India has an age old and deep love for cricket. Not just a high-spirited sport, it also acts as a tool to bring people together. And all of this is credited to the very talented Indian cricketers. Players like Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni, Yuvraj Singh and of course Sacin Tendulkar have stomped their authority with magnificent performance on the field. We,re here to find out what helps them do the same off the field, we're talking cars. So, what do the stars of Indian cricket drive. Click on the slides ahead to find out.
Virat Kohli has come to become one of the most influential youth icons in India. Besides his love for cricket, he also has a fierce liking for fast cars, something that is clearly evident in his collection. His garage has five Audis, one of which is the fastest ever production car by the German brand. He owns a R8 LMX Limited Edition, a bright yellow R8 V10 Plus, A8L W12 Quattro, S6 and a Q7. Besides these, Kohli also has a Toyota Fortuner and a Renault Duster.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni has had an inspiring story of working his way up to popularity based on his sheer talent. He too is an avid motoring enthusiast, and owns a collection of premium motorcycles, luxury cars and SUVs. He owns a Hummer, remember the picture when New Zealand players sat in a bus with a massive awe on their faces as Dhoni drove his Hummer alongside in Ranchi in 2016. Another powerful SUV in his collection is the GMC Sierra. Other cars include a Porsche 911, Audi Q7, Mahindra Scorpio, Toyota Corolla and a Mitsubishi Pajero. (Image: Indiancarsbikes)
Considered a God in the cricket world, Sachin Tendulkar has many a times expressed his fondness for sports cars. He owns a Nissan GTR that produces an massive 550 bhp and can do 0-100 kmph in just 2.9 seconds. From one God to another, Formula One champion Michael Schumacher gifted Tendulkar a 360 Modena Ferrari back in 2002, which he later sold in 2011. Sachin is also a brand ambassador for BMW in India, and owns a BMW M5, M6 Gran Coupe and last year he bough an i8, which he got custom painted to red.
Talk of Yuvraj Singh and you'll spontaneously think of six sixes in one over. Quite a proven all rounder, Yuvraj Singh's first choice of wheels in early days of career was a Honda City. Now, he owns something much, much more expensive and much more powerful - a Lamborghini Murceilago. Not just the Lambo, Yuvraj also has a Porsche 911, a BMW M5 and an Audi A5, which was a gift from Lalit Modi for his historic six sixes.
Harbhajan Singh, aka the Turbanator, is an enthusiast of big and powerful SUVs. Like Dhoni, Harbhajan owns a Hummer with 242 bhp of power from it 3.7 litre engine, a Mercedes Benz GL Class and a Ford Endeavour. (Image: Cow net worth)
Karun Nair has had a customisation done on his red Ford Mustang. The licence plate's last three digits are 303, which happen to be his highest test score. Now, that's a neat way to glorify the achievement.
It was in September of 2017 when Virendra Sehwag posted a picture of him posing next to a brand new BMW 730 ld, thanking his friend and colleague Sachin Tendulkar for the lovely present. Sehwag and Sachin have been India’s long time opening pairs, and arguably one of the best in the world, and this quite seals the bond.
