Indian cricket fraternity has witnessed a plethora of batsmen and bowlers carving out a reputation for themselves in international cricket. The ones who showcased their mettle quite consistently cemented their place in the Indian cricket team.
In the process, they went on to create and shatter records for the team. It is not that easy to deliver the goods with the bat and ball quite consistently and only all-rounders have the capability to produce such high-level performances.
