    Top 5 Indian cricketers of all-time

    With Dhoni winning every ODI tournament possible as skipper, and after trouncing Australia 4-0 at home in tests, his stature in Indian cricket is looking huge. People are touting him as a giant of the modern game.

    The question is, does it make him as big a cricketer as Gavaskar or Tendulkar? Where does he stand among the greatest TEST cricketers ever produced by India?

    Take a look at the poll attached to this thread. Please vote for as many names as you want but post your ranking in the thread; and explain your choices if you want.

    Yap, he took money to play well and play positively and make his team believe that they can win against the best teams, he took money for fielding well and maintaining good fitness at a time when our players were not too concerned about such things, he took money to win us the WC..

    Seriously man, you are just an attention seeker who is passing such a comment so that everyone takes notice of you.. What next? Ganguly fixed matches because you FEEL SO?
    Is this your homework Larry?

    hahahaha. i like that rant.

    but seriously, watch the 90 min documentary available on youtube made by tehelka and manoj prabhakar. each and everyone secretly filmed in that names kapil as a fixer. there seems to be universal agreement on that opinion. of course, he was my hero too when i was growing up. so it is difficult for me to say this but, sorry dude, i think he is tainted.

    Jeez, had never heard that about Kapil. Genuinely hoping it's not so. A great player.

    I had

    Kapil
    Gavaskar
    Tendulkar
    Dravid
    Kumble.

    Not sure what order - I suspect I'd put top spot between Kapil and Tendulkar. I realise my choices are very biased towards the modern era, but I confess there's a lot of excellent Indian cricketers I don't know enough about (other than that they were mighty fine players) from the earlier days, owing to my own lack of research about them.

    but, JBMAC, both played test cricket for England. Choosing them would open up the possibility that Ravi Bopara and Nasser Hussein were Indian too!!! If "Indian Born" is the criterion then I will take Denis Compton and Douglas Jardine any day. (And Julie Christie to play the hero's mother in our films)

    Though I know most of the CW guys give importance mostly to tests, the thread title actually is contrasting with the OP for a few of us who love ODIs and T20s too, especially as you put 'tests' in caps..
    Dhoni will figure in the all time top 5 for India but not in the all time test top 5 for India yet..
