In India, where cricket is treated as a religion,almost every child dreams of becoming a cricketer. However, only a handful of the dreamers succeed in making their dream a reality. In this cricket-crazy nation, fans treat the players as demigods and dream of living their lives as the cricketers do. But only few know anything about the childhood days of these cricketers.
So here we are presenting to you some ‘never heard before’ stories of your favourite Indian players.
5. Yuvraj Singh:
He is definitely one of the biggest cricket star in the world but if his parents had allowed him to follow his dreams, we would have never watched him on the cricket field. The southpaw had revealed that as a child, he would play sports like football, tennis and skating. He is also a gold medalist skater in the Under-14 category. Fortunately for Indian cricket, Yuvraj’s father, Yograj Singh compelled his son to play cricket and the rest as they say is history.
