Kolkata: Former India opener Sourav Ganguly on Saturday unveiled his eight-foot tall bronze statue at Balurghat after travelling in train for the first time in 15 years.

"I travelled in the train once after 2001. It's been almost after 15 years," Ganguly said as he alighted from the Padatik Express in Malda on Saturday morning.

He headed to Bikash Maidan in Balurghat where he was greeted by thousands of crowd. "At Dakshin Dinajpur, just human heads," the former left-hander tweeted.

He also posted a photo of him alongside the statue with a tweet: "Looks like me..."

The statue was of a young Ganguly raising his bat to acknowledge his first Test century against Australia in the Brisbane Test, 2003.
