KKR players picked their favourite cricketers
Kolkata Knight Riders team is filled with star cricketers in the 10th season of Indian Premier League but every player idolises a player or two.
Kolkata Knight Riders’ players including Gautam Gambhir, Robin Uthappa, Shakib Al Hasan, Trent Boult and Chris Woakes picked their favourite players when Harsha Bhogle asked about their favourite cricketers on Cricbuzz’s Beyond the Boundary segment.
“For me, in spite of seeing the likes of AB and Virat right now the way he is playing, I don’t think anything can overcome that feeling of watching Paaji (Sachin Tendulkar) bat. The sweetness with which he times the ball, and there is a finesse in the way he bats. It just feels good in the heart,” said Robin Uthappa.
When Harsha Bhogle asked Gautam Gambhir to pick his favourite player from the current lot, Gambhir went to pick the South African star AB De Villiers.
Robin Uthappa picked Virat Kohli not only on the basis of how he has evolved as a batsman but also as an individual.
Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan named Virat Kohli as his favourite Indian player from the present generation but when it came to all time favourite Indian player, he choosed Rahul Dravid. Mohammad Rafique was Shakib Al Hasan’s favourite Bangladesh Player.
New Zealand speedstar Trent Boult chose South Africa speedstar Dale Steyn as the best current cricketer in the world. While Chris Woakes opted James Anderson as best current bowler, picked AB De Villiers as best current batsman.
