A Century Is Not Enough by Sourav Ganguly review: Look back in candour - The HinduOver his seven-or-so years on the domestic circuit before making his international debut, Vikram Rathour was considered a formidable opening batsman. In fact, his reputation of being " plucky without being dour, and a fluent driver of the ball " — not to mention a prolific accumulator of runs — preceded him. So when he turned out for India in , there was a lot expected of him and the levels of anticipation were high — not least because the recent batch of opening batsmen had been iffy, makeshift, ineffective or all of the above. Just as described above, the former Indian skipper's book came with the reputation of its subject and a major burden of expectation.

A Century Is Not Enough by Sourav Ganguly review: Look back in candour
Dhoni, Ganguly held a unique space. In the resultant turmoil, Chappell left, while Ganguly, who was dropped for a while, made a riveting comeback and bowed out in style. True to Ganguly-lore that oscillated between ecstasy and pathos, he scored 85 and 0 in his final Test at Nagpur against Australia in A decade after he folded his Test whites, Ganguly opens up about a journey from nervous first-timer in the India-shade in to the swansong that stretched into a few seasons of the Indian Premier League. Over pages, Ganguly deconstructs his playing days and there is candour and the obvious never-say-die spirit. The early parts deal with the gawkiness of his formative months when he was acutely conscious about senior room-mate Dilip Vengsarkar during the tour of Australia. But all that changed with my performance.

To many cricket fans, the modern Indian cricket era truly began after Sachin Tendulkar made his debut in but the man who at long last managed to mould the team into a winning unit - one capable of winning away from home too - only took over in That man was Sourav Chandidas Ganguly.
