Star Sports has roped in former cricketer Virender Sehwag, for a campaign to promote the India Vs Bangladesh contest. The campaign depicts Sehwag taking on an animated avatar of a Bangladeshi ball in a simple game of ‘Chidiya Udd’, a game that all kids in India have played wherein a finger is raised by the players to depict whether the person/thing called out flies or not.

 

Speaking about the on-going rivalry, Sehwag said: “Bangladesh is a good side and the rivalry has snowballed since their win in the 2007 ICC Cricket World Cup and when we toured Bangladesh in 2015. However, Bangladesh haven’t tasted success in the T20 format as India have consistently beaten them in all encounters between the two teams. The off-the-field banter is noticed in both camps. Bangladeshi fans take their cricket quite seriously and we have witnessed an outburst on social media with significant online trolling in the past. It is going to be an exciting series and I can’t wait to catch the action on field.”

 

The Bangladesh tour of India consisting of three T20 Is and two Tests begins on November 3.
