In the fourth edition of Celebrity Cricket League (CCL 4), the ever beauty Suman Ranganath and Gorgeous Pranitha Subash were seen wearing Karnataka Bulldozers jersey and cheering Kannada film industry.

One Is Not A Brand Ambassador If He Is Wearing Team's Jersey
"Wearing the team jersey doesn't mean you become a brand ambassador. In fact, the wife of the president of one of Sudeep's fan associations was also in the team colours," Ashok concludes.
Madhuri Was Absent
However, the reason behind Madhuri Bhattacharya's absence in CCL 4 is still unclear. The actress was brand ambassador for the team in last three editions.
