The stadium was abuzz with energy, excitement and nervousness. Though we are all cricket buffs, we were there mainly for Shah Rukh. All of us know how passionately he loves his team, and how much he has emotionally invested in the it. As friends, we are thrilled to see him so happy.
All of us, the ‘filmi group’ went to Prabhudeva’s house after the match. He has bought a new place, and it was a housewarming party. I am not a party person, and left his place in three-four hours. The rest of the gang partied till the wee hours of dawn. The players had a separate party in the hotel.
The last two overs of the match were nerve-wracking. We were biting our nails off. But I think Shah Rukh was convinced throughout the match that victory would be his. It is not easy to beat the Chennai team on their home ground. All of us know that Dhoni and his boys are big game players, so no one thought that Kolkata could pull it off, especially after Gautam Gambhir’s early dismissal. But we’re overjoyed for SRK!
I am a huge fan of Gautam Gambhir. It is a delight to watch him play when he is in full form. I also like to see the way Yusuf Pathan and Jacques Kallis play. Jacques is a rock-solid cricketer and an asset for any team.
