Sourav Ganguly changed the complexion of Indian cricket. He took over when the team was badly affected by the match-fixing scandal. However, with his aggressive captaincy, he led India to many memorable wins.Ganguly played his farewell Test against Australia in Nagpur in November 2008.
Dhoni, who was leading the side asked Ganguly to lead the side as a token of respect for the former captain. Dada never saw this coming and was surprised by this move.Even though he turned down the offer first, Dhoni asked again when the match came to a close, and this time Dada couldn't refuse the offer. Ganguly, one of India's most successful captains, led the side for one more time and one couldn't have asked for a better farewell.
