Bengaluru, March 19: Bollywood actor Ranbir Kapoor donned the hat of a commentator on Thursday during the knockout game between India and Bangladesh at the ICC Cricket World Cup [India thrash Bangladesh to reach World Cup semi-final]
Kapoor, who is currently promoting his next movie Bombay Velvet, was seen in the commentary box along with former Pakistani fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar and Indian bowler Akash Chopra .
Kapoor said that Mahendra Singh Dhoni was his favourite cricketer and that his Bombay Velvet co-star Anushka Sharma played good cricket too. He said that Sharma was a good medium spinner and that they used to play cricket during their free time while shooting for the film.
However this is not the first time that an actor has done commentary for a cricket match. Last month Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan was seen making his debut in commentator during the India-Pakistan match.
India won the knockout game against Bangladesh today to seal a berth in the semi finals.
