Indian Cricketing ...

December 16, 2015 17:05

Cricket in India is akin to a religion and the players that take part, are considered nothing less than being equal to Gods. And we all know how important it is to have the right chariot. Apart from Bollywood perhaps, cricketers are the only ones to dominate proceedings when talking of celebrity cars in India. Here’s a small list of cricketers who’ve gone on to head the national team through the years and fancy wheels they use:

Mahendra Singh Dhoni is more known for his love for two-wheels and has some of the most sought after motorcycles in the world parked in his stable. But not many know that his eclectic choices extend to four wheels as well. While sports cars tend to be dime-a-dozen in this clique, MSD as he is known drives around in a big, badass, American pickup – the GMC Sierra, striking an intimidating pose as he does. He’s also got a couple of BMW cars among others.

Virendra Sehwag is one of the most explosive batsmen the Indian cricket team has had, but when he moves around, he prefers to do so in luxurious style. Little surprise then to know that the Bentley Continental Flying Spur is his steed of choice.

Rahul Dravid aka The Wall made a reputation for himself as the one who would never give up. Once he got his eye in, the bowling team may might as well packed up and called it a match. His cars are just like him, with a lot of dependability going for them. Yes, that’s right, we’re talking about his BMW 5 Series luxury sedan. Besides it, he’s also acquired a Q5 for times when he’s got to venture into broken-road territory.

Kapil Dev – the star all-rounder captain who led the country to its famous 1983 World Cup win prefers something that’s more with the times when it comes to wheels these days. Practical and luxurious, the four-door Porsche Panamera is what he drives.

Sunil Gavaskar, another cricketing legend, uses a BMW 5 series on a regular basis. India’s most prolific run-scorer found his second calling as a match commentator and administrator who loves unearthing local talent from all parts of the country.

A common thread noticed when speaking about Indian cricketing captains through the years, is their love for BMW cars. They may have other wheels in their garage, but many prefer the dual-kidney grille over other marques.
