We All Got Carried Away After NatWest Final Win, Says Sourav Ganguly

Kolkata, July 5: Former India captain and current BCCI president Sourav Ganguly said the team which won the 2002 NatWest Trophy in memorable fashion got carried away after the and rightly so after such a pulsating encounter.

It was on July 13, 2002 Ganguly and his young team won the NatWest Trophy final, chasing a steep target of 326 with just three balls to spare.

While Mohammad Kaif played a brilliant knock of 87 not out, he was well supported by Yuvraj Singh who scored 69 and both helped India script one of the most memorable wins in the history of the sport.

Following the win, Ganguly had waived his T-shirt at the Lord’s balcony following — an image which is still fresh in the mind of every cricket fan in the country.

“It was a great moment. We all got carried away, but that’s what sport is. When you win a game like that, you celebrate even more. That was one of the great cricket I have been part of,” Ganguly told India Test opener Mayank Agarwal in an interview shared by BCCI on their Twitter page, with hashtag #DadaOpensWithMayank.

to compare the 2003 Cup final where India were thrashed by Australia and the NatWest win, Ganguly said: “They both have their own place. The World Cup final has its own place. We were smashed by Australia. They were the best team in that generation. As I said before, winning every game hands down except Australia I thought was a great achievement.”

“NatWest had its own charm. You win in England, on a Saturday at Lords. It’s a remarkable feeling it’s a packed house. I am sure you will get to be there when we travel for the 5 Test matches.
