RARE VIDEO: THIS gesture by Andrew Flintoff forced Sourav Ganguly to take his shirt off at Lord's balcony

New Delhi: Soon after Indian cricket team clinched a thriller in the Natwest Series final against England in 2002, the then skipper Sourav Ganguly removed his shirt at Lord's balcony – a gesture which became one of the most iconic moments in Indian cricket.

Ganguly's gesture, which did not go well with several cricket experts, was said to be in revenge of what Andrew Flintoff did in India after England's win in one of the ODIs.

Batting first, England put a decent total of 255 runs on board. In reply, India fell short of the total by 5 runs, despite a fighting 80-run knock by Ganguly.

With 11 runs required off the final six balls, Flintoff bowled a brilliant last over where he scalped the remaining two wickets.

As Flintoff took off his shirt, a visibly upset Ganguly stormed back in the dressing room.
