The Fabulous Five of Indian cricket – Sachin Tendulkar, Saurav Ganguly, Rahul Dravid, V.V.S Laxman and Anil Kumble will always be a part of our cricketing legends, inspiring people of all ages. Their nonpareil battling / bowling performance and conduct on-field as well as off-field are etched in every cricket lover’s mind.
But after the retirement of Sachin Tendulkar, the only active international player from this group, I felt like this was the end of Fab Five. Yes, I know that the sentence is misleading, as they are still active on other cricket related programs, including commentary, analysis and writing. But for me it is not the same as like watching them thwarting other teams or battling together to save the team from crushing defeats.
