Kiccha Sudeep, Golden Star Ganesh, Akhil Akkineni, Manoj Tiwari, Riteish Deshmukh and many other stars will headline the semifinal stage of CCL 2023
Fans were disappointed to know that the final three games of CCL 2023 were delayed by a week due to undisclosed reasons. The two semifinals were originally scheduled to take place on March 18th in Hyderabad and the finale on the following day (March 19th) at the same venue.
And now, following the change in plans, the coastal city of Vizag or Visakhapatnam will play host to these much-awaited matches with March 24th (semis) and March 25th (finale) as the new chosen dates.
Kiccha Sudeep fans have been keenly following the cricket tournament so far with the Karnataka Bulldozers being one of the four semi-finalists. The Bulldozers managed to stay undefeated in the tricky league stage of CCL 2023 and even finished at the top of the table, before the semifinal list was drawn. Sudeep & Co. will be facing off against the very competent and dangerous Telugu Warriors who, following two back-to-back losses in the league stage, would hope to return to their winning ways.
Akhil Akkineni, who has led the Warriors so far with his blistering knocks, will be a player to watch out for with fellow Telugu stars Sudheer Babu, music composer S. Thaman and others hopefully chipping in with valuable contributions.
For the Karnataka Bulldozers, Pradeep Bogadi (captain of the side), Karthik Jayaram, Golden Star Ganesh, Rajeev Hanu and others have been instrumental in the unbeaten run so far and all the fans would certainly hope to see them at their best on March 24th.
In the other semifinal, Riteish Deshmukh-led Mumbai Heroes will battle it out against Manoj Tiwari's Bhojpuri Dabanggs. The Dabanggs, much like the Bulldozers, have remained unbeaten so far but would hope to not face their maiden defeat in the semis.
