Cricket is like a religion in India and the cricketers are literally hero worshipped in nooks and corners of the country. The fame and adulation which the Indian cricketers enjoy is something extraordinary and not seen in any country. The national cricketers too try to give back some love shown to them by the supporters by connecting with their fans through social networking sites and clicking selfies and giving an autograph to their fans.

Before and after a match day a national cricketer is required to attain some of the commitments from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) by signing on stickers, match tickets and other items which the board distribute to the fans before, during and after the match. Despite loving their fans wholeheartedly and appreciating the fact on a number of times on social networking sites, not all cricketers really enjoy the process of signing hundreds of autographs after spending a hectic day on the field.

In a very recent video posted by BCCI on their official site Indian cricketers Ravichandran Ashwin, Jayant Yadav and Ajinkya Rahane is seen signing autographs for the BCCI stickers which are distributed among fans. They go on to reveal that how their signatures differ from different items and some of their horrible handwritings makes it very difficult to understand their names through their autographs.

While Jayant Yadav conceded that has never practised autographs ever in his life and makes circles around his name, Ashwin goes on to say how his poor hardworking made his mother not allowing him to sign on cheque books. India has been in the exceptional form of late and as long as their record-breaking spree continues it doesn’t matter how their autograph looks.

With less than 10 hours to go for the 1st Test between India and Australia to commence, we might be in for a crackerjack of a series. While former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly and Harbhajan Singh has predicted a 4-0 result in India’s favour, Aussie captain Steve Smith and former greats have rubbished their claims and have warned India to not take the Aussies lightly.
