Update: The GOD of Indian cricket – Sachin Tendulkar is on Twitter – @sachin_rt

With IPL 2010 just around the corner, I thought of listing down the twitter profiles of all the cricketers (and those deeply associated with cricket). The idea was to make this an exhaustive and a complete list for easy reference. It was quite an overwhelming task when I set out, since I didn’t know from where to start. I decided to get some clues from Lalit Modi, the IPL chairman whom I have been following for a long time now.

I was right. I got to know the Twitter profiles of many cricketers through Lalit Modi’s timeline and I continued the process recursively and managed to get around 25 cricketers. Ridiculous isn’t it? Just 25 cricketers on Twitter! Worse still, many of those 25 twitter profiles are unverified and hence there is some possibility of them being fake, though I have tried my best to keep away the fake ones.

Anyway, here are the twitter profiles (constantly updated) of those few geeky cricketers in no particular order, but I have tried to put the verified and possibly genuine profiles on top
