Finally, a cricket reality show on Indian TV

NEW DELHI: In a cricket-crazy nation, how could a reality show on the popular sport be far behind? UTV Bindass is set to launch “Cricket Champs”, a nationwide hunt for cricket talent, waiting to find the right mentoring and platform to excel in the sport.

The show is being launched in association with New Delhi-based Indraprastha All India Sports Foundation. Cricketers like Irfan Pathan, Yusuf Pathan, Keerti Aazad and Piyush Chawla among others will be mentors on the show. “There is a definite attraction for such a show on cricket. Our main target audience at UTV Bindass is the youth, who will be happy to see revered icons like Irfan Pathan mentoring young cricket enthusiasts on how to play professionally,” Keith Alphonso, the channel’s business head, told IANS over phone from Mumbai.
