Shilpa Shetty learns spin bowling from Shane WarneWed, Apr 29, 2009 11:00 IST
The leggy lass took some lessons in leg spin from the Australian master. She also tried her hand at batting.
What do you do when you have some of the best cricketers of the times in your team? Well, you at least take a few cricketing tips. That’s what Shilpa Shetty , who owns a stake in the IPL team Rajasthan Royals, did recently.
She stepped on field to learnt bowling and batting from Shane Warne and Graeme Smith respectively. However, just a little bit of running between the wickets had the svelte actress huffing and puffing.
“It was a fun day... Graeme (Smith) taught me how to bat and Shane (Warne) taught me how to spin the ball! We played for a bit and after I ran four times between the wickets I was gasping for breath,” Shilpa wrote on her blog from Cape Town.
Shilpa added that having shared the field with cricketers made her realize how much effort they have to put in every game.
“Now I respect my cricketers more, wonder how they do it, handling all that pressure, gawd! We actors have it easier, at least we get retakes... anyway it's still a thankless job when they lose,” she mused.
Shilpa has been a great moral support for her team in the ongoing tournament. Though her team has lost some matches, the players are slowly coming into form and on Tuesday they snatched victory from Delhi Daredevils in a match that saw heroics from Yusuf Pathan again.
