Kolkata: Most of them had come to see runs from Sourav Ganguly's blade. They had filled the Eden Gardens Saturday to see him lead Pune Warriors India to a victory over the Kolkata Knight Riders, which had dumped him as a player a year back, in their crucial Indian Premier League (IPL) clash.
But they were left with mixed feelings. The left-hander played a useful knock but his side finished on the losing end in a thriller.
Ganguly overcame initial jitters to post 36 off 35 balls and was involved in a 73-run stand with Angelo Mathews (35 off 27 balls) after the Warriors seemed to be tottering at 55/5 in reply to the Knight Riders' 150/5.
