CCL 2014 – Day 1
Cricket and movies are engraved in India’s DNA. While IPL made cricket look like a pop movie, the filmwalahs discovered a better way to set the cash registers ringing. They decided to take to the cricket field and battle it out on the greens.
Match 1 of Celebrity Cricket League 2014 saw two time winners Chennai Rhinos beat Mumbai Heroes by 6 wickets. Chennai Rhinos’ Sharan was declared Man of the Match for his brilliant 47 runs from 27 balls.
Bollywood actor Aftab Shivdasani, who top scored for Mumbai Heroes with 79 runs from 60 balls, posted on Twitter: ‘Thank you for all your support and kind words, unfortunate end to our game yest, very proud of the MH team though, will come back stronger.’
Match 2 of Celebrity Cricket League 2014 saw Bhojpuri Dabanggs reign supreme over Veer Marathi by 79 runs. Bhojpuri Dabanggs’ Uday Tiwary was declared Man of the Match for his blistering knock of 93 runs off just 40 balls.
Bollywood actor Riteish Deshmukh, who captains Veer Marathi, posted on Twitter: “Extremely sorry for the poor performance of @veermarathi – we will fight back.”
