Bollywood's most versatile actor Farhan Akhtar is all set to inaugurate 'Cricket Live' ahead of the first match of Dream 11 IPL 2020 on Star Sports Live Broadcast. As the country is going through a difficult phase due to Covid-19, this season has become even more special as it will allow people to stay safe at home to watch their favorite tournament.

Farhan Akhtar will begin the tournament with 'Cricket Live' ahead of the much-awaited clash between Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings. He will address this difficult time of the present day and show how this 'storm' can be fought with the help of 'faith'.

Speaking exclusively to Star Sports Cricket Live, Farhan said, “It is a difficult time and our nation is constantly trying to move forward. The announcement of the IPL was a relief, moving forward with 'New Normal'. I have always looked forward to sports action and the return of live Indian cricket is also coming after a long hiatus. ”

The actor added, "There is a lot to learn from the personal journey of the team or individual. It is important to get up after a fall, learn from mistakes, and most importantly, stay grounded and humble even after victory. I have understood this sentiment more seriously after working on my upcoming film 'Storm', which is set on the backdrop of the game. "

He also said, "It is very important to be flexible, optimistic and ready to fight against all odds in such a difficult time waiting for a better tomorrow." Personally, the inauguration of the first show 'Cricket Live' on Star Sports has its fun, which will see the much-awaited IPL clash between MI and CSK. Excited for it. "

Farhan Akhtar will be seen on Star Sports pre-show Cricket Live on September 19 from 6 pm.
