Box Cricket League To Make A Comeback On SAB TV?
In 2015 Ekta Kapoor joined hands with Marinating films to launch Box Cricket League. Last year’s TRPs were nothing to write home about, an on-air slot of 4:30pm did not help.

Popular actors like Divyanka Tripathi, Shaheer Sheikh, Anita Hassanandani, Karan Patel, Shabbir Ahluwalia, Aly Goni, Erica Fernandes, Kamya Punjabi, Kishwer Merchantt, Karan Wahi, Rithvik Dhanjani, Ssharad Malhotra, Sara Khan and others were seen playing India’s favourite sport. Their game and backstage stories made headlines through the league.

The show was supposed to make a comeback this year in March but due to some sponsor issues and creative disputes, the on-air date was shifted to May. Box Cricket league had to be rescheduled one more time for August and now we hear that the show is finally going on-air, but in January 2018 and this time not on Colors.

A source informed that the makers were struggling to obtain a slot on Colors for a few months. However, since that didn’t work out, after much wait and deliberation they decided to approach SAB TV.

Fans of the league will have to wait just a little longer to watch it on TV again. Meanwhile, the league’s celebrity participants are ensuring they keep the audience hooked.  Divyanka Tripathi Dahiya recently shot a photoshoot for her BCL team.

Last year the battle was between Chandigarh Cubs, Pune Anmol Ratan, Chennai Swaggers, Delhi Dragons, Mumbai Tigers, Jaipur Raj Joshiley, Ahmedabad Express, Lucknow Nawabs, Rowdy Bangalore, Kolkata Babumoshai.
