One of the greatest fictitious stories ever written, the “Harry Potter” series by JK Rowling won billions of hearts across the globe. It’s been many years since the series has ended, but people still reminisce it with teary eyes.

The first Harry Potter book was published back in 1997 and the rest, as they say, is history. The Warner Brothers film studio bought the rights to showcase this exceptional story on the silver screen and every film of the franchise got a whopping response.

Harry Potter is one of those films which connected emotionally with the fans and some incredible on-screen renditions by Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter), Emma Watson (Hermione Granger), Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley), Alan Rickman (Severus Snape) etc. made it even more special.

This fantasy fiction had a fair share of drama, emotion, unexpected twists and some heartbreaking moments which kept the fans on the edge of their seats for a long period of time. Despite being fictitious characters, the likes of Harry Potter, Albus Dumbledore, Severus Snape, Hermione Granger have taught us so many lessons of life. These are characters a child can look up to and take inspiration for his future.

Few individuals in the cricketing fraternity share some unique traits with these characters, which makes them comparable. Although there’s no connection between these worlds by any stretch of imagination, let’s take a look at few admirable qualities which cricketers and Harry Potter characters share in common.

#7 Ronald Weasley – Rohit Sharma


Two of the most loved personalities in their respective worlds, Ronald Weasley and Rohit Sharma have provided some sensational moments. Yet, Ron was a character who always remained the third best behind Hermione and Harry Potter. Played by Rupert Grint, Ron is portrayed as a helpful and loyal friend, who sometimes is not that useful to the main cause, which is to kill Voldemort.

We see in the 7th edition of the franchise “Deathly Hallows Part 1” where Ron gets manipulated easily by the creepy necklace (One of the Horcruxes) and ends up quarreling with his mates.

Yet, his love for Harry and Hermione helps him find a way through and he even plays a masterstroke in killing one of the seven Horcruxes. Ron had a fair share of good and embarrassing moments, but people love him as much as they love the other two. Something similar can be said about Rohit Sharma, who can single-handedly win games for the side on his day, but on occasions, he can be catastrophic.

That takes nothing away from how much people love him. He had his share of bad times in the fraternity, but as an opener for India in the limited overs, he was absolutely sensational in the last 3-4 years. Both Ron and Rohit are imperfect, accepted! But the way they find ways to cover them up is something which makes them very special.
