“The non-cricket sportsperson that inspires me a lot is Cristiano Ronaldo. I have followed him since he joined Manchester United. You know it’s astonishing to see how someone can grow from being just a normal player to being the best in the world,” Karun Nair said.

“The hard work that he has put in to get to where he has, and the determination and the focus that he has… if you need to be the best in the world you need to have something different, different mentality. It is something that really inspires me everyday,” he added.

If he has become the best in the world that means he has done most things right and he is just a wonderful player.” Karun Nair added.

“He is such an inspiration for cricketers and all youngsters. To see what he has been able to do in the last 10 years is something astonishing and something that everyone wants to follow and get inspired by. Same with me.
