Jiiva Vishal
The Celebrity Cricket League (CCL) is a yearly tournament, in which all the film industries in India, i.e., Kerala Strikers, Chennai Rhinos, Telugu Warriors, Mumbai Heroes, Karnataka Bulldozers, Bengal Tigers, Veer Marathi and Bhojpuri Dabbangs, vie for the CCL Cup. The fifth edition of CCL will commence from January 10th, 2015.

The latest news is that the Chennai Rhinos’ captain, Vishal has relinquished his captaincy due to hectic shooting schedules. His best buddy, Jiiva has been selected as the new captain of the team.

Vishal was the reigning captain right from the first edition of the tournament under whom Chennai Rhinos has won two tournaments. Now that he has quit his captaincy, his role has been assigned to Jiiva. Though all players who take part in CCL are professional actors, their passion and commitment level are nothing short of professional players.

Celebrities take their cricket seriously, illustrating this fact are a few incidents that have taken place on the cricket field in the previous four tournaments. Karnataka Bulldozers have won two tournaments so far and are considered to be the arch rivals of Chennai Rhinos. In the second edition, when the finals was played between these two teams, Sudeep, captain of Karnataka Bulldozers was not happy with one particular player from the opposite camp. The emotions witnessed in each and every player involved in the quarrel were genuine.

Meanwhile, Vishal's upcoming film Aambala is most likely to hit screens February next year according to latest report. The film features Hansika Motwani as the female lead and Sundar C is calling the shots. 'Hiphop Tamizha' Aadhi has turned music director through Aambala and the album has already become a hit among music lovers.
