NEW YORK: Even though cricket is just another sport, it is much more than mere batting, bowling and fielding. In today’s generation, we judge cricketers not just on their ability to bat and bowl but also on their looks and glamour quotient.

Even in the by-gone years, we have come across some extremely handsome cricketers who created a sensation with their looks. It’s a fun exercise to look at them:


Shahid Afridi

“Boom Boom” Afridi might just be the hottest ever cricketer Pakistan has seen. The flamboyant all-rounder has been an integral part of the team for a decade and a half. He held the record for the fastest ODI century till very recently until it was broken by Corey Anderson in 2014.

Alastair Cook

England Test captain Alastair Cook is one of the most handsome cricketers around. The stylish opener has been a prolific run scorer in Tests and has been an integral part of the English team.

Ahmed Shehzad

Ahmed Shehzad

An aggressive right handed batsman, Shehzad is a darling among Pakistani girls due to his attractive looks; he is arguably the best looking Pakistani cricketer after Shahid Afridi. An immensely talented batsman, Shehzad hasn’t really realized his potential in international cricket and could be a much better cricketer than his records suggest, especially in ODIs.


Michael Clarke

The former Australian captain is one of the most charming faces in the cricketing fraternity. Making his debut in 2003, the stylish batsman took Australian cricket to great heights. Replacing Ricky Ponting as Australia’s captain, the right-handed batsman led his country to its fifth World Cup title in 2015, beating New Zealand in the final at Melbourne.

Clarke is also one of the richest cricketers in the world and was the brand ambassador of Gillette and Rawlings during his playing days,

Virat Kohli

The current Indian Test captain is one of the hottest cricketers around and is quite a sensation among girls of the modern generation. He has been a prolific run scorer for India across all formats and has been their mainstay in the middle order.

Kevin Pietersen

The South African-born England cricketer is one of the hottest hunks in the cricketing fraternity. He was a consistent run scorer for England before controversial issues led to his ouster from the team.


David Gower

One of the most elegant left-handed batsmen of all time, David Gower was a real charming face during his playing days. There is something inherently graceful about the way a left-hander plays and Gower was a perfect example of a batsman who made batting look ridiculously easy.


Imran Khan

The dashing Pakistani all-rounder turned politician was one of the most handsome cricketers around during his days and made his fans drool over his aura and charm. Imran Khan led Pakistan to a famous victory in the 1992 World Cup.


Brett Lee

One of the fastest bowlers of all time, Brett Lee made his debut for Australia in 2000. He is among the most charming cricketers of all time and is a heartthrob of fans across the world. Lee was a vital member of the Australia team during his playing days and forged a solid bowling partnership with Glenn McGrath and Jason Gillespie.

Very recently Lee made his acting debut in the Indo-Australian film “UnIndian” opposite Tannishtha Chatterjee. The film was mostly shot in Sydney and got a good response from the Indian box office after its release on 19 August 2016. The former fast bowler is also a part of the rock band ‘Six and Out’. He plays the bass guitar or acoustic guitar for the band.

James Anderson

James Anderson

Arguably the greatest fast bowler England has produced, James Anderson has been a revelation for the England team ever since making his debut. He is also one of the most attractive cricketers around and is known to be a popular figure among girls.


Shane Bond

The former Kiwi speedster was a nightmare to most batsmen during his prime and made the ball talk with his brisk pace and swing. Though injuries brought a premature end to his international career, Bond was the best Kiwi fast bowler in the post-Hadlee era. He was also one of the most hunky and stylish cricketers during his time and was a very popular figure among fans. – Samaa
