The Indian Cricket team is currently going through a ‘nightmare’ period. After the thrashing they received at the hands of the English, losing series 1-3, MS Dhoni’s men are up for a challenge now in the upcoming ODIs. The 2011 World Cup champions need a ‘miracle’ or some superpower strength to revive their numero uno status in the cricketing world.
But enough said, these cricketers are relatable as well! Thinking on the wild side, what if our Indian cricketers took up the ‘Which Justice League comic characters are you’ challenge?
Here’s the answer to those questions could have been –
MS Dhoni – Bruce Wayne/Batman
Both can relate with each other. In real life, MS Dhoni is stubborn and follows what his mind says and so does our comic star, Bruce Wayne aka Batman. The Gotham Knight is too, difficult to mend down and makes sure nobody goes his way. Dhoni’s doggedness in the captaincy has saw Team India reach a new low but hope there’s a change coming soon!
Cheteshwar Pujara – Clark Kent/Superman
Though his defence was flawed in the recently concluded Test series in England, Cheteshwar Pujara still holds one of the best defences in the Indian side. And with that, Pujara can easily relate himself with none other than the ‘Man of Steel’, Superman. Do we need say more!
Virat Kohli – Barry Allen/Flash
With super speed and agility, DC Comics’ Flash also known as Barry Allen is one of the fastest man alive. But in real life, the one man who can match him (on the cricket field) is our Delhi puttar, Virat Kohli. The vice-captain is known to be amongst the fastest runners on the field and can easily outdo the opposition.
Ishant Sharma – Giant Man
Standing at 6 feet plus, Ishant Sharma was one of the star bowlers for the Indian team. The lanky bowler performed well, using the height and pace to deceive the batsman at ease. If Ishant could relate to one comic character, that would be the ‘Giant Man’. One of the largest comic characters around, this superhero is one unlikely to fall!
Ravindra Jadeja – Captain Marvel
His spin bowling and blistering batting always blows away the opposition team but Ravindra Jadeja is still a child at heart! The left-arm spinner was amidst a controversy involving James Anderson of which both the men were fined by the ICC. The same can be said of DC comic hero, Captain Marvel, who is a child but turns into a superhero when called into action. Even having super human strength, Captain Marvel behaves childishly and makes silly mistakes.
The above Indian cricketers can never achieve superhuman strength nor fly across seas but turning them into comic characters could be a fun outing for the fans!
