Whenever we talk about unity and peace amidst International borders, we emphasize a lot on countries and their mutual relations. However, one fact that we underrate is sports. Through sports, people from all castes, creeds, religions and everything else together to bond well. The reason behind the same is that come what may, the sport is more significant than any other personal agenda. We have often heard famous stories of International cricketers having great friends beyond their borders. Some of the most outstanding examples of cross-border friendship in cricket are Brian Lara-Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli-Chris Gayle, Kevin Pietersen-Yuvraj Singh, Rohit Sharma-Kieron Pollard, and MS Dhoni and DJ Bravo. Well, not just friendships, ladies and gentlemen, some of our favourite cricketers have also been blessed with beautiful partners beyond their National borders. As they say, love truly knows no boundaries, and well, some of our favourite cricketers have indeed led from the front to re-validate that statement again. So, here’s taking a quick look at a few such pairs.
