Businessman Manik Soni, who is the owner of MTV BCL team Goa Sharks along with Alan Kapoor, is one to pamper his players. Soni, who knows the players well, owns a spa chain and regularly interacts with them when they come for massages. “I guess they are comfortable with me because I own spas and I pamper them with health and beauty spas. So, they come often to my spa and that’s how I maintain my relationship with them,” he laughs.
Soni says that he tries to support his team as much as he can. “As the owner I would love to see my team winning BCL. It’s my responsibility to choose the best players, best faces, and best people to support our team,” he says.
He adds, “My vision is to win BCL. We want to continue playing matches throughout the years.”
Ask him who his favorite cricketer is, and he says, “Harbhajan Singh is my favorite because he is a fantastic player and even as a human being he supports people who need help.”
