What is better than watching the cricket World Cup? Perhaps a game by the Celebrity Cricket League (CCL).

Bollywood and cricket have always been major crowd pullers, and in a novel attempt to combine the two, the CCL has been launched.

The league is based on the Twenty-20 cricket module and will feature teams of actors from different languages (Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, and Kannada).

The tournament, which is scheduled to take place in June, will first have a friendly match between the 'South Superstars' and the 'Mumbai Heroes' on March 5 at the ACA-VDCA stadium in Vizag.



The 'Mumbai Heroes' team will be headed by Suniel Shetty and includes the likes of Salman Khan, Shabbir Aluwalia, Riteish Deshmukh, Aftab Shivdasani, Dino Morea, Kabir Sadanand, Kunal Khemu and Mahesh Manjrekar, while the team itself is owned by Salman Khan's father Salim Khan.

Sudeep will captain the 'South Superstars', which consists of Chiranjeevi, Venkatesh, Madhavan, Sarath Kumar, Suriya, Vijay and others.

This will surely be one match that everyone will look forward to.
