Cricket's longest format is the test match, and it is in this format that the game's fundamental essence can be located. It's the most exciting of all the formats and a true test of a cricketer's ability and temperament.

Sachin Tendulkar, on the other hand, became the face of Indian cricket in the 1990s, transforming sport into a religion in the country of a billion people.

Tendulkar changed the game with his jaw-dropping inventiveness and out-of-the-box Strokeplay.
There's a good chance the Master Blaster's records will never be broken. He has the most Test caps, the most runs scored in Test cricket, and the most hundreds in Test cricket.
In South African cricket, Jacques Kallis is a tremendous figure, and many commentators say he is the closest all-rounder to Wally Hammond and Sir Garfield Sobers. With the bat, ball, or in the slip cordon, Kallis, without a doubt the greatest Proteas cricketer of all time, was constantly in the centre of the action on the field.
As the fourth most-capped Test cricketer of all time, there was nothing Kallis couldn't achieve on the field. It wasn't easy for him to get his wicket, as he faced everything from furious pacers to technically adept spinners. His on-field presence was usually minimal, but his statistics spoke for themselves, demonstrating why he is considered one of the all-time greats.
Ricky Ponting is a former Australian cricket captain.
Ricky Thomas Ponting is Australia's most illustrious and charismatic cricketer, having led the team to victory more times than anybody else. Among captains who led their team in more than 30 Tests, his success percentage of 62.33 was second only to another Aussie legend, Steve Waugh. He also has the distinction of being the second-most capped cricketer in the history of the game.
His leadership talents were one of the main reasons for his inclusion on the list, but he has also done enough as a batter to earn a spot on an elite list. He was the Kangaroos' marathon man with the willow, since he could bat indefinitely and crush the opposition with his persistence.
