The spell of ever evolving fashion has charmed each community by its aura – be it the common mass, movie stars, artists or sports players.
Talking about the cricket stars and fashion makes one visualise our heroes – from yester-years to the present day. Needless to say that the cricket heartthrobs have always fascinated their aficionados by their game but we see the trend changing these days.

The role models of gen-next are redefining the appeal factor. Apart from learning the latest game techniques, enhancing the prowess and embracing a healthy lifestyle, the players have added a new feather in their Cricket Cap… and that is the “Style Statement”!
There was a time when glamour and cricket were considered to be two different accounts but now the genres seem to be so synonymous that it creates a whole lot of hoopla around in the social media.
The retro players concentrated predominantly over the game, looks being a subtle reflection of their personal style. However, the current day players find it significant to catch up with the latest fashion trends; be it hair, apparel, accessories, footwear or technology - the cricketers have donned it all. The focus is tremendously on good looks and great body!

Style is all about the way someone talks, walks, eats, speaks, writes, behaves, etc. Being an extremely essential element today, style has marked its foray from the conventional era to the modern day where our idols have transcended their line of business. With a much more polished personality and a refined lingo, they now host events, anchor shows, endorse brands, and promote print media; they act, sing and dance in TV commercials, and sometimes even in movies.
With the fever of Cricket World Cup catching upon in every four years, our doting champions make us crazy by their obsequious efforts to showcase their style. Undoubtedly, the gen-next players have made an effervescent impact on the paparazzi and the cricket buffs - they are absolutely trendy, geeky and more fashion-conscious than before… and they commit to continue staying in style!
