Virat Kohli

Tags:

Virat Kohli is a fearless, talented batsman. Even Sachin Tendulkar has compared him. Kohli has carved out a niche in Indian cricket with his firm bottom-hand grip and ability to smash balls landing on a particular area to any part of the ground without much risk. Kohli, known as the king of chases, is a hammered nail in all formats.

Kohli became famous after leading India’s 2008 World Cup Under-19 team to victory in Malaysia. He joined the Bangalore franchise in 2008 after being thrust into the lucrative Indian T20 League. Since 2012, he has been the team captain. Despite a poor first edition, his domestic form earned him an India ODI cap on the Sri Lanka tour.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni captained India from 2007 to 2016. India’s best captain and wicket-keeper is Dhoni. He debuted in ODIs in December 2004 and Tests a year later.

Dhoni led India to the highest ranking in all formats, including the No.1 Test ranking for 18 months starting December 2009, 50-over World Cup (2011), and World Twenty20 on his captaincy debut in 2007.

When Rahul Dravid retired in 2007, Dhoni was recognized for his leadership. He represented Chennai Super Kings in the IPL.

The biopic M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story was released in 2016. It beautifully depicted the Indian skipper’s struggle and was a box office hit.

Sachin Tendulkar

Sachin Tendulkar was the game’s greatest batsman, run-maker, and icon.

His batting was based on the purest principles: perfect balance, economy of movement, precision in stroke-making, and anticipation, which only genius batters have. He had so many skills that he could use any of them, even the upright, back-foot punch.

Tendulkar was flawless. He made runs in all conditions and around the wicket, off both feet.

He excelled against Australia, his era’s dominant team. His 19-year-old century at the WACA on a lightning-fast pitch is one of the best innings in that country. He received the ultimate compliment from the ultimate batter years later.
