Nita Ambani The Cricket Aficionado-xhero

Sports-and-Recreation This year Mumbai Indians had a great run at the Indian Premier League season three and some of the credit if not all goes to the teams co-owner Mrs. Nita Ambani. One of the most influential business women in the country, Nita is now a cricket aficionado with immense passion for the game and she has been educating herself on the nuances of the game since her journey with IPL began in 2008. In an interview to editor-in-chief of Indian Express, Shekhar Gupta, Ms. Ambani said that she is an obsessed mother now with all her time devoted to cricket. She admitted that IPL is like a dream run for her and this association has consumed all of her attention to the point that she ate, slept and breathed only cricket during the season. Her dedication certainly paid off in the splendid display of cricket-rionics during the IPL 3 finale. She has stood by as a pillar of support during the good and bad times that the team has been witness to. In 2008, Nita Ambani strengthened the Mumbai Indians team with a successful bid of seven players including Sanath Jayasuriya, Harbhajan Singh and Zaheer Khan. Before the onset of second season of Indian Premier League, Mrs. Ambani spoke to Hindustan Times and confessed that before venturing into IPL, her knowledge of cricket was very elementary and was restricted to few successful names of the cricket world. Initially she was involved only with designing of the jersey and the making of Mumbai Indians theme song but after a poor start in IPL 2009; she decided to accompany her team everywhere as per the schedule. Chairman, Dhirubhai Ambani International School and co-owner of Mumbai Indians, Nita Ambani spearheaded the smartest strategy by making the bid for the most sought after player of IPL 3, Kieron Pollard. The constant travelling with the team to different locations also brought her closer to the team and helped empower the team with more confidence. In this years IPL, Nita Ambani started out by bidding for a knockout of a team, holding up with them through all times and cheering them on in every single match the team played. According to the team and the management, Nita is a lucky mascot for them and her presence in almost every match boosts their morale. On being asked about the disappointment after losing the finals, Nita said, I had said in my interview just before the finals that may the best team win. And in sports, I think, its not just about winning but also about handling losses. And thats what I have learnt living with these boys for the last several weeks. Surely I was disappointed, but it is what you have gained in your journey of life that matters. And for me, cricket has been a big learning experience. According to her, IPL will get bigger and better in the seasons to come. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
