The World Cup 2019 fever is raging on, and now more so than ever since India has made its place in the semi-finals! While we are bleeding blue (or saffron?) and hoping that we bring it home, there’s a lot of entertainment that we’re getting from off-field too! Yes, we’re talking about some of the ‘unique’ fans that caught the internet’s eye and became sensations overnight!

Cricket is followed religiously not just in India but also in our neighboring countries, be it Pakistan, Bangladesh, or Sri Lanka. Fans turn up in huge numbers to watch the teams play and cheer them on. And if there’s India and Pakistan, a bit of ‘extra’ is surely to be expected! We can’t do without the ‘aashirwad’ or the ‘painted bodies’, can we?

2. Arjan Singh: This cute, crying sardar kid got famous when he attended the 2018 Asia Cup.
