Bangladesh women all-rounder Jahanara Alam reveals her favourite IPL team

For several years, Indian cricket has received a massive following and adulations from its neighbours, Bangladesh. Many players have also represented top-notch franchises in the Indian Premier League (IPL).

Bangladesh’s talismanic all-rounder had been an integral part of Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) before making a move to Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH).

Also, Mustafizur Rahman turned out to be a revelation in the IPL, donning the colors of SRH. He was later bagged by IPL giants Mumbai Indians (MI).

Other stars from Bangladesh who participated in the cash-rich league were Mohammad Ashraful, Abdur Razzak, Mehedi Hasan and Tamim Iqbal.

The Bangladesh women’s cricket team has had their own journey in international cricket. Speedster Jahanara Alam has been equally responsible for the Tigresses’ rise at the highest level.

Now, Alam has revealed her favourite out of the eight teams which participate in the lucrative tournament annually.

“KKR is my favourite IPL team. When Shakib Al Hasan bhai played for Sunrisers Hyderabad, I supported SRH as well. This time, there’s no Bangladesh cricketer in the IPL. I will support KKR itself. I can’t explain why I love KKR so much, but ever since the IPL started, I supported them,” Jahanara told Anandabazar.

Then, the pacer expressed her desire to play at the iconic Eden Garden, in Kolkata. Alam has picked 88 wickets in 108 international matches. She was also part of the IPL Women’s T20 Challenge last year.

“I haven’t had the privilege of playing at the Eden Gardens. Hopefully, one day I can play there and at the Lord’s. Most legends of the game have played at the venues and even I want to play there,” she added.

During the interview, the gorgeous cricketer also claimed about receiving movie offers. However, Alam ended up declining the offers for her love for cricket.

“I also had acting offers for two movies, but I declined them. I don’t wish to focus on anything else otherwise, I might get diverted and that is something I can’t let happen,” Alam concluded.

The 13th edition of Indian Premier League (IPL) is ready to get underway from September 19 in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). After the postponement of T20 World Cup 2020, the (BCCI) got the window they were looking for in order to organise the world’s biggest T20 tournament.

The IPL 2020 has been moved from the country primarily because of the rising coronavirus cases in India. Although, in the initial matches, fans might miss some top-quality players from Australia as their upcoming tour to England will clash with the IPL.

Speaking about the Aussies, power-striker Glenn Maxwell, who was purchased for a staggering amount of INR 10.75 Crore by Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) in the auctions, has come up with his ‘Best IPL XI’.

In conversation with veteran cricket commentator Harsha Bhogle, Maxwell revealed his ‘Best IPL XI’ during a chat show for Cricbuzz. Maxi, who featured himself in the team as well, started the proceedings by naming the openers in the form of David Warner and Virat Kohli.

Warner with 4706 runs to his name in the lucrative league is the highest run-getter amongst foreign players, while Kohli with 5412 runs under his belt is the overall leading run-scorer in IPL.

Kohli’s partner-in-crime in Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) AB de Villiers and spinal column of Chennai Super Kings (CSK) Suresh Raina, have been placed at No.3 and No.4 positions in the team. For the next spot, the Victorian all-rounder picked himself.

When it comes to all-rounders, then Maxwell went with Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) superstar Andre Russell, while the wicket-keeper’s slot has been occupied by none other than CSK skipper MS Dhoni. Maxwell, however, did not name the skipper for his side.

Interestingly, Maxwell picked all Indians in the bowling department. For the pacers, he went with Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshkumar Kumar and Mohit Sharma. Whereas, the 31-year-old picked Harbhajan Singh as his side’s lone spinner.

Bhuvneshwar has grabbed 133 wickets – sixth most by any bowler in the IPL. At the same time, Bumrah has earned 82 wickets in 77 matches. In comparison, Bhajji with 150 scalps is the third-highest wicket-taker in the history of IPL.

Here is Glenn Maxwell’s Best IPL XI:

David Warner, Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, Suresh Raina, Glenn Maxwell, Andre Russell, MS Dhoni, Harbhajan Singh, Mohit Sharma, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah.
