Ganguly, who arrived here from Kolkata via Malda by Padatik Express, was welcomed by thousands of his fans, who constantly chanted "dada", "dada".

A happy Ganguly posed beside his statue and later posted the picture in his Twitter handle with a comment "Looks like me", followed by two smilies.

The statue was made by Siliguri-based sculptor Sushanta Pal, who had never seen Ganguly in person earlier.

The statue, commissioned by the Dakshin Dinajpur District Sports Association, is made of fibre.
