Brahma, Vishnu, Mahesh

Is it a coincidence that cricketing legends are born in a troika in this country?

Is there a significance to the number “three”?

It used to be Dravid-Tendulkar-Ganguly and I remember arguing for the supremacy of Ganguly like a religious zealot!

Is it now Rohit Sharma-Virat Kohli-Shikhar Dhawan?

Is it blasphemy to compare cricketers with Gods? http://www.cricketcountry.com/cricket-articles/Sachin-Tendulkar-retirement-Psychology-of-the-Little-Master-rsquo-s-fans/32051 tells me its absolutely normal if I am Indian.

Tendulkar keeps protesting he is not God! 

Hero worship of cricketers is nothing new. Read http://www.wisdenindia.com/cricket-blog/sunny-vishy-hero-worship/69295

and figured out there always has been a troika. Was it Gavaskar-Vishwanathan-Bedi or am I missing a name?

So the new world of cricket is coming into existence and the old Gods watch over its birth.A new generation of Gods for a new generation of believers!
