Glamorous Rakhi Sawant has been chosen as the Queen Cheerleader for the second season of the Indian Cricket League (ICL) that begins on October 10th. They will perform at every match. “Cheerleading is not just tamasha (mindless drama). It is a sport by itself,” said Rakhi. “Until now, it was the exclusive domain of the international cheerleading troupes. But, thanks to ICL, this country will now have an indigenous cheerleaders’ squad.” The squad consists of Ritika, Preeti, Jessica, Geeta, Richa, Sharvari, Jayshree and Sangeeta and each is likely to gain fame by the end of the season.
Shariq Patel of the ICL board said, “Cheerleaders have a significant role to play in the modern context of sports. The ICL Zeebras squad includes some extremely talented and graceful dancers. I am confident that this synergistic initiative between cricket and entertainment will formulate a completely new experience for sports fans of the country.”
“I can’t wait to don my Zeebra outfit and break into a jig every time Rohan (Gavaskar) or Raviraj (Patil) hits a six,” said Rakhi, who currently appears in stunning item numbers promoting the movie Horn Ok Pleassss, Krazzy 4, 1920, and will soon be seen in Muthirai – making her the Queen of Item Numbers too.
