Miriam Dotto Saldanha is this week’s Toofani Fan from Brazil. Miriam got introduced to the game of cricket by her Indian friend. She started following the game online and soon fell in love with it. She also started watching a lot of Bollywood movies, especially the ones that starred Shah Rukh Khan. When she got to know SRK owned an IPL team, she started following KKR too. And ever since then, it's been a journey of love for her. She is yet to watch a match in the stadium but hopes to visit India soon to watch her cricket idol Andre Russell and Bollywood idol SRK in action during an IPL match.

#ToofaniFanStories "My story is simple. I made an Indian friend in 2000 and he explained cricket to me that year. Since it wasn't a popular game in Brazil, this was the first time I was hearing of it. I searched the internet to see if I could watch a game, but at that time it was difficult. I've always liked sports and I found cricket very interesting. Over time, my friend taught me about Sachin, Dhoni, and others and I immediately started to become more interested in the sport. With the internet, things got a lot easier. After falling in love with India, I started watching Bollywood films, and especially ones with Shah Rukh Khan in them. It was love at first sight with him and after I found out that he owned a cricket team, I knew right away which team I was going to root for! Unfortunately, I haven't yet had the opportunity to watch a game in the stadium, but it is definitely in my plans, the next time I visit India. Who knows, I may have the honour of watching my great idol Andre Russell playing live! Nowadays, I am really happy that it has become easier to follow the games online. I love KKR with all my heart and I can not express how happy I am to see them back in action this year and that too with SRK himself in the audience! I hope all of them stay safe and do great. Korbo Lorbo Jeetbo!" - Miriam Dotto Saldanha, sending in her love all the way from Brazil 💜 Share your Toofani Story with us at social@kkr.in and stand a chance to get featured! #TuFanNahiToofanHai #KKRHaiTaiyaar #Dream11IPL
