Life as a cricketer might look like it’s very easy on the outside as they seem to have a lot of fame, respect, and wealth. However, it requires great skill, determination, and dedication to become a cricketer as there are several difficulties that one needs to overcome.

And life after becoming a professional cricketer isn’t easy by any means as there will be critics and ill-wishers waiting to pounce on either poor performances on the field or something else off the field. In this day and age of social media, everything a player does on and off the field is observed by fans and even the slightest of errors attract negative attention.

Being a successful cricketer requires a lot of skill and hard work, but being a successful cricketer without having many haters is also an art. The way a player conducts himself on and off the field is very important.

On that note, here’s a look at 5 IPL players who are least hated by fans:

Bhuvneshwar Kumar is one of India’s best fast bowlers at present and has been a very reliable performer for both club and country over the last decade. His stats in the IPL are quite phenomenal as he has picked up 136 wickets in 121 games at a strike rate of 19.83.

The Sunrisers Hyderabad pacer has played 178 games for his country and he has had a very good career. He has generally conducted himself quite well on the field and rarely loses his composure. The 30-year-old comes across as a pretty calm person and doesn’t take anything for granted.

He hasn’t involved himself in any major off-field controversies as well and hence, the former RCB player has managed to keep himself away from negative attention.
