Cricketers are more than just sportsmen, as they can influence people as well. Outside their job, they do endorse many brands. Virat Kohli, the captain of the Indian team charges INR 2 crore for a single Instagram post. This amount showcases his popularity in the nation.
Apart from Kohli, former Indian captain, MS Dhoni is also one of the richest cricketers. After winning multiple ICC Trophies, he became a household name in the nation. Cricketers are known to own luxurious items.
Here’s is a list of top Indian cricketers and the phones they use:
1. Yuvraj Singh: iPhone and Oppo
Yuvraj Singh will always be regarded as one of the finest all-rounders the nation has seen. He could bat high up the order and bowl economical overs. Although his game dipped later on in the mid-2010s, he had contributed immensely to Indian cricket. Yuvraj Singh used to bat at the prestigious number 4 position.
He was instrumental in India’s World Cup-winning campaign in 2011. Whenever the team was in a desperate situation, Yuvraj used to step up. During the game against Australia in the quarterfinal, he smashed a half-century to guide his team into the semi-final. Adding on, he bowled his full quota of 10 overs during that tournament.
In 2007, Yuvraj used to put up match-winning performances with the bat. He smashed six sixes in an over off Stuart Broad. Later on, in the semi-final, he scored a quick 70 from 30 balls. Talking about his interest in phones, Yuvraj owns the stylish iPhone and an Oppo phone. He was spotted using Oppo as one of his special phones.
