They are masters of their game. And off the field, they are heartthrobs of many girls. Cricketers have always fascinated Bollywood babes. Check out which are the hot players these ladies have their eyes on.
Much before the Pakistani President praised his locks and magnificent stroke-playing skills; Mahendra Singh Dhoni had emerged as a sex symbol for many Indians including many sexy starlets.
Belonging to Jharkhand, Dhoni's hometown, curvaceous Tanushree Dutta is said to have been staking her claim on him for long. But she is not a lone bidder. If one believes the informers, Deepal Shaw has a silent crush on Mahendra Singh Dhoni that has often made her speak about him in different tunes.
On asking her, Deepal says, "It's true that I am a great fan of Mahendra Singh Dhoni and that's because his fearlessness is unmatchable. I have been playing cricket and football since childhood so I feel very close to the Indian cricket team. When I compare Dhoni with other players, I feel that his confidence is amazing and he is just awesome. I have never seen him playing under any pressure and in any jittery manner.
Whatever be the condition he comes and plays with full confidence. He always sets his eyes on the boundary so that he can send every ball there only."
On the other hand Tanushree though denied the allegations of any affair between the two, yet feels that Dhoni is a great friend. "Since me and Dhoni both belong to the same place Jharkhand I was linked to him and there were even some rumours about our marriage but that was all because of some confusion. I respect him very much as a player and I have great regard for him," explains Tanushree.
Even Irfaan Pathan's looks and attitude have become hot property for glam dolls. Says actress Rakshanda Khan, "Among Indian players I am fascinated by Irfaan Pathan. He looks just great. I would love to meet and spend time with him."
On the other hand motor-mouth Rakhi Sawant too has a crush on Pathan. "Man, he is just sexy. Once you look into his eyes, it becomes difficult to come out of that. I can pick any fight for him with anyone," quips the Mirchi gal.
