Cars have fancied millions across the globe and our cricketers are no exceptions. Over the years, automobiles, and cars specifically, have been in news with their relation to the game of cricket. Who can forget the craze for Audi, when India’s Ravi Shastri was awarded the car after his spectacular Man of the Series outing in the 1985 Benson and Hedges World Championship of cricket?
The current crop of Indian cricketers have their fixations for cars as well. Sachin Tendulkar’s love for every minute detail about four wheelers is well known, and the Master Blaster is even rumored to have time and again visited the BMW car factory. Indian skipper MS Dhoni’s love for four wheelers is another famous instance, as the skipper is very hands on with his gigantic yellow Hummer.
Several Indian cricketers have their own collection of fancy and lavish cars, which they openly flaunt. Below, is the list of cricketers, with their collection of cars and specifications about their desired possessions.
