    Sourav Ganguly's YouTube moments

    In commemoration of Sourav Ganguly, who retired yesterday, here are some memorable 'dada' video clips from YouTube.

    Shoaib Akhtar dents Bengal's pride - I happened to volunteer to edit the Cricinfo headlines section, and used that rather provocative headline, when Akhtar's short ball hit Ganguly in the rib cage, resulting in Ganguly retiring hurt temporarily. There was a lot of 'interesting' feedback (by Bongs) to Cricinfo's editorial team after that headline went up!

    Teeing off against Sri Lanka at Taunton during the 1999 World Cup.

    Providing a blazing start in the 2002 NatWest Series final after which he forgot to keep his shirt on.

    Turned down an offer of bad light and mounted (along with Tendulkar) a thrilling assault on some very tired England bowlers.

    In the company of Sehwag, he totally destroyed England at the ICC Knock-Out in Sri Lanka.

    2003: A highly motivating century at Brisbane.

    2004: A sensational assault in the first one-dayer at Karachi.

    2005: Worried about turning up at the match referee's room again, so he makes it clear to Mohammad Yousuf that he doesn't want that situation to come up.

    2006: Scintillating comeback which ended up helping India win a test in South Africa.

    2007: First international century at his home ground. First test double hundred at Bangalore.

    Edged and 'caught' by Michael Clarke at Sydney.

    A match-winning 87 against South Africa.

    Off the field:
    Looking very out of place while dancing in a commercial.

    Appearing in a commercial asking for everyone to support the Indian team.

    Oh, and by the way, I will be at the test cricket tomorrow!

    No malice, Stu. This video didn't show up in my search for 'ganguly' on YouTube.

    Uh, he hasn't quite retired yet. Just announced it.

    Well, if he does something special this series, we'll just add a relevant YouTube video (if found) here!

    Just kidding jagadish. Couldn't resist - it's the first thing that popped into my mind, because of all the "catching" talk that went on last summer. Just joking - no malice intended...

    I am a great fan of Saurav Ganguly and really missing him a lot. I got the feeling like I lost someone very special from my family. Best of luck for his 2ns innings life.

    A movie based on Sourav Ganguly (DaDa) written and Directed by Dada Himself.
