Star Cricket to premiere two documentaries on cricket

In a bid to cater to the cricket-crazy fan base, Start Cricket is introducing two documentaries – ‘Million Dollar Babies’ and ‘The Academy’. ‘Million Dollar Babies’, which premieres on October 6, is a half-hour 10-part documentary series, which will air on Mondays at 9 pm. ‘The Academy’ is a 13-part documentary, premiering on October 7 that will air on Tuesdays at 9 pm.

RC Venkateish, Managing Director, ESPN Software India Pvt Ltd, said, “These two documentary series are part of our overall strategy of showcasing a good mix of live and feature programmes. We have the best of ‘live’ action across varied sports categories, whereas in the non-live programmes we create innovative features for the sports fanatics in the country.”

‘Million Dollar Babies’ takes a look at the lives of nine cricketers who have made a mark not only on the cricket field but off it as well. The series is an unobtrusive look at the achievements and high points that these nine have had over their respective careers from the time when they hadn’t even begun to play cricket, to the point where they are at right now.

‘The Academy’ is an in-depth look at the breeding ground of future cricketers across the world. Shot extensively across the globe, this series covers cricket academies in England, Australia, India, Pakistan and Dubai. It looks at the various training methods used for budding cricketers as well as the facilities these academies provide. The series also shows the growing interaction between these academies with increasing exchange programmes.
