To err is human! Former India captain Sourav Ganguly, who is a well-respected person around the circuit made a goof-up for which he faced the heat on the internet. A Twitter account named Haryana Tweets came up with a tweet reminding one and all about the 92nd birth anniversary of former Haryana Chief Minister Bansi Lal Legha, who passed away in 2006. “Respects and homage to former Haryana CM and great administrator CM Bansi Lal on his birth anniversary,” read the tweet, to which the current president of Cricket Association of Bengal replied by wishing Bansi Lal ‘good health’. This is a common error which people make, but when Ganguly makes a mistake it gets noticed.
This is the post to which Ganguly responded.
Once Ganguly realised his mistake, he deleted the post but it was too late and trolls had got activated by then.
Sourav is regarded as one of the finest captains to have led the country. He is also credited for promoting young talent like Yuvraj Singh, Harbhajan Singh, Zaheer Khan and many more to become world-beaters.
