What I love the most about blogging is that it gives me opportunity to meet achievers, celebrities from different walks of life. Be it fashion designers or Bollywood stars or Master Chefs, I have been fortunate to interview some very interesting personalities who we celebrate and who inspire us.

IPL Team Sunrisers Hyderabad@Launch of Patiala Sports Lounge/ Interview with Dale Steyn

In the ever so happening Sheikhland, excitement soared higher with the very popular Indian Premier League (IPL) cricket matches being played in this corner of the world this year. The UAE is hosting the first 20 matches of the tournament from April 16 to 30 at three venues — Shaikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi, Dubai International Cricket Stadium and Sharjah Cricket Stadium — while India holds a general election.

Cricket reckoned as religion in India, is also a much followed sport in countries like Pakistan, England etc. And thus IPL is being welcomed in here with a whole lot of enthusiasm by the Sheikhland – which has grown to be so cosmopolitan over the recent years with expats from all over the world.

I had the opportunity to meet and interview the team of ‘WHSmith Sunrisers Hyderabad’ recently on the launch of Patiala Sports Lounge in the very popular Patiala Restaurant in Souk Al Bahar.

The WHSmith SunRisers Hyderabad ( abbreviated as SRH) is an IPL team owned by Kalanithi Maran of the Sun TV channel network. With Shikhar Dhawan as the captain and Darren Sammy as the Deputy, the team has Srikanth and VVS Laxman as the mentors. David Warner, Dale Steyn, Ishant Sharma are some of the other well known members of this team. The team is being sponsored by WHSmith.

Presenting some of the pictures taken on the launch of the Patiala Sports Lounge in Dubai graced by the presence of SRH but before that there is a little interview that Amit Lahoti, my beloved husband and my Sports Correspondent for the night took with Dale Steyn, the South-African cricketer, renowned for his bowling skills. (smiles)

Some more interviews to follow soon in this space. Until then, enjoy the pictures –
