It’s Sourav Ganguly fever here at Juggernaut Books and what better day to declare our love for him than February 14! With only 10 days to go for the launch of Sourav’s book, A Century Is Not Enough, we’ve put together tweets from you, professing love to Dada. So much love in just 280 characters.
I like to watch Dada's batting since I was a child. He is aggressive about cricket.He has a record of continue winning 4 man of the match awards.Saurav is the one of the successful captain in cricket history.He knows well to which player and when to give him a chance

In awe of his skills, success and career!
Because only he could show us how massive sixes are hit to an off spinner by stepping outside the crease no going to the pitch of the ball negating any turn. Don't doubt me, they were massive sixes especially against the Kenyans in 2003 WC. 😉#ILoveSourav

The person you dream to be like one day.
The way he hits those beautiful sixers by dancing down the ground made me rethink why i’m not a left handed batsman.

Nothing less than a legend. This message leaves no doubt about that!
He is an emotion for us people in Bengal. We grew up with Dada’s aggression, fights, achievements and integrity. We can talk a full day why Dada is the best captain. You want to know why we love Dada? Well, a word of caution! Don’t even dare to say anything against him in Bengal.

To know he is not just loved. He is respected which gave way to love.
I love Sourav for being the first captain to do way with the abominable 'zonal' selection system, tell the selectors to lump it and select players on merit. Also – the cover drive

There is never a time when you don’t have time for him!
Sitting at a cafe in Chandigarh with my gf (now wife), i saw on TV that Sourav is playing at 68. And I told her, "let's go to the stadium, he's going to score his last century of test career." We just made it on time to see him flick on the leg side and lift his bat. #ILoveSourav

Questions are many but the answer is the same!
Who saved us from Match Fixing scandals?
Who earned respect for us among the world?
Who conquered the mighty Aussies; shocked the world and stopped the record?
Who hits sixes over the roof?
Who hits fours on offside even if all d fielders r there??
ONE NAME…!! #ILoveSourav

Treasuring moments so they can cherish them forever!
#IloveSourav For me, 2 best incidents of Sourav's captaincy were
Hitting first ball he faced in 2003 World Cup Final hard. Intent is clear, Only Attack.
First Test in 2003 Down Under.With his 144, He silenced all those who were chanting Chin Music..
— S M Jalageri (@smjalageri) January 12, 2018
He stepped back strong and he leaped forward ten times stronger.
#ILoveSourav because every time Dada was left out, he came back stronger. If you throw him at wolves he will come back leading the pack. First Indian to hit an ODI century against Australia in Australia.

A force to be reckoned with, no doubt about that!
The two ceturies against kenya in 2003 WC as a leader showed that you shouldn’t under estimate the opposition.
— sai krishna teja (@wakeupsak53) January 12, 2018
Seems that no words can do his greatness enough justice.
Sourav Ganguly Isn't Just A Name, It's An Emotion.
I Love Dada Because Of His Charismatic Leadership And Never Give Up Attitude.He Did Things For The Team That No One Else Had Done Before.He Is A Synonym For Being The Best At What You https://t.co/qGbEjMAbaB forever#ILoveSourav

The living mirror of ‘motivation’
When you're down and out, you don't have to go out to seek inspiration to motivate yourself. You just have to search for 'Ganguly Comeback' on YouTube and things will fall in place automatically. An inspiration beyond unparalleled boundaries #ILoveSourav

Not everyone can build a house from littered pieces. He made an entire castle!
He took the charged as a captain when Indian team almost collapsed due to spot fixing.he made team so strong that it reached in to the WC finals. He changed the mindset of Indian cricket team.his aggression,Passion,attitude made him diff from the other cricketers.
