5 Indian legends who deserved a World Cup win
The biggest event in the game of cricket only happens once in 4 years, and it is every cricketer's dream to achieve that World Cup glory at least once in their career. Even the great Sachin Tendulkar had to wait for 22 years to attain an elusive World Cup win to his name.
There are plenty of budding Indian cricketers who take up cricket as their profession after watching their heroes lift the Cup. But the real challenge for a cricketer in India is to sustain himself for a long time as there are many who want a piece of the same cherry.
There are some legends who achieved everything in their careers playing for India but for the World Cup, which always seemed to have eluded them. Here are some of those who didn't win the Cup in their illustrious career.
Honorable Mention: VVS Laxman
VVS Laxman will be long remembered as one of the best middle order batsmen in the history of Indian cricket and as a part of the famous Fab 4 of the same. His strokeplay is immaculate and he is one of the greatest players in the 4th innings of a Test Match with a history of match-winning performances.
Laxman is one of the few players who has dominated the potent Australia pace attacks single-handedly. He has achieved many things in his career as a Test player but one thing he will look back with disappointment is his ODI career for India. Laxman has featured in 86 limited overs matches for India scoring 2338 runs but none in a World cup. He is one of the greatest Test match players who has not represented his nation in the mega event even once.
