    cute The Ganguly story in numbers

    When Sourav Ganguly first made his presence felt in international cricket, with two hundreds in successive Tests in England, there was every indication that Indian cricket had unveiled a batting giant. Twelve years later the numbers indicate that he has largely fulfilled his potential: as a one-day player he can easily be counted among the best, and though his Test record isn't as glittering, it's still one that he can be very satisfied about. Add his dynamic captaincy, which brought India unprecedented Test success, and it's clear that Ganguly has had an international career he can be mighty satisfied about.
    If there's some regret, it'll be that in Test cricket he didn't quite shine with the same incandescence as two other big names he has always been associated with - Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid. In his first 30 Tests, there was every indication that Ganguly was pushing towards greatness in Tests too, as he averaged more than 50 in his first three years. In the next 20 games, though, he slumped so badly that his overall average plummeted to 41, which is where it plateaued through the rest of his career.
