Cricket is generally associated with rough & tough individuals, on the pitch rivalry, scoring centuries, taking stunning catches, diving around the field to stop runs. However, these tough cricketers have a soft and mushy side to them. Most of our favorite cricketers are fond of animals. These cricketers not only love their animals but also encourage compassion towards animals and helping animals that are in misery and pain.
Here are the details of various Cricket stars and their pets:
1. Mahendra Singh Dhoni:
Dhoni has three dogs of Malinois breed and one mix breed dog which he has adopted from a shelter. During an interview Dhoni said “I have three dogs at home.
