He played his first match for his country against the West Indies in 1992. At No. 6 in an ODI at the Gabba in Brisbane, he only managed to score 3 runs, so it wasn’t the best start. He was promptly benched since his attitude toward the game was openly criticized and he was thought to be “arrogant.” Additionally, it was reported that Sourav Ganguly said it was not his responsibility to carry beverages for his teammates and later rejected the claims. He was thus kicked from the team.

Then a series started, which turned out to be Sourav Ganguly’s and Indian cricket’s turning point. Australia was the current world champion at the time, therefore any team’s chances of beating them seemed remote. Sourav Ganguly led India in 2001 when they ended Australia’s string of 16 straight test match victories. Another highlight of Sourav Ganguly’s career was during the Natwest Series, when India defeated England in an ODI at Lord’s and he waved his T-shirt from the Lord’s balcony.
