This was in fact the unfulfilled wish of the young Akkineni Prince for a long time. Every time he gave his best but this time he could enjoy the fruit which is what keeping him so excited.
Yes we are talking about Akhil Akkineni. Winning the Celebrity Cricket League cup was in his wish list right from his debut edition (Of course, he was the Vice Captain). Now in this CCL5, he successfully led the entire team of Telugu Warriors with the able support of his team and the guidance and mentorship of Captain Venkatesh Daggubati and Dilip Vengasarkar. Telugu Warriors are now the New Champions of CCL 5. In the previous edition, TW reached the finals and ended up as Runner Ups but this year, they have emerged the champions with an all-round performance.
Chasing the target of 133 in the final with Chennai Rhinos on Sunday (Feb 1) in the home ground (Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium) was indeed a cake walk for the Telugu Warriors. Sudhir Babu (37 runs from 24 balls) and Akhil (32 runs from 21 balls) gave their team a memorable 7 wicket win. Sudhir Babu was declared the Man of the Match.
However, Akhil was so excited about this win and he shared his excitement with a post that reads as follows:
“After five years !!!! Finally for my captain !!! I'm so thrilled to be sitting with him with the cup ! Venkatesh Daggubati”
