Gavaskar is one of the greatest opening batsmen of all time. His game was built around a near-perfect technique and enormous powers of concentration. He had virtually every stroke in the book but traded flair for the solidity his side needed more. Gavaskar's lasting legacy however, is not just the mountain of runs he scored for India. He earned respect for Indian cricket and he taught his team-mates the virtue of professionalism. The self-actualisation of Indian cricket began under him.
