Celebrity Cricket League announces its schedule, inaugural match between Karnataka Bulldozers and Mumbai Heroes
After the Indian Premier League, it is the turn of the Celebrity Cricket League to show how entertaining cricket can be. Especially when you have cinestars from the south and Bollywood associated with it. The CCL has announced its schedule – the inaugural match will be held in Bengaluru on June 4 with Sudeep’s Karnataka Bulldozers taking on Suniel Shetty’s Mumbai Heroes (owned by Salman Khan). In the second match of the day, Suriya’s Chennai Rhinos will pit their skills against Venkatesh’s Telugu Warriors. Thereafter, Chennai and Hyderabad will host two matches each on June 5 and June 11 respectively. Based on the points tally, the final will be held on June 12, at Hyderabad.
Remember the curtain raiser match? Southern Superstars, consisting of the top stars from different southern teams, and Mumbai Heroes faced off in Visakhapatnam earlier this year. Southern Superstars had won that match, but we wonder how the CCL will turn out especially since the team’s captain Venkatesh and deputy captain Sudeep will now lead opposing teams.
All the celebrities involved have announced that the proceeds from the matches will be donated to the Artistes’ Association, for taking care of health and educational expenses of its members. Now, shouldn’t we give our stars an extra loud cheer, just for that?
