Raunakk Bhnder is all set for the Actors Cricket Bash and is looking forward for the tournament. The actor says that he has been preparing well and is sure his team will win.
Actors Cricket Bash is the newest cricket league. How do you feel being part of it as it is original cricket with actual cricket kit?
I am feeling really great that this cricket league known as Actors Cricket Bash has started. Many actors like playing cricket but because of their busy schedules, they are not able to play it. But I am glad that ACB is giving us a platform to play cricket. As a child, I really wanted to be a cricketer but somehow I became an actor. I still like playing cricket, so I am very excited about this league and playing with my colleagues takes my excitement to another level.
ACB will only have men as cricket players so will the competition streak be more?
Yes, the competition will be tough as we have amazing players playing in ACB. I am very excited about it.
What do you think of cricket which is religion in India
Yes, definitely cricket is like a religion in India and Sachin Tendulkar is the god of cricket. I don’t think there is any other sport played in India as much as cricket.
This year Cricket World Cup is also coming what are the chances of India this time?
There is 100% chance for India to win because there is no other team stronger than India. It will be MS Dhoni’s last World Cup so obviously, the team will give their blood and sweat to it. We have good batsmen, bowlers and wicketkeepers so I am confident that we will win this year.
How you are preparing for ACB?
I am practising bowling and batting. Other than that physical workout, diet is also very important. I am concentrating on that as well.
Who is your favourite cricketer and why?
My favourite cricketer is Sachin Tendulkar and MS Dhoni for sure as they have been very important players in the Indian cricket team. Sachin sir is called as the god of cricket. He has class and I love everything about him. No one would ever forget the way he used to play cricket. People from the current generation won’t be able to forget MS Dhoni as he has been an excellent captain.
What are your expectations from Actors Cricket Bash
I perform well and give my 100% and I am expecting that the team from which I will be playing should perform very well and win the finals.
