120 television stars… 8 teams… battling it out for the coveted trophy over 19 matches can only mean one thing… that the big daddy of all reality shows, the Box Cricket League has arrived. Sony Entertainment Television today announced the launch of BCL, India’s first ever sports reality show.

This unique format has been conceptualized by Marinating Films and produced by Balaji Telefilms; Season 1 of this championship will be telecast on Sony Entertainment Television soon.
Cricket has always been considered a religion in India and when mixed with a high dose of glamour and drama, it serves as the ultimate form of entertainment! BCL consists of 8 teams, comprising 120 popular television celebrities who will compete against each other playing a total of 19 matches of 14 overs each.

All the teams will be divided into two groups, A and B. Each team in Group A will play against each team of Group B, leading to 4 teams qualifying for the semi-finals. The winner will then compete in a high-octane final for the coveted trophy.
Matches will commence with a face-off between the two playing teams, where they will perform signature moves on their team anthem. Giving the mundane coin toss a skip, BCL has introduced a ‘filmy toss’ with options like ‘Jai or Veeru’, ‘Basanti or Dhanno’. Upping the glam quotient will be two BCL titlis, Noorin Shah and Vrushika Mehta, who will perform acts during time outs and the ball change. Making the game more entertaining, viewers will also get to see behind the scenes action, locker room gossips and some extremely creative awards like Gentleman of the Match and Most Stylish Player of the Match amongst others.
