Top Indian Players

In my post on China and India Top-20 players, I decided to assemble a gallery of photos for the top Indian players, just as I did for the top Chinese players a few months ago in Putting Faces to Names. The following composite image shows the Indian players left to right, top to bottom, in the same order as the top-20 list:-

  • Pendyala Harikrishna
  • Krishnan Sasikiran
  • Parimarjan Negi
  • Surya Shekhar Ganguly
  • Chanda Sandipan
  • Abhijeet Gupta

Both World Champion Viswanathan Anand and current women's world no.3 Humpy Koneru are missing from the composite, because their likenesses are well known to the general chess public.

Some of the Wikipedia photos are not particularly good, because the faces are partially hidden, but a Google image search helps there.
