Team India have qualified for the semi finals of the World Cup 2019, with Rohit Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah and Virat Kohli leading India's charge. However, Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan feels that MS Dhoni is inspiring and heaped praise on the former skipper by calling him his most favourite player. 

“My mother and I, we like Mahendra Singh Dhoni. I feel he is a very good teacher, he is a great thinker. My mom will be very happy that I have taken his name, I think he is very inspiring, sorted and a planner,” Hrithik said.

The actor went on to reveal some cricketing memories from the England-India game in the 2011 World Cup at Chinnaswamy Stadium at Bengaluru. Chasing 339 for a win, Team India managed to make 338 and the game ended in a tie. 

“I remember I had planned to go and watch the game in the stadium but due to some last minute work I could not make it, but after finishing my work I watched the last over in my house with my family and we really enjoyed the great victory,” he mentioned.

He also spoke about an incident when he was shooting for 'Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham' and an England-India game was underway. Team India managed to win that game, much to the delight of everyone on the sets.

“During Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham, Shahrukh and I were in a car. We were hearing the commentary of a match, and co-incidence was, it was an India-England match. That match India had won, and we were ecstatic."

India next play Sri Lanka in a league game on Saturday before the semi-final.
