The Starting XI: Cricketing Instagrammers
In the age of celebrity, everyone (ok, maybe not EVERYone) wants to know what their favourite sports stars get up to away from the field, and cricket fans are no exception.
We trawled the Instagram archives to find some of the more interesting cricketers on the photo app. But to be fair, some are only worth following if you like pictures of their face… (cough-virat-cough)
