Cricket has always been one of the most popular and well-loved outdoor sports not just in India but in the world. But it is, and the whole community agrees, also the most physically and mentally exhausting game that has ever existed. For reference, the longest Cricket match recorded in history lasted 9 days with 680 overs bowled. This explains why every Cricket match is called the Test; because it certainly tests one’s strategy and character all throughout the game.
Indeed, in the Cricket world, only the best ones come out on top. And India has five of the best and most iconic cricketers in the globe. Get to know them below:
