Indians love cricket and seeing our country do so well in the sport makes us all rise high with happiness. That’s the reason why there is so much love for the cricketers in our country. Leave aside our own cricketers, in fact, IPL has bought the entire cricket world so close that we even are a fan of a lot of foreign cricketers which is a good sportsmanship thing.
