Meanwhile, Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan was spotted in the commentary box who along with former Indian cricketers Virender Sehwag and Aakash Chopra. Shah Rukh specially arrived to do Hindi commentary for a few over in the beginning of the game. Along with commentary, he shared several memories from his childhood days and said that he also was a cricketer. He used to be a wicketkeeper rather a poor batsman. Since all three – Sehwag, Aakash Chopra and Shah Rukh Khan – hail from Delhi, they discussed their cricketing memories related to that city.
Shah Rukh was pretty good in commentating and had a very good time doing so. Ahead of the tenth over and his exit from the commentary box, Virender Sehwag and Shah Rukh had a funny moment too. Since the Indian bowlers couldn’t get wicket till then, they both changed their seats, as a mark of superstition, so that Pakistan loses a wicket. That didn’t work though!
After almost a decade, India and Pakistan are facing each other in an ICC tournament. No doubt, this game will get uncountable views and will be an interesting game to watch on Sunday.
