It is show time. The Indian Premier League season 3 begins today and we give all you girls out there (guys too!) a run down on the eye candies to look out for, if you get tired of following just the game.
Three women who follow IPL closely as their profession, take their pick of the ‘5 hottest’ from a bevy of cricketers set to amp up the sex appeal on the field.
Sonali Chander, Sports Editor, NDTV 24X7
“My list is based on personality rather than just looks. I pick Shane Warne, Shane Bond, MS Dhoni, Sachin Tendulkar and Adam Gilchrist. They all have a great sense of humour. And oh, Virender Sehwag, too. Nobody can beat Viru, especially with his recent hair transplant. Jo accha dikhta hai, woh bikta hai.”
Kadambari Murali Wade, Sports Editor, HT
“Overall personality is what makes a cricketer hot. I would say Shane Bond, David Hussey, Kumar Sangakkara, Chris Gayle and Graeme Smith are the hottest. Chris has a certain arrogance, which is sexy. He also has a fabulous body, although only from a distance (laughs). Also, even though Stephen Fleming is a coach, I think he’s hotter than a lot of players on the field.”

“Sachin Tendulkar tops my list of hottest cricketers. The rest would be MS Dhoni, Kevin Pietersen, Brett Lee and Virat Kohli. I’m sure teenage girls will love to watch Virat play.”
