Cricketers have long been idolised by millions for their skills—be it for their prowess with the bat, guile with the ball or electrifying reflexes on lush green outfields. Now, as if to repay all that love lavished on them, more and more cricketers are giving back to society. In the recent past, many Indian cricketers, both present and retired, have taken determined steps to bring about changes in lives of people from different strata of soc­iety. From underprivileged children and expectant mothers to security forces, these cricketers are making a difference with their contributions.
