A 50 over one dayer, the match will be telecast live on Maa as well as Jaya TV fom 9 am to 5 pm from the municipal stadium in Vizag.

The channel currently has promos running on its channel with Sachin, Chiranjeevi and the other players talking about their enthusiasm and eagerness to meet and play together.

According to the channel, with Jaya TV also getting the feed from Maa TV, viewership is likely to be enhanced, covering a large part of South India.
