Cricketers and their love for football have been a never-ending story. Many cricketers including Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma have expressed their love towards certain footballers or football teams in the past. The football universe has been divided into two predominant halves– one cluster supporting Cristiano Ronaldo and the other support Lionel Messi.
Both Ronaldo and Messi have been proving their worth in club as well as international football for more than 10 years now. While Ronaldo is currently playing for Juventus, Messi has been a part of FC Barcelona since the start of his football journey.

On several occasions, many cricketers have joined the debate over who amongst the two footballers is the superior one.

Meanwhile, another Indian cricketer– Shreyas Iyer– has also voiced his opinion about the two football maestros.
