More than 15000 runs in international cricket.

 

He scored 183 against Sri Lanka at Taunton in the 1999 cricket World Cup,the highest by an Indian in World Cup cricket.

 

Under sourav's stewardship, splendid eight-match winning streak took  indian team all the way to the World Cup final in 2003 after a long hiatus of 20 odd years.

 

His opening partnership with Tendulkar is the most successful ever in one-day cricket. This pair has the highest number of century partnership (16) for the first wicket. They together have scored 5308 runs at an average of 45.37.

 

He is the only Indian Captain to win both the One Day and Test Series on Pakistani soil- Victory in Pakistan - India's first away from home in 11 years.

 

Sourav has the distinction of being one of the few players in the World to Score a century and take 4 wickets in the same match. (ODIs)

 

Sourav and Tendulkar were involved in a World Record Opening Partnership of 252.

 

Rahul Dravid once commented, "On the off-side, first there is God, then there is Ganguly”.

 

This quote was made after Ganguly called Dravid for a run and midway sent him back and Dravid was run out in the third test against the West Indies at Barbados. "Ganguly has thrown a drowning man both ends of the rope."

 

Sourav Ganguly 's new found approach to batting might fetch him tonnes of runs in the Caribbean, but it may cost him his record of hitting more sixes than anyone in the history of World Cup. Ganguly has slammed 23 sixes in 18 matches, one more than West Indies batting great Viv Richards, but don't expect him to sizzle up similarly in this edition of World Cup, even against no-hopers Bermuda and Bangladesh.

 

Ganguly has played 73 tests, scoring 4,586 runs at an average of 42.07 with 11 hundreds and a highest score of 173. He has also captured 23 test wickets. In 249 one-day internationals, he has scored 9,309 runs at an average of 42.12 with 22 hundreds and a highest score of 183. He has also captured 93 wickets with a best of 5-16.

 

He has achieved significant successes as captain, his individual performance deteriorated during his captaincy, especially after successes in the world cup and the tour of Australia in 2003 and the Pakistan series in 2004.

 

Despite his hot and cold streaks Sourav Ganguly is only the third Indian Test match batsman to maintain a career average that never dipped below 40 runs per innings for his entire Test career.

 

Sourav Ganguly has the highest Test and ODI aggregate of any left-handed batsman India has produced and his 12 Test and 22 ODI centuries are also a record for any Indian left-hander.

 

January 12, 2007 Sourav Ganguly was reinstated to the ODI team for the first two ODIs against West Indies. This came almost 15 months after he was dropped from the ODI side in 2005. He staged an excellent comeback by scoring a match-winning 98 run knock in Nagpur on his return in the first ODI. He was also selected in the 30 probables list for World Cup 2007 to be held in West Indies starting in March.
