Your attention – TOP 5 cricket players from India of all time.
In India, there is no doubt who the main local cricket legend is. Sachin Tendulkar came to the game at the age of 16 and made a real breakthrough, becoming a legend not only locally, but also on a global scale. He was one of the best batsmen in the world of cricket and made over 35,000 runs throughout his career. His great career began in 1989, and already in the 90s, he was recognized as one of the best cricket players in the world.
The most important moment in his career came in 2011 when Sachin made a notable contribution to India’s victory at the home World Cup, which was held at the stadium in Mumbai. Tendulkar had more runs than any other player in that tournament and delivered a truly brilliant game to the delight of all Indians. Immediately after that tournament, he ended his distinguished career, which can serve as an example for many cricketers in India. His name will forever remain in the history of world cricket among the main legends in this sport.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni
MS Dhoni was appointed as the captain of the young Indian national team, which was formed in 2007 after experienced players refused to participate in the World Cup. It was the best chance for a young player to make a name for himself, who impressed everyone with his tactical skills and skill. Later, when India won the Twenty 20 Championship, Dhoni had already achieved legend status, and the 2015 World Cup showed why Mahendra was hailed as one of the smartest cricketers in Indian history.
In 2015, only the then-invincible Australians were able to stop India under the leadership of Captain Dhoni. Mahendra retired from the captaincy of the national team in 2017, remaining one of the greatest captains of the national team. His game has always inspired young players, as MS Dhoni himself showed himself for the first time at a young age, when he had to take responsibility for the decent performance of the national team at the World Cup.
Virat Kohli’s career is still developing and he is now enjoying the status of King of Indian Cricket. He was always true to the principles of the game and tried to break as many records as possible in order to honor the memory of his father, whom he lost in 2006. It was his father who played a major role in developing Virat’s talent, training with him every day. After the loss of his father, Kohli took cricket so seriously that he couldn’t stand missing a single game or practice and became a real cricket maniac, according to his mother.
His mentor in the Indian national team was MS Dhoni, who also made his international debut at a young age and understood exactly what kind of mentoring Kohli lacked. It is expected that the great captain of the national team passed on his armband and status to Virat and Kohli has been proudly fulfilling his role for many years. He became a true champion who never let the pressure and stress get the better of him. Kohli has broken and set many records as the captain of India in a short period of time.
Kapil Dev was one of the first cricket stars in India and one of the greatest Indian cricketers ever. However, if such legends as Gavaskar and Tendulkar are known primarily for their achievements and titles, Kapil Dev became famous for his attitude to the game.
It was under the leadership of Dev as captain that the Indian team won its first world title, forever changing the rules of the game – the recent outsider became a significant force in the world of cricket, and since 1983 India was no longer underestimated, and the interest in the game in the country rose to an unprecedented level. Kapil Dev revolutionized the world of cricket by raising the profile of the sport in India.
After retiring as a player, he worked as a coach and was involved in the emergence of many stars. Unfortunately, his career was cut short after allegations of match-fixing, but Kapil Dev still remains a cricket legend.
Sunil Gavaskar made a name for himself when he hit 774 runs in four Test games for an astounding 154.8 points. This moment made him a cricket legend. His game was based solely on pure technique and total concentration. He always correctly assessed the situation on the field and in his head, Sunil had a computer that was able to calculate the ideal length of the shot.
He was also the only player in Test history to score 100s in both innings 3 times. Since his retirement, he has served as ICC Match Referee, President (BCCI), and Chairman (ICC) and remains one of the greatest men in the history of Indian cricket and custodian of tradition.
