Rani MukherjeeDil Bole Hadippa, Rani Mukherjee, Shahid Kapoor, Preeti Thandi

Rani Mukherjee always plays her parts well - so much so that now she can pursue an alternate career in cricket! She is so convincing in her role as a cricketer and a man in disguise in Dil Bole Hadippa that you can’t help but wonder at her acting prowess. She has been recognized right from her very first blockbuster hit Kuch Kuch Hota Hai to more challenging roles like Black. May it be a bubbly character, an oppressed woman of circumstances (Laaga Chunri Mein Daag) or a disgruntled housewife (Saathiya, Chalte Chalte and Yuva) Mukherjee always creates an extremely plausible on screen chemistry with her co-actors.

But amidst all the glory and pomp, there have been moments of shame and dishonor; instances that the Indian cricket world would rather not remember. Interestingly some of the greatest and most talented cricketers in Indian cricket have actually chosen to take the high road to success only to realize, perhaps too late, that while it brings in monetary happiness, it did eventually did cost themtheir reputation, success and their position in Indian cricket.

CityMasala takes a look at some of the best Indian cricketers who chose to hit a six only to fall short and get caught at mid-wicket.
