Akhil Akkineni, son of Nagarjuna, has been included in the Telugu
Warriors for the inaugural Celebrity Cricket League (CCL) T20.
Vishnu Manchu, the owner of the team, has confirmed the news and
has said that his inclusion has strengthened the team.
Vishu Manchu has said that he is a good cricket player and we
have witnessed it in the last year's T20 Tollywood Trophy. He is an
asset to the team and rubbished the rumours that claimed he is not
an actor. He added that the son of Nagarjuna had acted as a child
artist in Sisindri.
The celebrity team has already started its preparation for the
CCL T20, which will take-off on June 4 in Bengaluru. Telugu
Warriors' captain Venkatesh, and his teammates Siddharth, Akhil,
Tarun, Srikanth, Balakrishnan, Vishnu and Aadarsh are undergoing
rigorous training under the guidance of coach Vanka Pratap in a
resort in Hyderabad.
Telugu Warriors will clash against Chennai Rhinos, which is lead
by Surya, this Saturday at Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru. The
Tollywood team has almost been finalized but Vishnu Manchu is yet
to announce the complete squad.
