Indian actress Sherlyn Chopra, who is always known for her bold moves, has once again wished Team India in a unique manner – by singing a rap – during the first semifinal match of the ICC World Cup between India and New Zealand which is being played at Manchester Trafford Cricket Ground in England.
Chopra, the first Indian woman to pose nude for the official Playboy magazine, uploaded a video on Twitter where she can also be seen praising Indian players like opener Rohit Sharma and fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah.
In the clip, she sings in Hindi: “Yeah, haa, 83 me pehli baar, 2011 me number 2, karenge jamke vaar, Kiwi ho ya Kangaroo, Hitman maare chati century, ukhare gilli Bumrah ke Yorker, aao jitaye Team India ko, hausle apne zara buland kar, Go Team India, get the World Cup, Humara hain World Cup, kya.” (Yes, first time in 1983, number 2 in 2011, we’ll attack aggressively. Doesn’t matter whether it’s Kiwi (New Zealand) or Kangaroo (Australia). Hitman (Rohit Sharma) will get his sixth ton, Jasprit Bumrah’s Yorkers will rattle stumps, let’s go and win it for Team India. Let’s raise our spirit, the World Cup is ours).
Here's the video:
This is not first time Chopra cheered for Team India. Earlier, ahead of India-Pakistan match on June 16, Chopra, on the occasion of Fathers’ Day, shared a bold picture of hers stating – when it comes to a match rivalry between India and Pakistan, India will always remain the father of Pakistan.
The notorious Manchester weather pushed the first semifinal to the reserve day after dominant Indian bowlers excelled yet again to restrict New Zealand to a sub-par 211 for five on Tuesday.
Rain forced players off the field after 46.1 overs and as per ICC's playing conditions, the game will resume on Wednesday from where it stopped. Despite half-centuries from skipper Kane Williamson (67 off 95 balls) and veteran Ross Taylor (67 not out off 85 balls), the Black Caps could not force the pace against tournament's best bowling attack.
By the time when the covers were off at 10pm IST, the outfield had too much water and there was no way match could have started. However, the day belonged to the Indian bowlers as skipper Virat Kohli found out that it was a good toss to lose.
