His condition had worsened due to fear
New Delhi. Sourav Ganguly has been one of the best cricketers of India. He scored a lot of runs for Team India in his career. Along with being a cricketer, he was also the BCCI President. Ganguly was born in West Bengal. He started his international career in 1996. Dada had shown this by scoring a century in the debut match itself that India has got a great batsman in him. Once a strange incident has also happened with Ganguly. This was disclosed by former England cricketer Ian Botham.
Ian Botham had told in his book that once Sourav Ganguly had an encounter with a ghost. Actually, it is about the year 2002 when Team India stayed at Lumley Castle Hotel in England. Referring to this incident, Sourav Ganguly told. No one was in my room in that hotel. I was alone. I heard the sound of running tap. When I went to the bathroom, no one was there.”
Ganguly further said, “The sound of the tap was coming even after I closed the tap. This happened 3 to 4 times. I was quite scared. I was the captain, so I could not even tell anyone. I had to go to another room, so I told Robin Singh that the heating in my room was not working. So let me stay in my room. Robin easily accepted my point.
Please tell that in the year 2005, former Australian cricketer Shane Watson also stayed in this hotel. Something similar strange incident had happened with him that night. After the scare, he slept the whole night in Brett Lee’s room. While disclosing this in an interview, he told that I was quite scared. I cannot describe that incident.
