In cricket we often see some players being called by different names on the field and off the field. There are many interesting stories behind it.

For example, Rahul Dravid is known as ‘The Wall’, ‘Mr Trustworthy’ in the world of cricket. But, his teammates nicknamed him Jamie. Actually Dravid used to promote a jam. Since then, Dravid has been nicknamed Jamie by his teammates. Now let’s know the nick names of three such players and the interesting stories behind them..

Virat Kohli just started playing cricket. As always, he was aggressive and enthusiastic. But there was another reason for Virat’s excitement that day. Virat was spotted with a new hair style that day. With spiked hair, long ears, puffy face and a new haircut, Virat entered the field. Then coach Ajit Chaudhary said that Champak looked like a cheeky rabbit from a comic. That’s why Ajith called Virat by the name Cheekoo. Since then Virat’s name has become cheeky.

2. Rohit Sharma..

Rohit Sharma is one of those Indian players who, when he is in form, takes a big hit on his opponents. He dazzles with his strong, aggressive batting. It is known that Rohit Sharma is called by the name of Hitman. Now let’s see if it is the same.

After his second double century against Australia in 2013, Rohit received a lot of praise. Rohit Sharma also got a new name at the same time. That’s Hitman. Now many sports lovers call Rohit by this name.

3. Shikhar Dhawan..
