Cricketers can be one of the most superstitious people in the world. They have a lot to be anxious about, and they want something to assure them that everything will go their way. From sticking to their favorite gear to pocketing their lucky charms, cricket players have their own rituals and quirks. The following is a list of 5 most strange superstitions from cricketers:
In the 1983 World Cup quarterfinal against Zimbabwe, India was down at 17/5 when the Kapil Dev stood up and began to play with confidence. Man Singh, Team India’s manager, asked the players not to leave their seats at that point. Not even for a bathroom break. The Indian captain finished with a score of 175 not out, an innings of a lifetime. This is the most common superstition. Who can forget Sachin Tendulkar not allowing Virender Sehwag to go for a loo break in the 2011 World Cup finals?
