The segment will be broadcasted during the Super Sunday Double Header on the 6th of May 2018 at 2.30 p.m. exclusively on the Star Sports Network.
A few notable excerpts from the segment:
When asked about her views on what she thinks VIVO IPL brings to the table Alia Bhatt says: “VIVO IPL really does well to bring the country together to celebrate cricket. The tournament also does well to give youngsters the opportunity to showcase their talents by giving them a big opportunity”
Highlighting Rahul Dravid as the unsung hero of the Indian Cricket Team, Alia Bhatt says: “I think Rahul Dravid is an unsung hero of the Indian Cricket Team because he has had a stellar career with a modest retirement. Post-retirement too he is doing so much. He’s overseeing the U-19 team that has won the world cup, so I think he is the best unsung hero”
When asked about her opinion on an ideal women’s celebrity cricket team, Alia Bhatt says: “Anushka Sharma would make a good captain of the team with Kangana Ranaut as an excellent all-rounder and Katrina Kaif as the key fielder as she is extremely agile. I would name the team Chaan Mulgi” – which translates to ‘good girls’ in Marathi.
