Star Indian cricket player Smriti Mandhana gave her fans a pleasant surprise on Friday afternoon when she announced that she would take part in a question and answer session on Twitter.

“Hey guys, let’s do a Q&A session!” she wrote. “We all are playing our part by staying home and practicing social distancing, so I thought this would be a good time to connect.”

She asked her followers to send her questions using the hashtag #AskSmriti, and in no time at all, the hashtag was trending at the top spot on Twitter.

One of the fans asked Smriti about her favourite IPL team. Recently, her teammate Harmanpreet Kaur was also asked the same question, and she had revealed Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) as her favourite IPL team.

But unlike Harmanpreet, Smriti did not name any of the eight IPL teams as her favourite. Instead of that, she revealed that Trailblazers of Women’s T20 Challenge (also known as Women’s IPL) is her favourite team. Smriti led the Trailblazers in the first two seasons of Women’s T20 Challenge.

In the inaugural edition of Women’s T20 Challenge, two teams – Supernovas and Trailblazers – played one match with the former winning the game by three wickets. Last year, it was a three-team tournament with Velocity being the new team. Supernovas beat Velocity by four wickets in the summit clash to retain their title.
