Ganguly's wild run and an allround victory for Pune Warriors

Ever see Ganguly run so fast like today after Pietersen's victory?? That should be ranked second amongst Ganguly's special moments after his shirtless act after the Natwest series victory in Lords.. :)

It has to be Dada's day today... Whatever Sourav Ganguly was doing today turned out to be a master stroke.... be it his batting, promotion of Smith, bowling, field placements.. everything went for him today...
Ganguly was due for some good performances in this IPL 2012 but what a match-winning performance it was today.

Picture this - Ganguly running rather sprinting like a 100meters champion.... taking off after Pietersen got bowled off the very first ball Dada bowled in this IPL.

A swashbuckling knock from Jesse Ryder (86 runs) and an all-round performance by Sourav Ganguly (41 runs and 2 wickets) gave Pune Warriors a convincing 20-run win over Delhi Daredevils in the Indian Premier League (IPL) game at the Ferozeshah Kotla in New Delhi today.

Dada got the wicket of Pietersen who was in a dangerous mood and the allrounder Irfan Pathan.. He should have got a 3rd wicket too but for Mathews' drop catch.

Delhi Daredevil's captain Virender Sehwag said in the presentation ceremony that he has never seen Ganguly running so fast like how he did today after taking Pietersen's wicket.

After the Natwest series famous celebration that Ganguly did by taking off his shirts, this amazing run celebrating Pietersen's wicket would probably rank second... 
I was also pretty amused by the way Ganguly's hair was behaving :)  There is something fishy in it ;) you know what I mean.. hehe..
Hail Dada!!  Looking forward to many such moments :)
