Mumbai: Cricketer Yuvraj Singh gave Ameesha Patel special tickets to the World Cup finals between India and Sri Lanka at Wankhede stadium.
With that one stroke, the all-rounder must've broken several hearts. That said, given the long line of B-Town beauties on Yuvi's arm, is Ameesha the latest maiden to be bowled over? It sure seems to be.
Ameesha confirms, "Yuvi is a good friend and he invited me." And if there was any doubt about her special friendship with the cricketer, the words of gushing praise give a clear indication.
"Yuvi bowled, fielded and batted superbly on Saturday.
When he almost got run out I screamed the loudest! Saif (Ali Khan) and Ranbir (Kapoor), who were in the same box, looked at me as if I was mad because I was making them so nervous."
The actress sat in the specially reserved ICC Hospitality Box near the pavilion says, "People kept asking me to quiet down as I was the most boisterous. I kept shouting for Yuvi to play stably."
She wanted to meet Yuvraj after the end of play, but the crowds were hysterical by then. "It took me three hours to get home," she says.
Ameesha was worried for other India players as well...
Gautam Gambhir: "We all wanted him to complete his 100 and all stood up and clapped when he got out as he played fabulously."
Sachin Tendulkar: "I find him too cute. When he got out, we all thought we had lost the match."
She shows love for the opposition as well...
Lasith Malinga: "I just love him. I'm dying to meet him and give him a hug and a kiss. I find him very interesting and unconventional."
