Sourav Ganguly 127 vs South Africa Highlights

Cricket Highlights - Sourav Ganguly 127 vs South Africa


Watch the highlights of Sourav Ganguly 127 vs South Africa - Standard Bank triangular series of the 1st ODI match played between India and South Africa at Johannesburg in 05th October 2001.

Sourav Ganguly smashed a tremendous 127-runs off 126-balls including 14-fours and 5-sixes against South Africa at Johannesburg in 2001.

India's opening stand of 193, it was hardly surprising that the Indian innings consisted of Sourav Ganguly and Sachin Tendulkar and not very much else.

The pair batted beautifully together, but on this occasion it was the Indian captain who set the pace, so much so that his hundred and Tendulkar's 50 came up in the same over of the innings.

Sourav Ganguly's 127 was the highest individual one-day score by an Indian at the Wanderers with India's 279 for five the highest team total - up until the point, of course, that South Africa passed it.

Sourav Ganguly was in simply tremendous form. He had spent the week nursing a tender right index finger, but there was little sign of this as he sprayed boundaries all around the corner and when he hit it in the air, it tended to stay hit as he helped himself to five sixes.
