Not going to the Chinnaswamy Stadium to watch the action unfold? Here’s how you can still catch all of it.
It’s the third weekend of Celebrity Cricket League qualifiers and today, March 4, all roads lead to the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. The first match of the day is between Sonu Sood’s Punjab De Sher and Akhil Akkineni’s Telugu Warriors at 2.30 pm. The second, and, perhaps, the highlight of the day, is the match between two heavy-weights, home team Karnataka Bulldozers, who are currently at second position on the points table and the Chennai Rhinos, scheduled to start at 7 pm.
The official broadcast partner of the Celebrity Cricket League is Zee Network, which is making the live telecast available on nine of its channels with commentary in Hindi, Bengali, Kannada, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Bhojpuri and Bangla, as the case maybe. If you do not have Zee Network on your cable subscription and no Zee5 either, you can still watch all the matches without spending a pie.
You will need to download the Zee5 app, then search for the channel of your choice – for instance, if you are looking for the Karnataka Bulldozers vs Chennai Rhinos match with Kannada commentary, search for Zee Picchar. Similarly, for Bengal Tiger matches with Bangla commentary, go to Zee Bangla Cinema, Zee Biskoppe for Bhojpuri Dabanggs, Flowers TV for Kerala Strikers, &Pictures for Mumbai Heroes, Zee Thirai for Chennai Rhinos, Zee Cinemalu for Telugu Warriors and PTC Punjabi for Punjab De Sher matches. If you are okay with Hindi commentary and want to watch all matches, irrespective of which side is playing, go to Zee Anmol Cinema.
Alternatively, you can also log in to the official Youtube page of the Celebrity Cricket League, which has separate links for the matches of the day, so even if you missed one, you can go back and catch all the action. Commentary here is in Hindi.
