BANGALORE: After senior India cricketer Sachin Tendulkar enthralled the Mumbai Masters fans by turning up for star shuttler Lee Chong Wei’s match, it was the turn of another batting stalwart Rahul Dravid to root for his city franchise at Sree Kanteerava Stadium on Sunday.
Dravid’s presence could lift the morale of Banga Beats who have a huge task of winning their last two ties with big margins to remain in semifinals hunt as they clashed with laggards Krrish Delhi Smashers in their penultimate round tie.
