This is possibly the most challenging question for a cricket enthusiast.
Of course, statistically, Tendulkar leaves all and everyone way behind. However, when comparing these four – and Sehwag, together they make ‘Fab Five’ – we all should focus on their contribution to the Indian cricket rather than looking at their numbers.
Tendulkar brought an all-round support to the team, blending his batting style however needed at the moment. Ganguly led the team with class and exceptional leadership skill, mapping wonderful winning strategies and bringing the entire team of the same platform.
Dravid and Laxman brought stability in the team. There were the real walls between India winning and losing. Whenever things looked blue, they pillared the situation with their responsible and elegant batting.
And then there is Sehwag, who knew only one way to bat. Much like Hulk, he would smash the ball outside the ground, providing the team the speed to score big and chase big.
These five names (sadly, you missed one) were the pillars of Indian cricket team for years. They redefined this sport for the generations to come. So as vague and upsetting as the answer may sound, there is no comparison between them.
