All these moments are cherished by the fans because it provides eternal bliss to them. The magic woven by them enchants the audience and this feeling is similar to watching a superhero in the Marvel Universe.

Until now fans of Marvel comics have enjoyed the spectacle when Hulk smashed Abomination, Iron Man beat down Extremis, Dr. Strange outwitted Kaecilius and Avengers ripped apart Chitauri Army. Now it is time for one final chapter Avengers: Endgame and it is set to roll and followers of Cricket and Marvel Universe are already excited for one final hurrah.
So here are 5 current Indian cricketers who are similar to Avengers as many parallels can be drawn between them and the Marvel characters:
1. Virat Kohli – Iron Man
Right now the poster boy of cricketing world is none other than Virat Kohli as his passion has taken the game to a new level. One can easily relate Iron Man qualities with Kohli like he has different suits for different formats. Kohli loves to be in the control of the situation and never backs down even if the odds are stacked against him.
When he walks out to bat, he demolishes opposition bowling attacks and it is similar to Iron Man destroying the Chitauri Army.

Kohli loves to be in the limelight and always keeps the team’s interests ahead of his own and that’s why he can be called the Iron Man of Cricketing Universe.
