Star India snaps up broadcast rights to Sachin-Warne's Cricket All-Stars
MUMBAI:
Star
India
has
snapped
up
the
broadcast
rights
of
the
much
awaited
venture
of
Sachin
Tendulkar
and
Shane
Warne
namely
The
Cricket
All-
Stars
T20
tournament,
featuring
cricket
legends
from
across
the
globe.
Confirming
the
development
to Indiantelevision.com a source close
to the development said, "The rights
are with Star and we all are looking
forward to the tournament."
While Master Card has been roped in
as the title sponsor of the
tournament, negotiations are on with
a few more brand. The source adds,
"We are in the last phase of
proceedings and will soon reveal many
more developments.”
The Cricket All-Stars T20 tournament
is set to unfold on 7 November, 2015
in New York. The tourney will then
move to Houston on 11 November and
to Los Angeles on 14 November.
Virender Sehwag, who recently
retired, has also joined the roster,
which has former Indian greats like
Sourav Ganguly, VVS Laxman and Ajit
Agarkar. While Warne confirmed his
participation in the tournament a few
days back, the master blaster
Tendulkar was also spotted sweating
it out in the nets yet again. Some of
the others former cricketers who are
a part of the league are Kumar
Sangakkara, Jonthy Rhodes, Wasim
Akram, Glen Mcgrath and Ricky
Ponting.
His recent tweets read :
Had fun at the nets today.
#ComingToAmerica, see you in New
York in 10 days..

Welcoming Sehwag and beginning the
countdown, Telndulkar tweeted:

distinct style ......................

Senior cricket expert Hemant Kenkre
said, "It's a delightful opportunity for
the average American cricket fans to
see the legends playing in front of
them. The initiative is nice. I
remember something similar was done
in Brabourne Stadium long back. From
cricket's perspective, it remains to be
seen how fit the players are, it’s
been long since many of them retired
and no one knows how much cricket
they have been playing. But overall
Wasim Akram bowling to Lara or Sachin
facing Warne again would be a worthy
sight for cricket lovers."
A sports media planning veteran added,
"Sachin, Sourav, Sehwag, Warne in
one pitch again can take viewership to
a different level, recently we saw in
Wankhede how the entire stadium was
chanting Sachinnnnn! Sachinnnnnn!
Having said that, the matches are to
be played in America so the timing will
be an issue for the Indian audience.
Moreover, how competitive the
matches are, will be another factor to
look at. Overall the first three
matches will be an experiment and the
quality of those will determine the
future."
