Bollywood and Cricket are worshipped in India. And when the two are combined, it’s just pure magic. Actress Tanya Abrol of Chak De India fame is playing for Lucknow Nawabs in Anand Mishra and Ekta Kapoor’s MTV Box Cricket League.
Tanya is a great lover of sports and says,
“I have been playing all kinds of sports except cricket in my childhood. I used to play table tennis, basket ball and shot put. During my school days, I used to participate in all kind of competitions.”
Speaking on the format of BCL Tanya says,
“BCL is a great format – entertainment -combined with sports. What I like the most is the participation of women in the game. Anybody can play here. That’s why this format is very entertaining. Last year I was in the Pune team and this year am with Lucknow Nawabs. This year we haven’t got much time for practice but last year’s practice sessions are coming handy.”
So who is your favourite cricketer?
“I used to like Saurav Ganguly‘s style a lot. And now I like MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli. Both of them are asset to Team India.”
Tanya feels she is good in both batting and bowling. But batting is little better.
Professionally Tanya is looking for something which can boost her creativity.
