One day after his birthday, Sourav Ganguly, the former India captain was seen again at the Lord's to relive one of India's most iconic moments. 16 years ago, on July 13, 2002, Ganguly had waved his jersey at the same ground after India chased down the target of 326 against England.
Ganguly wrote, "Back at lords ..this is where career started .." with his picture. Former England cricketer Nasser Hussain, who was the captain of the English team in that game took a jibe at the 46-year-old. "You’re on that balcony again ... nice to see you with your shirt on !!," he wrote.

Not only Hussain, even the official Twitter account of Lord's replied with a GIF of Ganguly waving his jersey in the Lord's balcony.
During the chase of 326, India crumbled down to 146/5 and 300+ scores were more than enough at that time. The heroes of the game were Yuvraj Singh (69) and Mohammad Kaif (87*), who added 121 for the 6th wicket to bring them back into the match. Kaif stayed till the end to ensure a victory for men in blue. Zaheer Khan had squeezed out the winning runs with 3 balls and 2 wickets to spare.
