Fans and followers of the gentlemen’s game, on Saturday, sparked a debate over the greatest player in the history of the sport on social media. Since most of the cricketing tournaments, including the 14 edition of IPL and the 6th edition of PSL, fans decided to use the power of the internet to kickstart an interesting debate on Twitter.
To make this debate a trend, fans also decided to name the players who they think are ‘overrated’ or ‘underrated’. In fact, fans picked their ‘secretly liked’ and ‘G.O.A.T’ cricketers as well. Fans decided to give special mentions to several cricketing icons of past and present.
While most of them picked Indian skipper Virat Kohli as the GOAT of cricket, others picked legendary Indian captain MS Dhoni and ‘Master Blaster’ Sachin Tendulkar. Interestingly, AB de Villiers, who recently ruled out his return to the South African team, was also mentioned in several tweets along with legends like Sir Don Bradman and Sir Viv Richards.
