What if Wednesday | What if MS Dhoni got out for a duck in 2011 World Cup final

Ravi Shastri and Virat Kohli can claim whatever they want but in Indian cricket, a World Cup matters more than anything else, an inspirational story for the time immemorial. 'That' shot of MS Dhoni made him a cult hero or, dare I say, the greatest Indian captain of all-time.

What if Wednesday | What if Kapil Dev dropped Viv Richards' catch in 1983 World Cup final

What if Wednesday | What if Rohit Sharma had not twisted his ankle in 2010

Back in February 2010, 45 minutes was all that separated Rohit Sharma from making his Test debut for India against South Africa. Minutes before the toss, he twisted his ankle, meaning it was Wriddhiman Saha who instead took his place in the team. But what if Rohit hadn’t twisted his ankle that day?
