"We play on the 23rd in Cape Town against the Knight Riders, that will be a difficult one, not the match but the emotion... it's terrible to play against a friend's [Shah Rukh Khan] team but all's fair in love and cricket, I guess," Shilpa posted on her blog on Wednesday from South Africa.

"Hope we have luck on our side this time... I've realised winning in this format [Twenty20] of the game has a lot to do with luck as well," she added.
