The recent win of India against Australia at the Border-Gavaskar trophy was historic. The team who won the match without its key leaders and the young Ajinkya Rahane making sure that our country takes home the cup, created a frenzy on social media. The match was totally amazing and now looks like it’s going to be turned into a book. Actress Saiyami Kher will turn author and write about this victorious match.
Talking about the match and her decision to write it down, Saiyami spoke to Bombay Times and 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.”
She’s too excited about the book and says she will add a humane story to it, “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.” It is said that cricketers like Ajinkya Rahane, Rohit Sharma, Cheteshwar Pujara, Shardul Thakur, Mayank Agarwal, R Ashwin, Washington Sundar will share their anecdotes for the book. Now this book will surely be a page-turner and something to watch out for. Can’t wait.
