11. BISHAN SINGH BEDI
The former Indian Captain, who was a potent match winner during his playing days with his left arm slow bowling has always been a cynic of the happenings in modern day cricket. But sometimes, I reckon, you need such iron-hearted players in your side who loves to grab opportunities rather than wait for them. It’s almost as if we are asking Nasiruddin Shah to act in an out and out a commercial flick.
ODI Career: Batting- 10 Matches, 31 Runs, Avg.-6.20
Bowling- Wickets-7, Bowling Avg.- 48.57.
To conclude, it would be apt to draw an illustrious quote from Salman Rushdie which reads, ‘’Sometimes legends make reality, and become more useful than facts’’.
There are no two ways about it.
