5 legends who redefined calmness in cricket before MS Dhoni
#4 Mark Waugh
No one in cricket history did more justice to the word 'flamboyance' than Mark Waugh. He was a brilliant and elegant stroke maker but off the field, he was a quiet and unassuming character. He was the exact opposite of a typical Aussie cricketer in all the ways. The Aussies have always been relentless, aggressive and they liked to get under the skin of the opposition while Mark barely mouthed a word to the players from the opposite camp.
His character earned him a lot of plaudits even from the British. But unlike Dravid, He was prone to lapses in concentration which resulted in him throwing away good starts. He was one of the greatest fielders of his era and his brilliant catching and direct hit skills changed the course of several matches. From 2014, He has traveled with the Australian team as a member of the selection committee. He was inducted into the Cricket Australia's Hall of Fame in 2014.Published 09 Nov 2018, 23:37 IST
