The macho Akshay Kumar is ecstatic that the Indian Cricket Team has managed to reach the Finals of the Cricket World Cup 2011. He is very thankful to the Men in Blue for getting India to this stage and feels that victory is not far behind.
Despite the fact that he is in the promotional phase of his latest film ‘Thank You’ he can’t seem to get his mind of Cricket. He says “Like every Indian, cricket is a religion for me. From the time I was a young boy, I have never missed a single opportunity to play the game — from gully cricket to playing on my porch. Even during shooting, if I have a half hour break, I pick up the bat and start a game in the studio compound with the cast and crew. You will find a cricket kit in the boot of my car always.”
Donning the astrologer’s hat Akki even predicts that due to the astrological conditions being similar in 1983 and 2011 a win is sure to happen. Also he predicts that India will win the toss, Bat first, make about 260 runs and emerge victorious. Let’s hope the ‘khiladi’ is right.
