Debut century more special than shirtless celebration at Lord’s, insists Sourav Ganguly

Debut century more special than shirtless celebration at Lord's, insists Sourav Ganguly

“I would never do it (go shirtless) now. Every time they would show that footage (on any sports channel), I called the producer and told him that I have 20,000 international runs and several hundreds. But he said that is what he wants to show. (The shirtless celebration) was done a lot more out of satisfaction. Do not forget the name on the (Lord’s) honour’s board (as a result of his century on Test debut). That will remain a lot more special”, Ganguly said at the India Today Conclave East 2017.
