Thiruvananthapuram: The Kochi Tuskers IPL franchise may have been terminated, but Kerala cricket buffs can now await the entry of T20 team Kerala Strikers in the Celebrity Cricket League (CCL) representing movie actors from the state.
The team will be captained by southern superstar Mohanlal, who co-owns Kerala Strikers along with director Priyadarshan's wife Lissy and another person.
"Last year there were just four teams - representing the Tamil, Telugu, Bollywood and Kannada film industries. Kerala and Bengal have now joined CCL. The matches for the second edition will begin Jan 21 and end with the final Feb 12," Lissy, who was a glamourous actress in the Malayalam film industry more than a decade back, said.
