A selfie taken by former cricketer and current BCCI president, Sourav Ganguly at the Bengaluru airport has gone viral on social media. Ganguly was visiting the city on Wednesday and was greeted by a large number of fans at the airport.
Ganguly, as BCCI President, met Rahul Dravid at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru, in order to come up with pointers which could help improve the academy.
In the photo, Ganguly can be seen dressed in his classic sleeveless sweater and shirt; he can be seen surrounded by countless fans and security personnel who didn't want to let go of an opportunity to feature in the selfie with him. As expected, the selfie quickly went viral and broke the internet.
