In a country like India people tend to consider the cricketers as gods. So, it is hardly a surprise that people end up worshipping them as gods. Even in the upcoming matches of the Indian cricket team, you may have noticed that the number of spectators is on the rise. So let us flip through some of the greatest Indian cricket players who have gone on to make a mark in the sporting world. The list is as follows:
He was a left-handed middle-order batsman and went on to bowl left-hand spin. Having made his international one-day debut in 2000 he went on to make his debut in test cricket in 2003. All the cricket buffs will not forget the sixes he hit off Stuart Broad in the 2007 ICC World Cup. Even his contribution to the ICC World Cup in 2011 was immense, and he was the man of the tournament. In the years 2007–2008, he was the vice-captain of the Indian cricket team. In the year 2012, he was conferred with the Arjuna award.
He was a middle-order batsman and bowled part-time off-spin. Having played for the Uttar Pradesh Ranji Trophy, he went on to represent the CSK franchise in the Indian Premier League for a considerable period of time. It was only in the last year that he officially retired from all forms of cricket. Among his achievements, he was the first player from India to score a century in all three formats of the game. Even on his test debut, he went on to score a century against Sri Lanka. He was also a part of the World Cup-winning team in 2011.
a cricketer who has a blunt view and would not shy away from any responsibility. A testimony to this fact is the ICC T 20 world cup of 2007 and ICC world cup 2011 he was the top scorer for India. Even in franchise cricket, he went on to assure that KKR went on to win the league. Currently, he is working as a mentor with the Lucknow Supergiants and is known for his outstanding brain and for taking stock of talent. In 2008, he was also conferred the Arjuna Award by the President of India.
an outstanding leg spinner who was known for his never-die attitude. He went on to take 619 test wickets, which were only behind Murali and Shane Warne in test cricket. For a brief period in 2008, he was the captain of the Indian cricket team. A team man with a polite attitude, he went on to command a lot of respect from his teammates. He is one of the three bowlers in test cricket to capture all 10 wickets in an innings. This was achieved in a test match against Pakistan in Delhi.
Currently, he is serving as the coach of the Indian cricket team in the absence of Rahul Dravid in New Zealand. Like Azhar, he too had a lazy elegance, and his leg-side shorts were a delight to the eyes. In the first year of the IPL, he was the captain of the Deccan Chargers team. In the year 2011, he was conferred with the Padma Shri award and he is known in cricketing circles as he had the ability to hit against the spin. One thing that sets him apart from the players of his generation is his ability to mint runs in Australia.
The former captain of the Indian cricket team is currently the head of the Hyderabad Cricket Association. In political circles, he was an active figure. For most of the 1990s, he was the captain of the Indian cricket team and went on to win the Arjuna Award in 1986. Being a cricketer, he was known for his graceful and elegant batting. But it was his fielding that captured the imagination of the masses. In fact, he was one of the best fielders during his time in Indian cricket. A few of the players will showcase the fact that he had the best wrist in the game of cricket.
He happens to be a former Indian cricketer and is currently a match referee. After the retirement of Kapil Dev, he did a great job with his fast bowling skills. Very rarely do you come across a pace bowler with speed, and he fit the bill on all counts. Not only was he a fine Indian bowler, but he captured 300 odd wickets in one-day cricket, which was an achievement in itself. He was part of the team for 4 world cups
The name might be a surprise to many, but he was one of the best fast bowlers during his era. He would have gone on to play a lot of tests, and his achievements would have been nothing short of a miracle, but he did have a bad time with the Indian Cricket Board. In the 1983 World Cup, he was responsible for making India win. In the semi-finals and finals, he was the man of the match, and the feat was only overtaken by Aravinda De Silva in the 1996 World Cup. He is the son of Lala Amarnath, who was the first captain of independent India.
A world cup winning player in 1983 and was the chairman of selectors when India won the world cup in 2011. He was an aggressive batsman, and it would be fair to say that the current T-20 format that we see is a notable extension of his style of play. If the ball was there to be hit, he would go for it. In the world cup final in 1983 against the West Indies cricket team he was the top scorer. In the year 1989 he was made the Indian captain. In fact he is one of the few players of having scored a half-century and taken 5 wickets in a cricket game.
