Look At How Your Favourite Cricketers Celebrate Diwali


The ‘Festival of Lights’ is here and with it, the celebrations and merry making that mark the occasion. We all celebrate Diwali in various ways such as visiting our relatives, making umpteen number of sweets and savouries and bursting crackers. All these while houses are bathed in the glow of countless lamps.

But, what about your favourite cricketers? How do they enjoy this festival? Ever wondered how Kohli celebrates Diwali? Did you always want to see Dhoni lighting crackers?

India is a nation that adores cricket and worships cricketers. The ‘Men in Blue’ and the Indian women’s team who bring so much joy to the country with their heroics in the field love to celebrate festivals like the rest of the country. On the cricket pitch, they may play with intensity and determination but off the field, they show they are extremely fun. This is evident by the images they post on their social media where they can be seen enjoying Diwali with their friends and loved ones.

On the auspicious occasion of Diwali, we bring you this ClipBook that looks at different cricketers celebrating Diwali.
