Some of the best cricketers of our generation have had some memorable experiences as a ball-boy during matches. Sachin Tendulkar was famously a ball-boy during the 1987 World Cup, and he mentions how he was in awe of watching his heroes on the field.

The current Indian skipper, Virat Kohli has also mentioned how being a ball-boy at the Feroz Shah Kotla was one of the best experiences of his life.

And maybe the next superstar of Indian cricket will be watching the game on the boundary line, possessing dreams of one day striding out to represent India.
