2020 was quite a good year for actress Saiyami Kher. The Mirzya star gave back-to-back hits in Netflix’s Choked and Amazon Prime Video’s Breathe: Into The Shadows. Her performance in the two shows was praised by critics far and wide.
Saiyami Kher is also a huge fan of cricket and keeps sharing her views on the game on her social media accounts. Now, Filmfare reports that the actress is all set to write a book on Team India’s recent win against Australia.
Recently, India won the fourth and the final test of the series in Brisbane, Australia, with three wickets, clinching the series 2-1. The last time a visiting team came out triumphant from the Brisbane Cricket Ground was back in November 1988, when the mighty West Indian outfit, under the leadership of Viv Richards, thrashed Allan Border’s team by 9 wickets, according to news agency ANI. The Brisbane Cricket Ground, commonly known as the Gabba, is a major sports stadium in Brisbane, the capital of Queensland, Australia.
In an interview with Bombay Times, Saiyami Kher said: “I’m still reeling over this historic series win. As a cricket fan, it is the best comeback story that I have witnessed. From 36 all out, to barely finding 11 fit players, to a series win Down Under! What appealed to me the most about this win was the fact that this is your quintessential triumph of the underdog story. No one believed that this team could pull it off and they did, despite the odds. All of us can relate to it for a reason.”
“I am so excited and emotional that I want to capture all this in the book. It won’t be statistical, but a humane story,” she added.
According to reports, cricketers like Ajinkya Rahane, Rohit Sharma, Cheteshwar Pujara, Shardul Thakur, Mayank Agarwal, R Ashwin, Washington Sundar are set to be interviewed for the book.
