The poll initially had 16 Indian batting greats, with Sunil Gavaskar and Virat Kohli being the two others to have made it through to the ‘semi finals’. Gavaskar beat Kohli in the ‘third-place play-off’ by a narrow margin.

Speaking about Dravid and Tendulkar recently, their India teammate VVS Laxman had said Dravid had reached close to Tendulkar’s level with his ‘sheer hardwork’.
