Former Australian Cricket Captain
A fantastic middle-order batsman and an equally agile fielder with one of the safest pair of hands, Steve Waugh was a highly successful former captain of Australian Cricket team. This living legend of Cricket has to his credit a dazzling record of being a part of two World Cup winning squads, eight victorious Ashes squads, and leading Australia in 15 of their world-record 16 consecutive Test victories.
This cricketing gem’s involvement in philanthropy is reflected by his global charity foundation--Steve Waugh Foundation (SWF) Global that works for the rehabilitation for leprosy-affected kids at a home called ‘Udayan’. PlayUp supports this cause.
Indian Right-handed Batsman
India's middle-order, right-handed batsman and occasional right-arm off break bowler, Rohit Sharma is an extremely talented cricketer. He is looked at by most cricket luminaries as a batting mainstay of Team India in the times to come. Known for his athletic fielding and super cool temperament, he was appointed as Vice-captain of the team for IPL season 2009.
His graceful stroke play and display of outstanding maturity for a young head got him sold for $2 million to the Mumbai Indians. Rohit Sharma has recently created buzz by stroking a magnificent unbeaten innings of 55 runs in Ranji Trophy 2011—2012.
