Cricketers are famous for their outstanding cricketing abilities, as fans remember some of them, with their faces being etched in memories forever. However, some cricketers are confusing as they happen to be a lookalike of someone from the sport/s or a celebrity.
Their sublime cricketing expertise deadens the fans when it comes to cricketers. Consequently, the faces of a few of them are etched in the memories forever.
However, it has happened when some fans had realised and pointed out that a few of the cricketers look like someone famous, who could be a fellow sportsperson or a celebrity. In the same light, we look at six such cricketers who have their select lookalikes.
Dale Steyn-Daniel Craig
Steyn is one of the deadliest South African pacers to have ever played the sport, while his killer looks also gave a severe indication of how fierce he is. His look somewhat resembles famous English actor Daniel Craig who is notably renowned for portraying James Bond.
Ablie Morkel-Matt Damon
Another South African with a Hollywood connection, as the former all-rounder is highly similar to that of famous American actor Matt Damon. While Morkel was recognised for being a decent fast bowler and his explosive batting, Damon is renowned for being the mastermind in the role he portrays in every move, especially from his Bourne series.
Graham Onions-Ryan Giggs
The former English bowling all-rounder did not have a long career with England. However, he is exceptionally successful in the County circuit. His performance and looks represent that of famous Welsh footballer Ryan Giggs, who could not lead his side to the FIFA World Cup but did have a legendary career playing at Manchester United.
Temba Bavuma-Patrice Evra
The South African limited-overs skipper and batsman, Temba Bavuma, has quite some records to his name and is one of the consistent performers for the side. Meanwhile, just like his performance, his looks also represent the like of famous former French defender Patrice Evra, who had a decent career at Manchester United and even captained both sides at a point.
Jonny Bairstow-The Undertaker
Don't be surprised as the English wicketkeeper-batsman is known for his deadly batting, especially as an opener in the shortest format. Speaking of deadly, his looks also represent that of a dangerous professional wrestler, the legendary Undertaker from World Wrestling Entertainment. Nicknamed The Dead Man, Undertaker was renowned for inflicting fear onto his opponents and was a prizefighter in the ring, having won multiple world championships.
Virat Kohli-Ahmed Shehzad
The Indian skipper needs no introduction, as he is the best batsman in the world. As for his looks, it seems like he has a long-lost brother in Pakistan in the form of prolific batsman Ahmed Shehzad. Although the Pakistani hasn't managed to rise the same ranks as Kohli, he plays a vital role for his national side.
