It’s World Cup 2015 and all we can think of is #WeWon’tGiveItBack. The crowds are roaring; there is the classic wave happening in the Australian stadium, the teams are pumped up and the world in general is going crazy.
The boundaries and the sixes leave us all wanting for more. Among all this drama, we pick up 11 players who love style as much as they love cricket. They are setting the field on fire with their brilliant game and impeccable style.
1. Virat Kohli
He owns the bad boy look and rocks the street style with as much spunk as he does any semi-formal attire. Kohli is certainly our man.
2. Kevin Pieterson
Even though he isn’t playing this world cup season, he cannot be disregarded when it comes to style. Pieterson has everyone bowled over when it comes to dressing up.
3. Brendon McCullum
Be it the muscular built or the badass tattoos, he’ll give anyone a run for their money merely with his presence. New Zealand’s topnotch batsman is preferred by photographers for the most candid style shots.
4. Alastair Cook
Alastair Cook proves you don’t need to look raw and rugged to be a class sportsman. With his soft boy-next-door and well-groomed look, he is truly a ladies’ favourite.
5. Chris Gayle
Those dreadlocks require some serious maintenance. Pair them up with a well-toned tall, dark and handsome body and you have Chris Gayle, ladies and gentlemen.
6. James Anderson
A good boy gone bad, Anderson’s style statement lies in his tattoos that cover a large section of his well-sculpted upper torso. He is the ambassador for ink in more ways than one.
7. Mitchell Johnson
The well-famed Movember moustache that goes all the way down the left-hand fast bowler’s chin is just one part of his style persona. He is one cricketer who is truly comfortable in his skin.
8. Eoin Morgan
The young cricketer might remind you of a pop singer. One of our favourite parts about Morgan is the way he can rock black. A simple V-neck tee shirt is enough for him to pull off his charm.
9. Daniel Vettori
He’s been around for a while, and his style changed drastically a good five years ago when he ditched the thin metal silver- framed glasses for classic bold black ones and a military haircut.
10. Kane Williamson
He is known for his beard, the scanty-almost-not-there-but-still-there one. The cricketer nails the boyish stubble perfectly balancing the muscular bod.
11. Andre Russell
Ask anyone about the mohawk and they will all point to the West Indies fast bowler. No one carries the hairdo better than Russell and, we mean, no one.
