Crazy Shilpa hopes to cheer Rajasthan Royals

Mumbai:Actress Shilpa Shetty, who is expecting her first child with husband Raj Kundra, says she is looking forward to cheer Rajasthan Royals team, though with doctor`s permission, in the fifth IPL season beginning next month.

"I would cheer and pray like everytime. Enthusiasm and excitement keeps increasing every year. But again it depends upon on my doctor….I hope my doctor gives me permission," Shilpa told reporters on Monday evening at an event. Even my XXL size jersey would come out soon," the actress said. Shilpa`s businessman husband Raj Kundra is the co-owner of the Rajasthan Royals team.

The actress stressed that the compact format is serious cricket even though it enjoys a high entertainment quotient. "It (IPL) is a deadly combo (cricket and entertainment). I don`t need to say how entertainment really works with making the whole format suitable in terms of reducing the overs. Some people are against it but those who enjoy IPL are proof enough that it works," she said.

"It is all about cricket at the end. No matter who comes and dances at the beginning or at the end," the 36-year-old actress said.
