When its Sourav Ganguly’s birthday, his fans more than anyone else would make sure no one misses it. Come July 8, ‘Dada’s fans, who still continue to worship the former cricketer, make sure they celebrate like Ganguly is a gift to mankind. So when wicketkeeper-batsman Naman Ojha wished the former India skipper on Twitter two months after the actual day, Ganguly’s fans got together to knock some sense into him.
Here’s what Ojha tweeted:
Happy Birthday dada @SGanguly99

After getting over the initial shock of how Ojha could get it so wrong, most trolls tried to figure out what led to the faux pas.

Ganguly celebrates his birthday on July 8. The 46-year-old seemed to have ignored Ojha’s tweet as he’s busy with ongoing India’s tour of England.
Ojha has not played a single match since May 5, 2018. He was not a regular in Delhi Daredevils’ (DD) side as they banked on Rishabh Pant. He played just one game for DD, the lowest number of matches in a season in his decade-long IPL career.
He has not made it to the Indian side since 2015. The Madhya Pradesh cricketer has had a short international career comprising 2 T20Is, 1 ODI and 1 Test.
