5 cricketers and their kabaddi equivalents
In India, cricket is a religion and its stars are nothing short of superstars. They dominate the headlines and are the cynosure of every room they walk into. Although it is not the national sport, cricket is what the nation breathes. While the same isn't true of Kabaddi, it a sport that originated in India and one that is dominated by the country.
While India are the No.1 ranked ODI and Test side in the world right now, they are reigning Kabaddi world champions. The sport itself might be vastly different but stars from both sports share certain similarities.
Here are 5 cricketers and their kabaddi equivalents:
Rohit Kumar and Rohit Sharma
Aside from sharing their first names, the two Rohits have a lot of things in common. Both Rohit Kumar and Rohit Sharma are incredibly talented and have both shown just how good they can be for the national side.
Style and elegance is one major thing that both players have in common. While Sharma's cover drive and pull shot leaves fans wanting for more, Kumar's running hand touch not only leaves the audience short of words but also like the esurient bees, wanting more and more.
Rohit Kumar is the captain of the Bengaluru Bulls in the Pro Kabaddi League while Rohit Sharma is the captain of the Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League. They both lead by example and both have won their respective domestic tournaments as a player.
While Rohit Kumar won the title with Patna Pirates in season three, his first with the club, Rohit Sharma won it as a youngster for Deccan Chargers in 2009.
