To conclude we think, like every other brother-sister, cricketers also share great relationships with their sisters the difference being they get very less time together due to national duty or the IPL. Siblings have played a crucial role in many cricketer’s lives and have helped them in scaling new heights in their careers. ‘They say that no matter how old you become when you are with your siblings, you revert back to childhood.’ Happy Rakhi!
