Who is Deepika Padukone’s all-time favourite cricketer?

Deepika Padukone’s love for cricket is known to everyone. She has turned up to the stadium to watch international, as well as, IPL fixtures in India. Earlier, in an interview, she was asked about her all-time favourite Indian cricketer. To which, she said: “Rahul Dravid”.

The Bollywood actress also explained the reason behind the same. “My all-time favourite cricketer is Rahul Dravid. A lot of my idols are not what they have done in the sport and the game, but how they have conducted themselves outside. For me, he is somebody I have admired and looked up to, and he is from Bangalore.”

“How much we focus on our physical strength — our mental strength and mental endurance — is equally important, if not more. At times you feel your body is not keeping up with the mind. I think sometimes it’s the mind that takes over — and nurturing that is very important.

A young athlete will figure that along the way, but they should pay attention to that — the grit, courage, determination and spirit is important,” said Deepika Padukone, on Star Sports’ pre-show Nerolac Cricket Live.
