Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul exchange jerseys
After cricket, football is one of the most followed sports in India. The young boys are crazy for football and in many regions of the country, football has more fan following than cricket. The swag and the styles of football players are way unique. There are many football players who have a better look than models.
Often the fans of both the sports tend to mix up the two sports. Like in the movie MS Dhoni: The Untold Story, Dhoni was asked to keep the wickets just because he was a good goalkeeper in his football field. Like that, the celebrations of football styles are also seen on the cricket field. Chris Gayle once celebrated his IPL hundred in the style of Cristiano Ronaldo whereas KL Rahul has copied several football player styles as well.
