India may have produced many a cricketing legend but only three have made it to the International Cricket Council's (ICC) Hall of Fame. Kapil Dev has become the latest member of the elite club which boasts of 59 others including compatriots B.S. Bedi and Sunil Gavaskar. On a day when he felt “honoured and happy”, India's only World Cup-winning captain was just counting his blessings. “Don't worry. Many more players from India will make it to the Hall of Fame. Sachin (Tendulkar), Rahul (Dravid) and Virender (Sehwag) will all make it. They are still playing,” he said.
