Describing a cricketer in 1 picture

Image result for unforgettable cricket moment
Akshaykumar Sirsalewala

A picture is worth 1000 words. Some pictures will forever be etched in our memory. Dhoni hitting the World Cup-winning six, Sehwag playing the upper cut, the stylish wristy flicks of VVS Laxman are all examples of sights every cricket fan has enjoyed.

What we have done is found out 1 picture, just 1 picture, which truly defined the cricketer. And trust me, summarizing 100 centuries in a single photo can be tough!

So excited to check out the collection? Here it begins...

Sourav Ganguly

Sourav Ganguly - The man who redefined aggression in Indian Cricket

If you are a cricket fan, there is one image which you might never ever forget - Sourav Ganguly removing his jersey in the Home of Cricket and waving it like a man possessed.

The Bengal Tiger, or more popularly known as the Prince of Kolkata, actually taught India how to win. His aggressive captaincy and in-your-face attitude won India several accolades. No wonder, even a decade after his retirement, he still remains a fan favorite!

Mahendra Singh Dhoni

That's how you do a split!

This picture personifies his fitness, his commitment and his knack of somehow crossing the finish line against all odds.

Even at the age of 37, he can give the younger players a run for their money! Best Finisher ever!

Suresh Raina

Suresh Raina top-edging a bouncer, again!

Had it not been for his short ball problems, Raina would have been an Indian middle order mainstay.

With around 8000 international runs and 5000 IPL runs, Suresh Raina would go down in history as a player who could have achieved much more if he had improved his game against the bouncers and short-pitched bowling.

Sachin Tendulkar

The God of Cricket. When the hopes of 1.2 billion people rest on your shoulders and you keep performing at the highest level year after year, you must be a super-human!!

Sachin is a prime example of how an athlete should behave on field as well as off it. Even a legend like Yuvraj Singh cannot stop himself from falling at his feet!

Rahul "THE WALL" Dravid

Which is greater? This WALL or the one in China?

"Ask him to walk on water for his team and he will ask you how many miles" - nothing describes Rahul Dravid better than this line.

He carried the burden of Indian cricket on his shoulders for almost 2 decades! His solid defense and unbreakable resolve led to many famous Indian victories. Cheers to the champion that he is.

AB De Villiers

Mr. 360 degrees in action!

Nothing from his playing style to his retirement announcement was conventional!! The world would have never known that batting could be done even this way, had it not been for AB De Villiers.

From obnoxious shots to those which were a pure treat to watch, AB played them all. He is, without doubt, one of the most entertaining, yet complete batsmen of the modern era.

Yuvraj Singh

Yuvi smoking the bowler over all the ground

Yuvraj Singh scarred the legacy of a baby-faced Stuart Broad forever by tearing into him and hitting 6 sixes in as many balls during the inaugural T20 WC. There is hardly anyone who makes six hitting look as easy as him.

He showed his true class in the 2011 WC when he won the Man of the Tournament Award, playing the role of the all-rounder to perfection.

Even after recovering from cancer, he came back into the Indian team and struck a career best of 150!!

A true champion. A true fighter.
