Former India captain Sourav Ganguly has left behind a legacy in the cricketing world that has been matched only by a handful in the sport. Whether it was taking over the role of the Indian captain soon after the match-fixing scandal rocked Indian cricket, or bursting into the scene with a memorable century at Lord's that made him an indispensable part of the Indian for more than a decade thereafter, there are many a memorable moment to talk of when discussing his storied career.

Firstpost recently caught up with the 'Prince of Kolkata' ahead of the launch of his book A Century Is Not Enough — his venture into the world of writing after donning the roles of a commentator as well as an administrator — where among the topics discussed over the course of his career as well as his personal life happened to be his on-field chemistry with 'Master Blaster' and long-time teammate Sachin Tendulkar.

The two crossed paths in their junior cricket days, and went on to form one of the most successful partnerships of all time, with the pair still holding the record for most partnership runs in ODI cricket.

Apart from Tendulkar, Ganguly also opened up about his relationship with some of the stalwarts of that era — Rahul Dravid and Anil Kumble. Don't forget to watch the full interview with the 'Dada' this Friday, only on Firstpost.
