Shilpa loves cricket: Bollywood actress and model Shilpa Shetty said in an interview that she don’t know much about cricket but she loves cricket and loves her team forgetting the fact that she has invested in team. She is co owner of Rajasthan Royals which plays in Indian Premier League and had won first season tournament as well. When she was asked about whether she will be cheering her team, she replied that she will be there with her team to watch them playing and she has kept her schedule free for them and would like to watch their games. She said that she has recently finished working with an Indo-Chinese movie and now will be doing something special after IPL. Team’s new winning note is home and away jersey and when she is asked about it she said that other teams are also making the changes so they also made the change. She told that she liked previous one but they want to move with other and if others are making change with time then they will do it as well.
Shilpa Shetty added value to Rajasthan Royals team: Rajasthan Royals had won first season tournament when Shilpa was not part of it and as she is co owner of team and her husband Raj Kundra is also co owner so they have added the value and have got better options to promote their team. In first season there was no person who can represent the team in this way as she is doing now and team had lost lot of PR in starting which they have gained now with Shilpa being one of the owners of the team. She said Rajasthan Royals is like her family now and she don’t interfere in their game and there are other experts to look after that and she has trust in them. She doesn’t interfere in selection of squad as well and leaves everything on the skipper and experts while her work is to give financial investment for the team with other owners of team. She said she trusts the skipper Shane Warne and she let him select players for the team which he wants.
Shilpa’s favorite players: She likes many players whether they are from her team or not. Among her favorite are Brendon McCullum who plays for Kolkata Knight Riders. She said she loved the confidence and patience of him the way he handled situations of his team and having always a smile of face. She like skipper of her team Shane Warne who never loses his temper while on the field and from Deccan Chargers she like Adam Gilchrist who made team win last season’s tournament and she said he is extremely kind, chivalrous and well spoken player. In Royal Challengers Bangalore she likes their captain Anil Kumble who is well known as Jumbo and from Chennai Super Kings M S Dhoni is his favorite player who rarely loses his temper while on field and among most eligible bachelor. From Mumbai Indians she likes Sachin Tendulkar on whom India can proud.
