5 Overseas Cricketers Who Are Extremely Hated In India


In the last decade, cricket has become a global phenomenon. Cricket is no longer just an Indian sport. It is played by people all over the world and watched by people of many different nationalities. Fans of cricket in India are notoriously passionate, and they don’t take kindly to any players who have a go against the Men in Blue. The Indian fans hate the following 5 overseas cricketers:

Ricky Ponting

Ricky Ponting, one of the game’s all-time greats, has set many records and is the most successful skipper in ODI history. He has three ODI World Cup wins to his name, two as captain. He conquered the globe with an imperious Aussie side. But Punter was always despised by Indians for his on-field behavior, particularly against India.

When he wasn’t wearing a helmet and was struck by a bouncer by Javagal Srinath, he didn’t back down. He angrily ordered the bowler back to his run-up when Srinath wanted to know whether he was alright. He was always irritated by the umpire’s rulings that went against Australia. Who can forget the infamous 2007-08 series Down Under?
