganguly became the captain of the Indian team and is credited with ushering in the likes of Virender Sehwag, Yuvraj Singh and Harbhajan Singh.
