Badminton star PV Sindhu has stated that if given a choice to choose a doubles partner from the current crop of Indian players, she wouldn’t mind playing alongside former Indian cricket team skipper MS Dhoni or his successor Virat Kohli.

Sindhu, who was in the stands to watch the last home game of Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Kolkata Knight Riders in the league stages at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, told the television presenter there’s a lot to learn from both Kohli and Dhoni even though they played a different sport.

“I would choose one of the best from the Indian cricket team to be my doubles partner. I don’t know how all of them play! There is a lot you can learn from Dhoni and Kohli,” Sindhu.

“There’s a lot you can learn from them even being in a different sport. The aggressiveness, the way they play, there’s lots to see from Dhoni and Kohli,” she added.

Sindhu stated that she does follow the franchise when she’s in town and doesn’t have a packed schedule. “When I’m in Hyderabad and have no matches, I do follow Sunrisers matches.

“When I’m off from badminton and I’m in Hyderabad, I do come for matches. Last time also I was here and this time again. Also since its a Saturday, I came to enjoy and chill.”

However Sindhu, who’s one of the big names missing from the Uber Cup, had to return home disappointed as Kolkata Knight Riders won the tie by five wickets to cruise through to the last-four stages of the IPL 2018.
