Did You Know These Two Cricket Stars Are Chiefs Fans?

Kaizer Chiefs have fans across the globe, and they even have ardent fans who are cricketers. Can you guess which Proteas stars support the Glamour Boys?

Earlier this year, both Chiefs and Orlando Pirates were present at one of the Proteas' test matches, where Happy Jele got to swap shirts with Wayne Parnell.

"Parny" is known to be an ardent Bucs fan, but that hasn't stopped two of his teammates from supporting the gold and black half of Soweto, and they are Kagiso Rabada and Themba Bavuma.

The latter grew up a massive Chiefs fan and used to attend games regularly, while Rabada first grew attached to the colours at the age of five through his father.

These two cricketers aren't the only SA sportsmen who grew up fans of the prestigious club. In fact, Stormers and Springbok star Siya Kolisi is a Khosi, along with Pittsburgh Pirates rookie Gift Ngoepe.

It certainly is great to see local sport stars show their love for another team. Which other celebrities or athletes do you know of support Chiefs?
