India's most successful captain Sourav Ganguly is set to bid farewell to the international game at the end of the ongoing Test against the Aussies at Nagpur. The left-hander walked in to bat at the fall of VVS Laxman's wicket in India's first innings on Thursday afternoon.

It was at Nagpur that 'Dada' had to pull out of a Test against Australia at the last minute in controversial circumstances. Many believe it was the start of the slide in his career then which ultimately resulted in him losing the captaincy and being dropped from the team for around a year in 2006, though his successful comeback after that is still regarded as one of the best ever witnessed.

Ganguly captained India in 49 Test matches out of which the team won 21. He was also India's most successful captain in one-dayers and led the team to the final of the 2003 World Cup.

His run tally reads -- 7127 runs in 112 Tests and 11,363 runs in 311 ODIs.

Since we could be seeing the 36-year-old Bengali southpaw's last knock in Test cricket, here's an opportunity to share your memories of his batting, captaincy and all you know about the him.
