Cricket is not just a game in our country but is followed like a religion. Almost all of us are crazy about the game. More so, we are diehard fans of the cricket players and celebrate them as we celebrate Bollywood stars.
We are here to tell you about short stories related to the nicknames of the cricket players we celebrate for the great play!

The story for the name of our skipper is downright funny. His coach gave the name to him. Coach thought that Virat Kohli resembled a character from Champak comics – Cheeku Das. He had similar features like short hair and long ear.
2. Ajinkya Rahane – Jinx
The simple story behind this name is that while IPL was on, Shane Warne could not pronounce his name and hence, he started calling him Jink. Cute isn’t it?
