India discard Irfan Pathan on Tuesday put up an interesting question before cricket fans. The 33-year-old took to Twitter and asked the reason behind the rise of Indian cricket. "Question for all the lovers of Indian cricket. What is the reason behind the rise of Indian cricket?," Pathan wrote on his Twitter handle.

To this, most of the cricket fans came up with their views but there were three names that found consensus among the majority of fans.

Fans credited former captains Sourav Ganguly, Mahendra Singh Dhoni and current skipper Virat Kohli for lifting the game of cricket.
