Who is the game changer for the Indian cricket team? The answer may surprise you. It was a young, unsung hero who broke the Anglo-Australian duopoly at the ICC by becoming the first Indian president. The English press portrayed him as a snobbish buccaneer and compared him to Don King, but his impact on the game is undeniable.
Virat Kohli, a former captain of Pakistan, is one of the most successful players in the Indian cricket team. He is a dangerous batsman with a great record of scoring in T20Is and has proven himself to be a fittest player in the world. The captain of the Indian cricket team, who announced he will step down after the World Cup, has transformed the game for the Indian team and made them confident of winning outside their own country.
Sourav Ganguly is another example of an Indian cricket captain who turned the tide in the team’s favor. When the Chappel-Dada incident happened, Ganguly was forced to miss the next nine months of international cricket. However, he returned to the team in time to play against South Africa and score 51*. From there, he quickly established himself as a mainstay of the ODI scene, scoring more runs than MS or Dravid.
Kapil Dev Ramlal Nikhanj – The other Indian game changer is MS Dhoni. MS Dhoni was the first cricket captain to win all three major ICC trophies. His heroics in the 1983 Cricket World Cup in England helped India to win its first-ever trophy. He is now a part of Chennai Super Kings, an establishment based group in the Indian Premier League.
