Plenty of Indian cricketers, starting with former captain MS Dhoni, are known to love their superbikes. India and Royal Challengers Bangalore pacer Navdeep Saini seems to be in that list, as he shared a video of his love for the bikes with an interesting post.
“Accompany me on my bike to feel the fear," Saini captioned it.

Saini had recently shared a video on social media in which he can be seen ‘testing’ his Mahindra Thar on different terrains. Saini was a part of the Indian side for the tour of Australia but was injured. He missed the home Tests and ODIs against England. However, he was named in the T20I squad against the Three Lions, but was not included in the playing XI.
The 28-year-old is not part of the Team India’s squad for the inaugural ICC World Test Championship final against New Zealand and the following Test series against England. In the meantime, the pacer took to test his driving skills with his brand new SUV. “Yeah, I’m chilling on a dirt road,” the pacer wrote while sharing the video ofhim riding the SUV on Instagram. The video shows Saini’s journey from a farm, then across muddy water under a bridge. He then could be racing the SUV on a rough road and the video concludes showing the offroader getting washed.

Saini was one of the six cricketers who received Thar SUVs gifted by Anand Mahindra, Chairman of Mahindra Group after the series against Australia. Apart from Saini, Shardul Thakur, Washington Sundar, Mohammed Siraj, T Natarajan and Shubman Gill were the recipients of the car. India had won the Test series down under 2-1.
Meanwhile, Saini didn’t get many chances in the now-suspended Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021. He was part of Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and went wicketless in the only match he played against Chennai Super Kings (CSK).
