If you thought that cricketers idolised only cricketers, think again. India's opening batsman Gautam Gambhir says that his No 1 idol is Shahid Bhagat Singh.

He tells CS, β€œHe has and will always be my idol. Giving up your life for your country is the biggest thing an individual can do. In cricket, there are many stalwarts I look upto, it will be unfair to name any one.

In my personal life, I look up to my parents – they have given me constant support and encouragement. I strive to be like them when I have my own children.” And with Gautam often talking about Shahid Bhagat Singh on his social networking site, it seems this inspiration runs deep.
