In cricket, there are many cricketers we respect or admire at some stage of life, but today we going to look at the crickets that are one of the most hated in 2024.
Most Hated cricketers in 2024
5. Pat Cummins
The man who outsmarted the whole Indian side at their own home to take away the world cup to Australia. Pat Cummins stated in the pre-match conference that there is nothing more satisfactory than making a whole crowd silent and made a few more statements that were not liked much by the Indian fan base, and unfortunately, the Indian fanbase couldn’t respond to those statements as India was completely outclassed in the final of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023, making him one of the most hated cricketers.
4. Suryakumar Yadav
The No. 1 T20 batter in the world is not much liked by a certain fan base, especially due to the way Suryakumar approached his batting style in the finals of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023. Surya was giving strikes to the tailenders during his whole time on the crease from the very first ball of the over, was not taking the responsibility to add runs to the board, and at the end, he lost his wicket quite easily without scoring a single boundary in the game. This is enough to make him one of the most hated cricketers in 2024.
3. Shakib Al Hassan
One of the greatest all-rounders of all time, he has always been more popular for controversies than his cricketing abilities. The incident occurred when Shakib demanded a timeout for Angelo Mathews in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 group stage game against Sri Lanka. The controversial part is that Angelo Mathews was on the pitch before time and accidentally broke his helmet strap, due to which he got back to the dugout to get a new helmet. The decision of the umpires was controversial, but this act by Shakib wasn’t well received by certain fanbases. This made Shakid at no.3 in the list of most hated cricketers in 2024.
2. Shoaib Malik
Only one cricketer on this list made it—not for any controversies on the field but in personal life. Shoaib Malik announced his third marriage a few days ago, which came as a surprise to some of his fans as his second wife, Sania Mirza, was an Indian, and she later clarified, giving a public statement that she and Shoaib have separated their ways. Seeing this news, some fanbases were really not liking it. This made Malik on the list of the most hated cricketers in 2024.
1. Travis Head
He’s the man who broke the hearts of Indian fans with his innings in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 finals, but that’s not the only reason for a certain fanbase to hate him. Post-winning the world cup, various pictures were released by the players on their social media with the ICC Cricket World Cup trophy, and one of those pictures really went viral, in which Travis Head kept both his feet on the world cup. It was not well received by some fans who didn’t like that display by the Australian players, while some fans were in favor of Head, saying he won it so he can do whatever he wants.
