India Biography

Few historians or sociologists can explain the craze for this sport in India learned through the colonists. Cricket has definitely found its masses through the Indian population. As Ashis Nandy had said, cricket is an Indian game that was accidentally discovered by the British.

India played its first Test in 1932. Indian cricket had mostly been confined to individual brilliance of greats like Vijay Merchant, Vijay Hazare, and Vinoo Mankad till attained it adulthood in 1971 with the twin victories over England and West Indies at their den. The victories also coincided with the rise of Sunil Gavaskar, and towards the end of the decade he was joined by Kapil Dev; the latter led India to their maiden World Cup triumph in 1983.

With satellite television and Sachin Tendulkar ruling over Indian hearts the 1990s, the popularity of cricket in the country reached new heights. India became a world-class team as giants of the stature of Anil Kumble and Rahul Dravid appeared on the scenario.

In 2007 MS Dhoni led India to the inaugural ICC World Twenty20 title; four years later he ended India s 28-year quest for the World Cup. As things stand, the Indian Premier League plays a huge role in the financial market of world cricket. With a new star emerging in the form of Virat Kohli, one can only hope things get better from here.
