Sir Donald Bradman: Although Sir Bradman is old and history, the stories of his great talent and ability to milk the opposition single handedly is still fresh in the hearts and minds of the Cricket lovers! The great stories of his assault at his opposition, and his missed chance of having a batting average of 100, have been re lived many times over! Despite the under developed form of the game during his time he pursued his passion and claimed the throne of being the best ever!

His mere presence on the Cricket field creates nationwide sensation! He can be held responsible for making this Nation cricket crazy! It might take another decade to find another icon as influencing as the Little Master!
Brain Lara: This West Indian has always found great support in India! The Cricket Crazy nation likes to respect all batsmen equally! Not only was he a great batsman, he was also a great ambassador for the game! His 400 not out against England still stands as the highest individual score in a Test match!
Virender Sehwag: This flamboyant Najafgarh Cricket Star has had his share of failures yet has emerged as one of the most loved cricketers of the Country! His nonchalant ways with cricket and unconventional batting tactics make him the Youth’s most admired cricketer! His ability to turn the game’s fate on its head endows him with an element of surprise which is always a welcome among the Youth!
M.S. Dhoni: Who would have believed that a Jharkhand’s Goalie would become one of the most talked about cricketing talents in the World! His extreme ‘cool-headedness’ and destructive batting style, creates a perfect combination of sense and dissent! No wonder he claims an integral spot in the Youth’s choice of Icons!
