Says Rajat Jain, Exec.VP, Set Max, "The first round of Gully Cricket was a for Max when it was held in August and September, prior to the ICC Champions Trophy. Thousands of fans turned up at the various locations in the five cities where it was held."

Talking about the reason of second round, Jain says, "Gully Cricket has been a never-before kind of viewer promotion campaign. And after it received such a tremendous response from cricket fans across the country, we felt that it had to be taken to even more cities…to enable more people to play cricket with our brand ambassador Kapil Dev, right in their backyard, so to speak."

Adds Kapil Dev, "I have had great fun with Gully Cricket. It gave me an opportunity to play my favourite game with my fans - children, teenagers and even much older people. The atmosphere was charged with cricket fever, and I am looking forward to the second round of Gully Cricket with Max."
