This should not really come as a surprise for India’s batting talisman Virat Kohli topped the list of Times 50 Most Desirable Men of 2014. Virat, who ranked fourth in 2013 climbed the ladder, beating the likes of Bollywood superstar and Greek god Hrithik Roshan. Last year’s winner Mahesh Babu and a string of chocolate boys like Shahid Kapoor, Ranbir Kapoor and Ranveer Singh fell down the pecking order. Kohli has even left his fellow cricketers, including captain MS Dhoni far behind in terms of charm and popularity. Also Read: Virat Kohli, David Miller, Yuvraj Singh: Who is the most desirable bachelor in IPL 2015?Also Read - IPL 2021: Conceding Runs in Death Overs is Not The Problem, Said MI Coach Shane Bond

Rohit Sharma: Rank 21


The Mumbai Indians skipper is the new entrant in the desirable list. Rohit Sharma has a simple personality but possesses oodles of confidence. If his personality doesn’t interest you, pay attention to the fact that the right-handed batsman holds the record of highest individual ODI score. He has achieved the feat twice, mind you.

Yuvraj Singh: Rank 23


The evergreen personality to grace the list of desirable man is apna Yuvi. The stylish southpaw may not have been a part of Indian cricket team for the World Cup but that did not stop him from being the highest paid player in cash-rich Indian Premier League (IPL). The original poster boy continues to be a ladies man and one of the most eligible bachelors in the country.

Suresh Raina: Rank 29


Your value doubles up when you are taken. The saying fits in well for the newly married and latest entrant in the desirable list – Suresh Raina. The chief architect of the success of Chennai Super Kings in IPL, Raina has recently got hitched to childhood friend Priyanka Chaudhary in a grand wedding. His boyish charm and disarming smile continues to make ladies weak in their knees.
