Nowadays, the cricketers can connect with their fans through different mediums. It has brought the audience closer to the game and it has also helped them follow their star’s daily activities. On the other hand, it has also helped the players increase their popularity in the sporting world.
Social media has been a boon for cricketers and their fans but sometimes it can turn into a vicious curse. The sent messages and uploaded posts can be easily misused. Even a small mistake from the cricketer’s side can cost their professional career. There have been instances when the players have paid a huge price for their casual approach in these applications or websites.
Here is the list of 5 players who were exposed by girls on social media
1) Shane Warne – “I’m in need of some naughty fun”

One of the characters who brought aura to the game is the greatest leg-spinner, Shane Warne. From achieving record-breaking feats to getting caught in the wrong acts the Australian cricketer has been a Gatsby of gentlemen’s game. The tweaker has scalped more than 1000 international wickets and his contributions to the game will be remembered forever.
For all the good work he has done with his craft, Warne has been a bad boy throughout his life. His temperament and habits have repeatedly tarnished his accomplishments. He has been involved in numerous controversies including s*x scandals. Especially Shane tends to send lewd messages to unknown females.
His sexting went to a new level when he started a conversation with a 24-year-old student in Belgravia, London. At first, Warne was casual in his approach but within a week he was having unusual chats with a girl who was half his age. Finally, he again made the mistake of sending an inappropriate message. Immediately the chat tab was shared by the girl and soon he was roasted on the social media.

The current Indian team is full of talented youngsters and the wrist-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal is right on top of that list. In the last couple of years, he has been an integral part of India ‘s white-ball sojourn. The Haryana cricketer is the first Indian bowler to scale a 5-wicket haul in T20Is and his constant rise has helped the side in building a quality bowling attack.
Chahal is an individual who always likes to experiment with his trade. Even in his life, he follows the suit which is clear from his posts on social media. He has a YouTube channel named “Chahal TV ” where he interacts with his teammates after their match-winning performances. That’s why he has a lot of followers in various age groups.
Due to his busy schedule, Chahal normally doesn’t reply to his fans expect this one time when he messaged a girl named Niluni on Instagram. When the 20-year-old posted a beautiful picture, the leggie found it attractive and he came up with a small caption. She was surprised to see his message and the screenshot was shared by her. Afterward, Chahal came up with a lame excuse and also apologized to her.

The Pakistan cricket team had an average outing in 2019 World Cup but one of the positives was youngster, Imam-ul-Haq’s batting exploits. The southpaw has already stroked 7 centuries in his short ODI career. He looks a good prospect for the Asian team and can be a future captaincy material like his uncle, Inzamam-ul-Haq.
At 23, Imam has shown good composure in his game and has brushed aside all the criticism he received for his family connections. He has been doing all the talking with his performances. However, Imam lacks discipline which is clear from his recent involvement in an online scandal.
He has been accused of dating several women at the same time. His leaked WhatsApp messages were objectionable and have been blamed for his rugged behavior towards women. Some of his private chats contained a high level of obscenity. Though Imam has admitted his mistakes it is a black mark in his career which will linger around for a long time.
4) Monty Panesar – “Love American girls”

The Brits have always welcomed cricketing talents with open hands and one such individual is Monty Panesar. The off-spinner was the hero when the English side conquered the Indian team on their home soil in 2012. His unusual action coupled with his joyous celebration was a treat for cricketing fans.
Unfortunately, he only got limited opportunities due to the presence of Graeme Swann in the side. He also missed a lot of games due to his temperamental issues. His off-field antics shortened his career drastically as nobody can forget the mess created by him after England’s disastrous 2013-14 Ashes.
In those days Panesar was going through a rough patch in his personal life. He was fresh from a divorce battle which prompted him to open his Tinder account. He met an American girl and chatted with her for some time. Then he made the mistake of inviting her to the hotel room after the team’s embarrassing loss. Within hours, she leaked the messages online and since then he has not represented England.

5) Mohammad Shami – “Good Afternoon”

At the moment the Indian team is blessed with a quality pace bowling attack including the Bengal speedster, Mohammad Shami. He is one of the few bowlers who can generate sheer pace even on dead pitches. Shami has the wicket-taking ability which makes him a lethal weapon across formats.
In the last year or so he has been an outstanding performer as his spells have been crucial for the team in overseas victories. In stark contrast, his personal life has been in turmoil as he was charged with ad*lt**y by his wife a year ago. She shared a lot of his WhatsApp chats with different women.
After a proper investigation, he was cleared of all charges. Now again the pacer has found himself in trouble after sending a message to one of his women followers on Instagram. The woman named Sophia was quick to share the screenshot and was questioning Shami’s intentions. It was a simple message which got the social media divided in their opinions but it surely created a lot of noise.
