With the domestic T20 cricket league in full swing, we asked our readers and anchors who they think are upping the mercury on field and off it. The top 10 lookers-performers who are a hit with the ladies emerged as Kevin Pietersen, Mitchell Johnson, Pat Cummins, Virat Kohli, Yuvraj Singh, Mitchell Starc, Shikhar Dhawan, Dale Steyn, Shaun Marsh and Shane Watson.
Leading the polls on social networking sites was blue-eyed boy, Virat Kohli, who is on a roll. “None other than Virat Kohli (is the hottest),” wrote our reader Neha Mishra on the HT City Facebook page, while another fan, Yukti Chauhan, shared, “Virat <3 always.” IPL TV presenter Archana Vijaya adds, “Yuvi is looking really hot in his red RCB shirt! It suits him. Shane Watson too.” She hopes the younger lot, too, gets its share of the limelight. “Sanju Samson is definitely one to look out for.”
