Ayushmann has been a cricket enthusiast since he was a child and while everyone knows about his love for books, poetry and music, fans know very little about his love for cricket.
The talented actor, carries a cricket kit in his vanity van so that whenever the opportunity arises, he can play. Especially, when he is shooting an outdoor schedule – he enjoys playing cricket with the local crew rather than going back to the hotel. It also gives him the opportunity to get to know the crew better, understand their language and build a bond.
Talking about his love for the sport Ayushmann shares “I thoroughly enjoy every aspect of cricket be it watching or playing.”
He further adds “I have always had an affinity towards cricket. In school, I used to be a middle order batsman and have even played as a leg spinner at district level. Then when I started my career, I got the opportunity to host the extra innings T20 for one of the seasons of IPL and I thoroughly enjoyed doing that. Even now, whenever I get an opportunity to play cricket on- set, I prod everyone to participate. I can get really competitive when I am on the pitch.”
