It is a well-renowned fact that the Indian Premier League (IPL) is an amalgamation of the best in cricket and Bollywood. Celebrated personalities such as Preity Zinta, Shah Rukh Khan, Shilpa Shetty and Juhi Chawla have all been involved in the cash-rich league.
Preity Zinta has been associated with the Kings XI Punjab franchise for a number of years now, since its inception. The Baadshah of Bollywood Shahrukh Khan and Juhi Chawla are the co-owners of the Kolkata Knight Riders set-up. It has been a common sight for every edition of the IPL to see these celebs waving the flags of their respective teams.
But today, we are talking about beautiful actress Sonakshi Sinha, who also marked her presence during the IPL matches in last few editions.
In a recent interview with a Bollywood magazine, Sonakshi has revealed the name of her favourite cricketer and it’s not Virat Kohli. Surprised!
For the present generation, be it the celebrities – Kohli and MS Dhoni become the obvious choices but not for Sonakshi.
The Dabangg girl is a huge fan of left-handed batsman Suresh Raina. Sonakshi admitted that she loves to watch Raina’s batting whether he is playing for India or for any other team in the domestic tournament.
The 30-year-old actress also congratulated Raina on Twitter after the southpaw got a comeback call in the Indian cricket team for T20 international series against South Africa.
