On Friday night, lots of celebrities from various industries came together for the announcement of the fourth edition of Celebrity Cricket League. Sachin Tendulkar was the chief guest.

The host of the show, Manish Paul, however, goofed up when he referred to the legendary yesteryear cricketer Gundappa Vishwanath as someone else.

While Vishy kept quiet, South actor Venkatesh butted in to correct him. Manish was apologetic after that, adding that Vishy is his father’s favourite cricketer.

Manish Paul later ribbed her about how she managed to walk in grass with such towering heels.
