Obsessed with cricket

You may not need to visit a cricket stadium or switch on the tube to catch your favourite cricketers any more.

All you need to do is queue up outside the world’s first ‘Cricket Mandir’ that will house idols of the world’s leading cricketers according to the Bhojpuri superstar, Manoj Tiwari, who will build the temple in Bihar.

Love for cricket comes naturally to Manoj Tiwari. How else could one explain his presence at the Amdar Chasak — a cricket tournament sponsored by his close buddy, Akhilesh Chaubey.

Tiwari and Chaubey were seen in close animated conversation all through the event.  Tiwari also belted out two songs for enthusiastic crowds at the venue, where he shared the dais with a beaming Akhilesh Chaubey.

Manoj even beat the dense fog of Varanasi and took time to zoom into a Mumbai suburb to be the chief guest at an event. Tiwari, who has played the Ranji Trophy, considers the Indian team captain, Dhoni, as one of his friends.
