For Indian cricket fans, the sight of John Wright and Sourav Ganguly sitting together and discussing cricket set the mind racing to the times when these two gentlemen took Indian cricket and nurtured it and gave it shape.
Captain Ganguly and coach Wright were the men responsible for giving Indian cricket new direction and they combined perfectly to strategise many India wins in the past. They shared a superb partnership as captain and coach of the India team between 2000 and 2005.
With Michael Clarke also joining in, Ganguly and Wright spoke about the 2003 campaign, even joking about their respective roles in the India dressing room.
“When I was captain, John Wright was making all the decisions and I followed like an obedient student,” Ganguly said
To this, Wright replied, “My memory must have failed then because I think you were in charge and I used to just potter around in the background.”
Twitter absolutely erupted when they saw Ganguly and Wright combine all over again:
