IPL and its glory is just unimaginable to match not only for other cricketing tournaments but for some other sports also. IPL lures players from all across the world even the players from other sports dream of playing in IPL. The competition and intensity of IPL is such that not only spectators but also players crave for getting a single moment of the limelight provided by the marquee event.
But, Indian Premier League is not all about India, it gets its heartbeats from the spectators, its brains from Dhonis and Sharmas, its glitz from Pollards and Pandyas, its insanity from Lynns and Russels and all these things together produce world’s biggest cricket carnival i.e. Indian Premier League.
Now, legendary Indian footballer, Sunil Chhetri has revealed his desire to represent a franchise in the world’s largest T20 cricket league.
Recently, Chhetri conducted a Question-Answer session on Twitter where he gave answers to queries related to football and other topics. One of the fans asked him about the Indian Premier League (IPL) team, which he would like to play for if given a chance.
While replying to his tweet, Chhetri wrote, “I’m a Bangalore boy That should answer your question.” Chhetri, who represents Bengaluru FC in ISL, wishes to represent Royal Challengers Bangalore for the love and fan following he receives from the Bengaluru mass.
I'm a Bangalore boy 😉 That should answer your question. https://t.co/XF0OZxcfwR
