You've seen your favourite sportstars in action on the cricketing field. But what do cricketers do when they want to let their hair down?

Aren’t you interested for instance, in knowing what Sachin does when he’s not busy creating records on the field? Or what is MSD up to when he is not flying ‘helicoptors’. Are Azhar’s dance moves as graceful as his cover drives? How good a swimmer is Yuvraj Singh? And what did Dada say to General Musharraf when the two first met?

If all these questions make you curious, then you’ll probably be interested to see how Shane Warne once enjoyed an auto-rickshaw ride in India and how Tendulkar played with Inzamam’s little son. Oh and you definitely won’t want to miss out on how Dilip Vengsarkar once played cricket in his underwear.

Do you ever wonder if your cricketing idols are party animals? Are they ‘gym-a-holics’? Are they ultra-religious? What is their family life like?

MSN decided to look at this rather unknown and unseen side of our favourite cricketers and came across some fascinating insights into their life off the field.

We found out how the Waugh twins like to dress alike. How Shoaib Akhtar and Shane Bond share a special bond, and how Matthew Hayden has a penchant for cooking. A true cricket fan is as interested in his idol’s personal life as his performance on the field.
