London/IBNS: From his Test debut in 1996 to waving his shirt in 2002, Lord's Cricket Ground in London remained memorable for current Indian cricket board chief Sourav Ganguly, who had a sensational career.

Twitterati Thursday went crazy after they spotted Ganguly along with former English cricketer Geoffrey Boycott watching the second Test between India and England here.

Adding fuel to that, Ganguly, a former Indian skipper, shared a picture on social media capturing his various moments at Lord's, from the 1996 debut match to 2021 when he is now a cricket administrator.

"Came here as (a) player first in 1996 ..and then as captain..enjoyed the game at lord's today as an administrator...india (India) was and is in a good position all the times ..this game of cricket is majestic," he wrote on Instagram.

Not just hitting a debut Test hundred here as a young batsman in 1996, Ganguly as an Indian captain took off his shirt andwaved it as a celebration after winning 2002 Natwest Trophy at the iconic Lord's balcony.

However on Thursday, it was KL Rahul who stole the show by slamming a century to put India in a comfortable position at stumps on day one of the second Test.
