One of the most fascinating IPL 6 matches took place on Monday (April 22) night at MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.
It was an exciting clash between Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals, with CSK chasing and winning the high scoring match with a ball to spare!
And guess who cheered for CSK ? Our own ‘Chennai Ponnu’ Shruti Haasan was present on the ground and cheering for the home team in the company of Sakshi Dhoni.
An excited Shruti even corrected the TV anchor by saying that they should pronounce Tamil properly. Shruthi Tweeted – “On my way to watch CSK play! My first cricket match (apart from CCL)! So excited.. whistle podu! What fun energy in the stadium. My first match! What fun! And what a win:):)”
Meanwhile Taapsee and Arya who were shooting during the day for Vishnuvardhan’s untitled Ajith film dropped in to watch the match. They came to the stadium as guests of Shilpa Shetty’s husband Raj Kundra, owner of Rajasthan Royals.
Every six that Shane Watson of RR hit in his maiden IPL hundred was cheered loudly by Taapsee and Arya, who were sitting next to Raj Kundra.
Taapsee tweeted : “Saw my first ever cricket match in stadium. What a thrill, thanks to Raj Kundra for being an amazing host. Not an ardent cricket fan in a country where cricket and cinema are two religions, I chose cinema but amazing energy in the stadium. Adrenaline rush as we shouted whistle todu!! (break the whistle) .”
