When quizzed on cricket, Cumberbatch said: "Graham Gooch was my hero when growing up. I loved playing cricket and because I was a wicket keeper, I had my eye on Jack Russell."

Lee asked Cumberbatch for his views on who would best fit the role of Doctor Strange.

He said: "Sachin Tendulkar would do quite well in fitting the role as Doctor Strange as he is quite extraordinary."
