The T20 World cup fever is hailing high and everyone is looking forward to the semi final match between the Indian cricket team and West Indies team. After the last two breath-taking matches the excitement for the next has reached another level and one reason for this is the out-and-out involvement of B-town biggies, which was very visible in the India vs Bangladesh match on Wednesday, 23rd of March.
When Big B cheers Indian team at ICC
While India lost the toss Amitabh Bachchan won millions of hearts by singing the National Anthem before the match. He is known to be the busiest of all the celebrities but he managed to take time out and go for the match, and stayed and cheered the team till they won. The triumphant expression on his face while waving the flag after the last ball, added to the victory of the country.
When King Khan entered the commentary room
This is not all, the match was extra special for everyone witnessing because, for the very first time, the Badhshah of Bollywood went inside the commentary room to accompany Shoaib Akhtar and Kapil Dev. And undoubtedly the ball-by-ball commentary was so entertaining that it led to many switching from the English commentary to Hindi.

He had high praises for the Indian cricket team, with a special acknowledgement for Virat Kohli. During the conversation with his fellow commentators SRK also mentioned that Yuvraj could play Don and he would really suit the character and MS Dhoni can surely pull of the coach of the women’s hockey team in Chak De India. Wouldn’t we like that!
When the reel Dhoni came to meet the real Dhoni
While Big B was joined by Abhishek Bachchan and Aftaab Shivdasani, the real MS Dhoni was accompanied by Sushant Singh Rajput. Sushant, who will be seen portraying Captain Cool in his upcoming movie, the eponymously titled biopic, was there in a blue jersey to encourage the team. It is said that Dhoni himself has been closely involved in the making of the movie, which already has made everyone look forward to it.
Now, when the qualifying matches are gone and won, and knock-outs have arrived, Indian team has the full support from everyone (which is especially evident by the tickets for the semi-final match being sold out). Well, this is easy to understand – cricket flows in the blood of every Indian. #Bleedblue
All the best, boys! Keep making us proud!
