Former India captain and current BCCI president Sourav Ganguly celebrated his 48th birthday on Wednesday as wishes poured in from the cricket fraternity from Sachin Tendulkar to Virat Kohli. Social media flooded with outpouring love and photos of ‘Dada’ with #HappyBirthdayDada trending on Twitter.

Ganguly is regarded as India’s game-changer in International cricket during the 2000s. The Bengal Tiger holds a massive fan base, much like his successor MS Dhoni, who celebrated his 39th birthday the previous day. Here are some of the top wishes from the cricket fraternity:

Having scored 18,433 runs in 421 International appearances across formats at an average of 44.74 including 38 centuries, Ganguly is India’s fourth-highest run-scorer across formats. Apart from leading India to the finals of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2003, Ganguly’s biggest achievement as a captain lies in overseas victories in the longest format at a time when the men in blue were not so strongly known Internationally.
