Bopara, who scored 386 runs for Punjab Kings, went on to share a heartwarming anecdote.
“The standout moment apart from winning, and getting my highest score, was when Preity Zinta cooked parathas for me. She made them with her own hands. When she asked me what I wanted for breakfast, I mentioned aloo parathas, and she graciously made them herself. I am forever thankful for that gesture,” Bopara said.
Talking about cricket, Bopara singled-out Jasprit Bumrah for high praise, saying he is amongst the best T20 fast bowlers in the world, and is likely to be the greatest ever whenever he calls time on his career.
He also called on SRH to promote Heinrich Klassen up to no.3 spot based on his impressive form in the tournament so far.
Apart from Punjab Kings, Bopara also represented Sunrisers Hyderabad (in 2015) in his IPL career. He played 9 matches for the Orange Army.
