In the hood of success, often we miss out on the qualifications of a celebrity. Such is the case in cricketers when we are so mesmerized by their performance on the field that we are the least curious about their background or education.
Let’s check all-time favorite cricketers and their qualifications.
Raised in a middle-class family, Virat has to struggle through many stereotypes and did not think of becoming a cricketer one day. He studied in Vishal Bhartiya Public School in Delhi and gradually shifted his interests in cricket. He shifted to Savior Convent in Pashchim Bihar and became a cricketer after school. He did not attend college thereafter.
The famous biopic on MS Dhoni has shred light on his life and struggles. Originally from Ranchi, he attended DAV public school and started to grow more focused on cricket. He didn’t even finish his graduation from St. Xavier College in Ranchi when he started struggling. In 2011, he became the captain of the Indian Cricket team and won the world cup.
Rohit Sharma’s father was a caretaker of a transport firm, while he stayed with his uncles and grandparents because his father could not provide for him. Rohit did not even finish school when he received a four-year scholarship and entered the international tournament as an off-spinner. He did not finish school after his success.
Shikhar started training since the age of 12 and once he finished school, didn’t put himself in college. He became a full-time cricketer since then.
Hardik was born to a middle-class family and was raised along Krunal. His father was quite optimistic about his sons’ cricket career and didn’t fail to compensate for their training. Hardik failed in the 9th standard and quit school thereafter. He has now emerged to be one of the best Indian cricketers the audience has ever seen.
