Zee Network and DNA join hands for Super Sixes Corporate Cricket Challenge

Zee Network and DNA (Daily News & Analysis) have announced the Zee DNA Super Sixes Corporate Cricket Challenge. Four former captains as well as leading international cricket players will team up with corporate India’s best cricket teams for the tournament.

Commenting on the initiative, Pradeep Guha, CEO, Zee Network, said, “Zee DNA Super Sixes is different from regular corporate cricket tournaments, both in format as well as composition. Indian and international cricket stars will be playing as part of the final eight teams.”

He further said, “All members of the winning team will get an opportunity to travel to South Africa to watch India take on the Proteas in their first ever 20-20 One Day game to be played in Johannesburg.”

The tournament will see players from corporate cricket teams playing alongside cricketing stalwarts such as Mohammad Azharuddin, Dilip Vengsarkar, Krishnamachari Srikkanth, Arvinda Desilva, Romesh Kaluwitharna, Venkatesh Prasad and Nayan Mongia.

In total, 64 teams comprising six players each will take part in this tournament. These 64 teams will be divided into four groups of 16 teams each. Eight teams will qualify for the quarter finals. The qualifying matches will be played on October 28 and 29, and the quarter-finals, semi-finals and finals will be played on November 12 in Mumbai. Zee Sports will telecast the highlights of the quarter-finals, semi-finals and finals the following weekend.

One international cricket player will be a part of each of the eight teams from the quarter-final stage onwards. Noted commentator Charu Sharma and former cricketer Ayaz Memon have been roped in for commentary throughout the tournament.
