Where you always interested in cricket?
Not really…my parents were huge cricket fans. Cricket was the only sport I never played. I was the sports captain of my school and played all the racquet games. What got me hooked to BCL was the fact that even the girls were playing. The idea of women taking to the field got me interested.
This year BCL is a lot bigger. What was the idea?
The whole idea was conceptualized at my place (smiles). Last year, it was on a smaller scale with friends playing with each other. However, we made it a property by getting support from a number of actors and members of the media.
