Sangakkara, Flower inducted into ICC Hall of Fame

Sri Lanka's Kumar Sangakkara and Zimbabwe's Andy Flower were among 10 new inductees into the International Cricket Council's Hall of Fame announced on Sunday, reports AFP. Inductees were split into five eras, with Australia all-rounder Monty Noble and South Africa leg-spinner Aubrey Faulkner chosen from the years before World War One. West Indies all-rounder Learie Constantine, who later became the first black man to become a member of Britain's House of Lord's and Australia batsman Stan McCabe represented the inter-war period. Vinoo Mankad, arguably India's greatest all-rounder, and England batsman Ted Dexter were selected from post-Second World War players, with England fast bowler Bob Willis and West Indies opener Desmond Haynes chosen from cricketers who were among the first to feature in one-day internationals as well as Test matches.
