If you know Venkatesh Daggubati, then you will also know how big of a fan he is of Cricket. Venkatesh is a familiar face in the stadium crowd whenever India plays against competitors but Venkatesh is also an avid supporter of the Indian Premier League franchise Sunrisers Hyderabad. Venkatesh more often than not tries his best to attend all the matches SRH plays during the IPL and cheers steadfastly sporting SRH jerseys or caps.
However, Venkatesh, IPL and SRH share a connection which makes it possible for Venkatesh to play hypothetically for the SRH franchise. The person who connects Venkatesh, IPL and SRH is none other than the legendary and stylish Indian batsman V.V.S. Laxman. The connection goes back to the movie Vasantham which starred Venkatesh as Ashok, who plays for the Andhra Pradesh team in Ranji Trophy. Laxman can be seen offering some batting tips to Venkatesh during practice sessions in the movie.
The connection ties off in the present day where V.V.S. Laxman is the current batting coach for the SRH franchise in the IPL. Therefore if Venkatesh were to play for an IPL franchise, we think he would fit right into the SRH franchise considering Laxman had already coached him in Vasantham.
The 2020 edition of IPL is off to a flying start and is already halfway into the season. IPL is the time when people put on the colours of their favourite franchises and clash with each other and is also one of the major sporting events India and the world looks forward to every year.
