Ever wondered what would happen if we had a squad of cricketers with a talent and hotness overload? These players definitely have the swag to show off their skills on the pitch, but moreover, these hot hot commodities are also firing up the fields with their good looks…
Here’s a list of players who made to our ‘Hottest Cricketers’ line-up for this season:
AB De Villiers
There’s something undeniably cool about South Africa’s Captain AB De Villiers, who is widely regarded as one of the best batsmen in the world. The charismatic and exceptionally good-looking cricketer dashed the hopes of many girls when he announced his marriage to long term girlfriend Danielle Swart.
Possibly one of India’s fittest and hottest batsmen, the Dehliite who is known for his spunky looks has not only stolen Bollywood beauty Anushka Sharma’s heart, but the hearts of many with his hazel eyes and ripped physique. ‘ViKo’ is currently Vice Captain for the Indian national team and recently launched his own youth fashion brand ‘WROGN’.
31-year-old stunner Dale Steyn is another product of South Africa’s finest… Apart from his youthful good looks he is known for his fiery on-field persona and a rare combination of extreme speed and controlled swing.
Brendon McCullum has managed over the years to create his image as a bona fide superstar. His raw talent caught the attention of coaches and talent scouts at a very young age, but it was his looks that garnered the attention of all the single ladies out there during this month’s electrifying World Cup.
The 33-year-old golden boy once known as ‘Pup’ has since matured into the Top Dawg of Australian cricket. Of course his game as a cricketer has matured to another level entirely, but his mesmerizing good looks are not to be ignored!
Well helloooo there… 25-year-old Finn started his professional career just five years ago, and has since become a permanent fixture in England’s line-up. Alongside his brilliant performance at his maiden ICC Cricket World Cup, Finn still manages to look pretty hot when bothered.
Pat Cummins’ debut in the Cricket World Cup tournament was definitely with a bang! The 21-year-old Australian bowls at speeds of up to 145 km/h causing absolute terror in the eyes of his opponents. The Aussie heartthrob was destined to be a star and boasts an impressive 100,000+ followers on Twitter.
One of the hottest commodities of all time, Shahid Afridi has become one of the most highly-decorated cricketers in the history of the sport. Serving his nation for more than decade, the Pakistani heartthrob dubbed ‘Boom Boom’ holds the record for the fastest one-day century. Ever since then, there was no looking back for this superstar who has been a delight to watch for millions of fans around the world.
This 30-year-old South African batsman from Cape Town takes hotness to another level. As soon as he steps onto the pitch hearts start beating faster… Jean-Paul is highly-regarded as an energetic fielder and a handy spin bowler. He is also tipped to be the man who will lead the Delhi Daredevils in this season’s hotly-anticipated IPL.
There is something about Sri Lankan Captain Angelo Mathews… Could be his ability to remain cool and calm during any high pressure situation? Could be his on-field charisma? Could be the fact that he’s accomplished so much at the tender young age of just 27, we don’t know for sure… But one thing we do know is that Angelo Mathews has some serious X-factor.
No list is complete without the mention of England Captain Eoin Morgan. The cricketer started his career at the tender young age of 15 representing Ireland, and it wasn’t until later that started playing for England. This hottie biscuit is one of only two players in history of the sport to have scored one-day international hundreds for two different countries.
