Third semi final of 'Harsha Ki Khoj' airs 3 March on ESPN

ESPN Star Sports' (ESS) interactive initiative Dream Job - Harsha Ki Khoj is reaching an exciting climax. The last of the three semi-finals airs on 3 March at 8:30 pm on ESPN. The final takes place on 10 March.

The third semi final is a Wildcard round. Six contestants, who lost in the quarterfinals and were voted back in through SMS votes by viewers will be joined by two contestants who were given a direct entry into the round. Of the eight only two will manage to book a place in the final.

One of the contestants is Srijib Malik. He appeared on Dream Job directly in the quarter-finals by winning a dial-in contest during the India-Bangladesh test series last year; Puneet Pal Singh who had a personal emergency due to which he could not participate in the quarter-finals despite qualifying. The jury thought it only fair to give him a place in the Wildcard round. Mansi Sehdev is the only remaining female contestant. Padamjeet Sehrawat and Manish Valicha have already reached the final through the first two semi finals.

The third semi-final takes the contestants to the Gaachibawli Stadium in Hyderabad when the Premier Hockey League (PHL) was in progress. Their tasks were based around two critical PHL games in February. Contestants' skills as presenters and broadcasters, as well their knowledge of sport and the ability to analyse it, and bring it to viewers in an interesting way, was put to further test. Interviewing hockey players, providing live updates during PHL games, thinking up brilliant promos - the contestants had to face many hurdles. The episode has been shot in reality TV style, with ESPN's cameras following the contestants for two days at PHL in Hyderabad to catch every moment of their tasks, the rivalry between contestants, disappointments and triumphs.

The jury members for this Wildcard semi-final are ESS anchor Harsha Bhogle, Perizaad Zorabian and Darain Shahidi.
