The World No.3 ranked Sindhu has been one of the most cherished sports personalities in the country after her silver medal at Rio Olympics 2016.
Being an ardent supporter of Sunrisers, it was no surprise to see her in orange colours. However, the table-toppers could not topple Knight Riders as the visitors won the game convincingly by five wickets.
Speaking during the match, the premier badminton star Sindhu was queried about which cricketer she would partner in a doubles game.
“I would choose one of the best from the Indian team to be my doubles partner. I don’t know how all of them play! There is a lot you can learn from Dhoni and Kohli. There’s a lot you can learn from them even being in a different sport. The aggressiveness, the way they play, there’s lots to see from Dhoni and Kohli,” Sindhu said in an interaction shared on tournament’s official website IPLT20.com.
Sindhu also revealed that she always followed Sunrisers in her free time. She also credited there is no single stand out player in the team and the team as a whole deserves all the credit for their success.
“SRH are doing really well and I hope they win this match too. When I’m in Hyderabad and have no matches, I do follow Sunrisers matches “No one in particular but whole team is doing really well,” ace shuttler PV Sindhu remarked.
Kolkata Qualify After SRH Win:
Despite being one of the best teams this season in Indian Premier League (IPL), Sunrisers are not having best of times going into playoffs. They have now lost three games in a row but would still qualify as the top-ranked side in the tournament.
However, their current form could be a problem for the side ahead of Qualifier 1 in Mumbai on May 22.
On the other hand, a resurgent Kolkata side has been the best team so far in the second half of the tournament. They have once again proved their worth with another astounding win over Sunrisers in Hyderabad.
The Dinesh Karthik-led side proved to be good across all three departments and they will be a side to look forward to in the upcoming playoff matches.
