I just wondering. Is any cricket player involved in any other sports for his country rather than cricket. While they still playing international cricket. I knew Jonty Rhodes played hockey for South Africa but I am not sure he played international level.Thanks in Advance.

There are number of players.

The first one came to my mind is AB de Villiers.

Some of his achievements are listed below (Reference).

  • He was shortlisted for South Africa's junior national hockey team.
  • He made it to the shortlist of South Africa's junior national football team.
  • He was captain of South Africa's junior national rugby team.
  • He holds six South African school swimming records.
  • He holds the record in the 100m dash in South Africa's junior athletics.
  • He was a member of South Africa's junior Davis Cup tennis team.
  • He was South Africa's U-19 national badminton champion.
  • Has a golf handicap of scratch or zero, which means he is a player whose average score for a round of golf is par or better.

Here is a list of some Cricketers who excelled at other sports, you can google for more results. :)

  • But did he do that while playing international cricket or before that? – KharoBangdo Mar 23 '16 at 9:58
  • I believe all these achievements are before his first International Cricket match(for senior team) , I don't have exact timeline of his early sports life. – Arun Xavier Mar 23 '16 at 10:31
