Recently, Celebrity Cricket League faced a clash of sorts when Mumbai Heroes and Veer Marathi played against each other. Competition was high for this one since Riteish Deshmukh used to be the vice captain of the Mumbai team, before he left to form his own team, Veer Marathi. As usual, several people came out to support – Genelia D’Souza, Nargis Fakhri, Ashish Chaudhary, Karishma Tanna and Zayed Khan were present on the sidelines, while Jackky Bhagnani put in an appearance to do the Gangnam Style. Have a look at pictures!
Suniel Shetty, captain of the Mumbai Heroes, said: “On the field, we are rivals. As a captain, I feel I have lost my Sachin in Riteish. Also more than him, I miss Genelia. She was the life of the team.”
Riteish says, “It’s not easy to play against the Mumbai Heroes as they are my friends. I have played with them and worked in movies with them too. But I’m sure both the teams will play to win and the spirit of the game will be retained.”
If you’re wondering, Veer Marathi won this match and have now made it into the semifinals!
