Veteran actor Suniel Shetty recently added a dash of excitement to the ongoing cricketing frenzy by disclosing his favourite cricketer.

“My favorite cricketer in today’s time is definitely Virat Kohli. KL is my son. When it’s family, you don’t talk about family. My favorite cricketer is Virat Kohli because he is the master of chasing,” said Suniel.
