5 most loved foreign cricketers in India
They say that cricket, movies, and politics are the three most followed fields of interest in India. Indians eat, breathe, and sleep cricket. The madness for cricket can be seen on the streets, in the stadiums, and in front of TV screens. From Sunil Gavaskar to Kapil Dev, and from Sachin Tendulkar to Virat Kohli, they idolize cricketers.
Apart from the Indian cricket players, Indian fans love foreign players too. This madness has increased post the introduction of IPL, more than 10 years ago.
