Think cricketers can’t excel at the ‘beautiful game’? Here’s a list of cricketers who I think can tear the myth in two and take the football world by storm.
Shahid Adridi: Think of the devil(and you get the picture). Quite honestly, footballers must have good balance, must be light footed and have a very gentle first touch. Why do I bring Afridi in the spotlight, is because of this:
DADA: For display of hairy chest after scoring an injury time winner, or maybe not!
Dale Steyn: His quick feet will do the talking and if effort’s all you need, this guy will put it all in.
Suresh Raina: Nothing that a voluntary dive in front of cameras can’t fix. If reports are to be believed, he is said to be walking out of both Indian team and CSK to join Barcelona next season. Yuvraj singh must be shedding tears-of-joy somewhere.
Ross Taylor: Why? Because he is never off side. I’m telling you, Chicarito must take some lessons from him.
Kamran Akmal: What a natural goalkeeper he’d make. Oh wait…
Sreesanth: For his exquisite acting, for the melodrama, for getting slapped by opponents and then leaving the field crying like an infant, for the insanity he brings on the field. Excuse me, but football would be so incomplete without this lad.
