Cristiano Ronaldo of Al Nassr was defeated on this ground by MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli!
According to a recent survey, IPL players MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli, and Sanju Samson have apparently surpassed Cristiano Ronaldo in the popularity of Asian sports.
Millions of Indian and Asian cricket fans are riveted to their televisions as the IPL 2023 is presently in full swing to watch the high-powered cricket action involving top players like MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, and more!
In the midst of this exciting cricket competition, it appears that the captains of the Chennai Super Kings (MS Dhoni), Royal Challengers Bangalore (Virat Kohli), and Rajasthan Royals (Sanju Samson) have surpassed Cristiano Ronaldo of Al Nassr in terms of popularity.
For those who are unaware, Cristiano Ronaldo just made his debut in Asian sports by joining the football team Al Nassr. Despite having a sizable international fan base, a recent sports poll found that when it comes to popularity in Asian sports, Indian cricket players are head and shoulders above Ronaldo.
In April 2023, MS Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings will be the most popular Asian sports team, according to a forecast recently released by the sports management firm Deportez and Fiananzas. Virat Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore will come in second.
The IPL and Indian cricket fever overtook Cristiano Ronaldo’s football team Al Nassr, which was in fourth place on the survey with the Sanju Samson-led Rajasthan Royals in third place. Mumbai Indians, led by Rohit Sharma, took fifth place.
The IPL team Chennai Super Kings is currently extremely popular due to rumours that this could be MS Dhoni’s final IPL season and the start of his retirement from all forms of the game. The IPL 2023 points standings currently have CSK in second place.
Cristiano Ronaldo, who recently moved from Manchester United to Al Nassr, appears to be in terrific shape and is living the high life in Saudi Arabia with his partner Georgina Rodriguez and his kids.
Al-Nassr is exerting every effort to put Al-Ittihad under pressure as the Saudi Pro League’s 2022–23 season draws to a close in the hopes that they might profit from any mistakes made by the league leaders. In a 2-0 victory over Al-Tai, Ronaldo scored his 13th Pro League goal of the year from the penalty spot.
Since Ronaldo’s surprising transfer to the club in January, Al-Nassr has fallen twice to Al-Ittihad, putting the team’s chances of winning the Pro League title for the first time since 2018-19 in jeopardy. Since moving to the Middle East, Ronaldo has occasionally found himself on the verge of exploding with rage, but he has maintained his competitive edge.
On a night when their title opponents drew with Al-Hilal, Anderson Talisca’s goal in the 80th minute sealed the victory.
With just three points and no goal differential separating the two teams vying for the championship, there are still three games left for both Al-Nassr and Al-Ittihad.
