Two things that are currently ruling the entertainment industry are the Indian Premier League and Game of Thrones. While the Indian T20 league is in its 12th edition, the famous drama series is telecasting its 8th season. Both have created massive buzz, especially in India.
This year, both have surfaced at similar times. It makes for an interesting read if we compare the IPL cricketers with the characters of GOT. Quite surprisingly, there are many similarities between the two.
Here are the IPL cricketers and their Game of Thrones Characters Equivalents
#1 Jon Snow – MS Dhoni
The main character of GOT – Jon Snow is extremely popular and so is MS Dhoni in the cricketing fraternity. What makes them similar is the amazing comebacks by both of them. While Jon came back to life after death when Melissandre gave her a new life. Dhoni too came back to lead Chennai Super Kings to the 3rd title after the franchise returned to the league after a 2-year suspension.
Jon broke the rules and let the wildlings north of the wall. As per the laws of the Knight’s Watch, he did the wrong thing but actually, it was a noble act. Dhoni also suffered because of the wrong deeds of someone else. But the comebacks of both were outstanding. Jon still remains the face of GOT and Dhoni, despite aging, is still the icon. Also, both are known leaders who have led their troops to victories.
