The second season of United Cricket Bash (UCB) was launched by Jonty Rhodes lending full support to its promoters Fahim Batliwala, Akbar Khan, karan Tondon, wahab Barudgar, Sameer chunawala, Farook chunawala and Aarif chunawala at a brand new OM turf opposite PVR in Juhu, Mumbai.
Dressed in black jeans and a white T-shirt, the former South African cricketer Jonty Rhodes, regarded as one of the greatest fielders of all time wowed the UCB players and spectators with his cute smiling face and enthralled the spectators during a particular moment when he put on his act of limping around which evoked spontaneous laughter all around the ground.
“This season is bigger and innovative with 16 teams and innovative rules being implemented in this one of its kind cricket tournament spread over three weeks,” mentioned Fahim Batliwala.
“I was nervous about this evening in the beginning. Even IPL had a very humble beginning and see where it has grown up to. UCB is a great concept and I have noticed that people are very passionate about cricket here in Mumbai, for them cricket is more than ‘just a game’. The reason I started playing cricket was just for fun and that continued till the end,” spoke an emotional Jonty.
Remarking about the new venue – Om Turf, the first of its kind in Mumbai, Jonty remarked, “It is a great turf here and I expect the cricketers to dive for catches and even save runs for their teams.
Promoting promote fitness through cricket is the motto of this years UCB which has its matches shown live on 2 dedicated channels of 7 stars.
