Why just talk about modern greats when we have a whole set of spectacular batsmen in every era. Even though we watch a team of 11, there’s always one man who leaves a remarkable impact for generations to come. All the players have a different role to play but counted as the backbone of the team are the 1st down batsmen. These number 3 batsmen either make or break a team’s batting innings.
Today we enlist some of India’s Batting Legends of all time:
Talk about cricket and batting, and don’t mention “the God of Cricket”. I don’t think it’s possible! For starters, Sachin Tendulkar has got the best stats and figures, too high for even the world’s best batsmen to surpass, such as the total of 100 centuries. In his prime time, Sachin had to face extreme pacers and spinners, nonetheless, this pocket-size dynamo is one of the greatest names in the history of cricket.
Only true cricket fans can understand the essence of test cricket and its level of difficulty. Probably counted amongst one the noblest cricketers, Rahul Dravid was named “the wall” for his supreme defending techniques. No matter how hard the bowler tries, breaking Dravid’s patience, calmness and defense was a task for the opponents. Even now, Dravid contributes to Indian cricket by grooming the upcoming talents.
Gavaskar was admired for his batting technique against the fast Windies. It was that time of the cricketing world, where India was the under-dogs and had to face the then dominating teams such as Australia and the West Indies. Gavaskar in his career set the record for most runs and most centuries, which was later broken by Sachin. However, this world-class batsman is still renowned for his skills.
One of the modern greats, Virat Kohli is now a brand name. Not only the Indians but former cricketers from every country have praises for him. Probably the only cricketer in the current scenario who is in the race to break Sachin’s record of 49 centuries in ODI cricket. Carrying a batting average over 50 in all 3 formats of the game, Virat Kohli has certainly earned his position amongst the batting legends’ names.
India has seen a ravishing growth in sports, especially cricket, over the past few years. And it’s all because of the contributions of the entire team. But these 4 batsmen have particularly stood out amongst the other men in blue in their respective eras’.
