Sir Donald Bradman may have been the greatest batsman of all time, but his genius on the cricket pitch came eight decades too early for him to become an Instagram star.

As it is, current India captain Virat Kohli is tops on Instagram by a wide margin with almost 15 million followers. South Africa captain AB de Villiers comes in a distant third place behind Tendulkar.
