Sourav Ganguly and MS Dhoni; two of India’s greatest captains. While one is reckoned more for instilling the fighting spirit in the team and teaching the players how to win overseas, the other is known for winning almost all the titles under the sun. The debate on who is better and greater between the two of them can go on till eternity, but it is not fair to pick one between the two.

Another thing the two great leaders share is birthday, well almost. While Dhoni celebrates it on July 7, ‘dada’ enjoys it on July 8. Only a single day separates their birthdays. This year around their birthdays, Ganguly decided to connect with his fans on social media. But a certain Ravi Shastri, who has been at loggerheads with him of late, decided to spoil the party and gate-crashed the conversation.

What ensued will leave you in splits. Check it out below:
