When R Ashwin asks about her love for the franchise, Kate revealed that MS Dhoni has been one of the main reasons for the same. She also divulged that although she has not visited Chennai, she is trying to know more about the city out of which her favourite franchise is based.
It is here when Ashwin asks Kate if she has learnt a few Tamil words. The Indian off-spinner even goes on and teaches the word ‘Vanakkam’ meaning ‘Welcome’ to the English cricketer. He also told the meaning of Whistle Podu, CSK’s tagline, to Kate. Ashwin also explained that the word ‘Yellove’ is more of a ‘Tan-glish’ (Tamil+English) slang. Kate had initially thought that this word is from the Tamil language. This way, the duo entertained the viewers with their exchange in the interview.
