Crush over a Hollywood celebrity is quite a common thing. Every individual – male or female – at some stage of their life, is attracted towards an international star. Even the popular Indian cricketers couldn’t avoid having a celebrity crush.
Several players, during the Question Answers sessions or in the rapid-fire rounds of interviews, have talked about their celebrity crushes in the Hollywood industry.
Right from the veterans of the game to the modern-day cricketers, the list is quite endless. Some of the Indian cricketers even admire more than one actress, changing with different periods of time. Right from wicketkeeper-batsman KL Rahul to limited-overs vice-captain Rohit Sharma, here are five top Indian cricketers who have spilt beans about their celebrity crushes from the Hollywood studios.
1.) KL Rahul: Scarlett Johansson
KL Rahul has impressed cricket pundits and fans across the world with his compact batting technique and work ethic since his debut in international cricket in December 2014. The Karnataka batsman has a crush on Hollywood actress and singer Scarlett Johansson; he revealed it in a fun conversation with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
