Former Indian cricket team skipper and member of Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC), Sourav Ganguly failed to have a ‘pleasurable’ train ride which he took after almost 16 years. As per reports, Ganguly was on his way to Balurghat, headquarters of the Dakshin Dinajpur district of Bengal, to unveil his 8-feet tall statue.

Taking a train journey after years, Dada was forced to change his berth after a spat with another passenger.

As per reports, Sourav Ganguly was with Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) secretary Abhishek Dalmiya on Padatik Express when he engaged in an argument with a passenger who had occupied his seat. 

However, the later did not agree with the former skipper which compelled the Railway Police Force (RPF) Personnel to intervene, following which Ganguly was shifted to AC 2-tier.

After facing a ‘not’ so good journey, Dada was finally at the spot to unveil his statue where scores of fans turned up to get his glimpse.

Earlier, Sourav Ganguly had been in the news for quite some time over the selection of the coach for Team India. He is also a member of the CAC which had appointed Ravi Shastri as the coach.
