India has seen some great cricketing legends in the recent past. The likes of Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly, VVS laxaman, Rahul Dravid, Anil Kumble, Harbhjan Singh, Yuvraj Singh, Zaheer Khan, Virender Sehwag, Gautuam Gambhir and MS Dhoni proved their worth by performing for the country. Their contribution to cricket has been immense. With the retirement of all Indian cricket legends apart from MS Dhoni from shorter version of cricket has to be applauded. The way they behaved on the field has to be appreciated and surely cricket will miss them.

Sachin Tendulkar is a role model for youngsters. He has majority of records in cricket. He began his cricketing life in 1989 and retired in 2013. He has scored runs in all formats of the game. Sachin Tendulkar is a great inspiration for young players who wanted to take cricket as their future. His capability to score runs anywhere in the world especially outside India makes him a special cricketer. He retired from all formats of game.

Apart from Tendulkar, there are Sourav Ganguly and Rahul Dravid who made debut at Lords were great cricketers. Rahul Dravid’s defense was solid and added stealth to his technique in tough conditions. Under his captaincy India won away series against England in 2007. He makes the bowler bowl to his strength and converts hundreds into big ones. Sourav Ganguly was special as a captain especially overseas. He was an aggressive captain. VVS laxaman another stylish batsman was special with his wrist work. He played some great innings for India to help the country win matches. Anil Kumble an excellent spin bowler won matches for India with his bowling.

Yuvraj Singh was an explosive batsman in shorter formats of the game. He was the man of series in the World Cup 2011. Virender Sehwag is an explosive batsmen, in test cricket he changed the style of batting. His batting allowed the other batsmen to play well. Zaheer Khan, Harbhajan and Gambhir have played a crucial role of bringing India into cricketing superpower. 

MS Dhoni who has announced his retirement from Test cricket today has done wonders for the country. Under his captaincy he has the World Cup T-20 in 2007, 50 over World Cup in 2011 and Champions Trophy 2013. His batting in One day internationals has been great as he is one of the best finishers in the World. He knows how to change gear and play well under pressure. I am sure the contribution of these Indian cricketing greats is huge.
