As told to Abhishek Purohit

Graham Dilley 1959-2011

The star who might have been

Rob Steen

A republican prince

Ivo Tennant

The troubled, passionate cricketer from Nevis

Mar 6, 2011: The player with the long rap sheet and the man in the dressing-room make Morton seem almost like a character of the Jekyll and Hyde sort

Garth Wattley

England's steely lynchpin

Feb 11, 2011: Trevor Bailey may have been known for his stonewalling batting but it was as a match-winning bowler that he demanded attention

Alan Hill

Cheeky, chatty, charitable

Jul 22, 2010: To know Murali was to love him (and occasionally to wish he would be quiet)

Charlie Austin

'I could never plan against him'

Jul 20, 2010: Virender Sehwag takes his hat off to a bowler he was never quite able to figure out how to play comfortably

As told to Nagraj Gollapudi

Mahela Jayawardene

Stan McCabe

Fearless Stan

Shane Bond

The lionheart who never held back

David Leggat

An Australian sort of hero

Nov 15, 2009: Tendulkar's single-minded dedication to run-scoring is something they identify with Down Under

Christian Ryan

Man-child superstar

Nov 15, 2009: Tendulkar the cricketer seemingly emerged fully formed when he first picked up a bat. So too perhaps did Tendulkar the luminary

Rahul Bhattacharya

Virender Sehwag on Sachin Tendulkar

'Tendulkar controls the game'

Nov 15, 2009: What are the things that set the great man apart from mere mortals? The ability to read the game acutely, pick the ball early, dedication, discipline and more
