The relationship between Bollywood and the cricket world has been very old. From the affair of cricketers to Bollywood queen, from settling down to the home, Bollywood stars have an affinity for this game. Akshay Kumar is also included in this list, who often reaches the stadium to watch cricket matches. Meanwhile, he has told the name of his favorite player.
Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar is a big fan of the Indian cricket team. This can be gauged from the fact that they go to the stadium to watch the match of Team India, to support them on foreign tours apart from India. During the T20 World Cup, the team was seen cheering in the T20 World Cup match between India and Pakistan in Dubai.
During that time many Bollywood actors including Katrina Kaif, Rohit Shetty, Urvashi Rautela were also enjoying the match in the stadium. At the same time, Akshay named the favorite player from the current Indian team, which does not have Rohit Sharma or Virat Kohli, but there are two strong players of the team who create fear from the opening inside the opposition team.
Talking to ‘Sports Tak’, Akshay Kumar said, “My favorite cricketers in today’s time are KL Rahul and Shikhar Dhawan.”
At the same time, when asked about the cricketers of the old era, Akshay took the name of BS Chandrashekhar. It is worth noting that Chandrashekhar has left an indelible mark in Indian cricket, who was known for his special kind of bowling. In a career of 16 years, Chandrasekhar took 242 wickets for Team India in 58 Tests. Chandrashekhar was part of the famous spin quartet in the Indian team along with Bishan Singh Bedi, Erapalli Prasanna and S Venkataraghavan. Chandrashekhar played cricket for Team India in the sixties and seventies. He was given the Padma Shri and Arjuna Award in 1972 for his contribution to cricket.
