Former Indian cricket captain Sourav Ganguly on Saturday unveiled a large bronze statue of himself amidst milling crowds here in West Bengal's South Dinajpur district.

The eight-feet high statue has been installed at Bikash Maidan.

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.
