An inspiring leader and a explosive star

Between 2014 and 2015, Sehwag showcased his batting brilliance, accumulating a total of 660 runs across 30 matches. Notably, his standout performance included a remarkable knock of 122 runs against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the qualifier match of the 2014 season. Meanwhile, during the period from 2011 to 2013, Gilchrist made a significant impact for Punjab, scoring a total of 849 runs in 34 games.

Preity’s aloo paratha revelation

Another fan asked her if she still makes potato parathas for her team. In response, Preity said it happened only once, and that too in South Africa and after that, she didn’t make anything. Preity further wrote that she is a big foodie herself. She likes to eat her favorite food. But if that doesn’t happen, she starts cooking herself. The same thing happened then too. She just asked everyone. Everyone said yes, so she made parathas with the help of the chef.

No. It was once in South Africa. I’m a big foodie & I love cooking so when I couldn’t find what I wanted to eat I decided to cook❤️ Others asked for it so I make it for everyone with the help of the hotel chefs. https://t.co/PrQP8oMawG

Once, a similar incident occurred when she laid down a condition. In 2009, during the IPL season, the team didn’t like the parathas served at a hotel. So, she set a condition in front of the team. She said that if the team won the next match, she would make parathas for everyone. The team won the match, and Preity Zinta made parathas for everyone.
