Cricket and Bollywood have always had a great connection, ever since Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi married Sharmila Tagore. Since there have been umpteen instances involving a cricketer and a Bollywood actress. Currently, there are murmurs of Indian skipper Virat Kohli is seeing Anushka Sharma, they have not officially made it public. But photo evidence proves the proximity of their relationship. Earlier, Indian cricket team who are hosting Australia at home for a limited overs series have already been beaten 4-1 in the One Day Internationals. Virat Kohli-led team India has also taken a 1-0 lead in the 3 T20I’s that are supposed to be played. The 1st T20I was played at Ranchi and India won it by 9 wickets.
But that is not what we are talking about. Instead, we are talking about a leading Bollywood actress Zareen Khan and her crush. You will be surprised to know that she does not have a crush on Virat Kohli or MS Dhoni, instead, it is a Pakistani former cricketer she drools over. The actress, who is a celebrity ambassador of the team Pakhtoons in the upcoming 10-overs-per-side T10 Cricket League, said the player she crushes on was a big reason in her supporting the franchise.
“I have been a fan of Afridi from the very first day he had played his match, I think he was 16 and scored 100 runs on 32 or 35 balls. I was an admirer of his hair and his looks,” she said.
“When (Pakhtoons franchise owner Habib Khan) came to me and told about this, I said ‘Please, let me play in this format’,” she added.
Meanwhile, T10 cricket that will be held in the United Arab Emirates will see big names like Shahid Afridi, Virender Sehwag and Kumar Sangakkara take part.
