Hollywood superstar Hugh Jackman has revealed his favourite cricketer, having admitted to be a massive fan of the sport. The 55-year-old picked Rohit Sharma as his favourite Indian player, labelling him as a beast during the recently-concluded T20 World Cup 2024, hosted by the USA and West Indies.

Rohit's captaincy and batsmanship earned worldwide praise as he captained India to their 2nd T20 World Cup, breaking a 11-year drought for their ICC trophy drought. The 37-year-old's tally of 257 runs proved to be the 2nd highest in the tournament and marshalled his troops incredibly well.

In a video surfaced on the Marvel India on X, Hugh Jackman stated that he follows cricket massively and that Rohit Sharma is his favourite from India.

During the presentation ceremony at the Wankhede Stadium on Thursday, the 37-year-old said it's a massive relief to bring the trophy back home after a massive wait of 13 years.

"Bringing the World Cup to this country means the world to us. This is for the people who support and watch the game, and, along with all of us, for the last 11 years, they're the ones who've been wanting this trophy to come back. Finally it's here, and I'm very happy and relieved."
