Sourav was introduced into the world of cricket by his elder brother Snehasiah, and Sourav has been regarded as one of India's most successful captains in modern times. He began his career by playing in state and school teams, and he is currently, the 5th highest run scorer in One Day Internationals (ODIs) and was the 5th person in history to cross the 10,000 run landmark.

However, both families reconciled and a formal wedding was held in February 1997. Ganguly's dispute with Greg Chappell resulted in many headlines in September 2005, when Chappell became the coach for the India tour of Zimbabwe. Than in February 2008, Ganguly joined as the captain of Kolkata Riders (KKR) team, owned by Bollywood actor Shahrukh Khan, which was part of the Indian Premier League (IPL).

Born into an affluent family, Ganguly was introduced into the world of cricket by his elder brother Snehasish. He is regarded as one of India's most successful captains in modern times. He started his career by playing in state and school teams.

After a series of playing in different Indian domestic tournaments such as the Ranji and Duleep trophies, Ganguly got his big-break while playing for India on their tour of England. He scored 131 runs and cemented his place in the Indian team. Ganguly's place in the team was assured after successful performances in series against Sri Lanka, Pakistan and Australia, winning the Man of the Match awards. In the 1999 Cricket World Cup, he was involved in a partnership of 318 runs with Rahul Dravid, which remains the highest overall partnership score in the World Cup tournament history.
Due to the match-fixing scandals in 2000 by other players of the team, and for his poor health, Indian captain Sachin Tendulkar resigned his position, and Ganguly was made the captain of the Indian cricket team. He was soon the subject of media criticism after an unsuccessful stint for county side Durham and for taking off his shirt in the final of the 2002 Natwest Trophy. He led India into the 2003 World Cup final, where they were defeated by Australia. Due to a decrease in individual performance, he was dropped from the team in the following year.
