The list includes players of international circuit, such as Yuvraj Singh, Virendra Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Adam Gilchrist and Brett Lee, who are not interested in the show and have not signed the project. These cricketers were supposed to accompany Priyanka Chopra in Brazil for the show.
“Talks have been on with cricketers. Ever since Priyanka was announced as the show’s new host two months ago, negotiations have been on, but no player is on board yet. Several names were to be picked from the various IPL teams. But the happenings towards the end of the tourney threw everything off-gear,” a source informed.
The reason for their denial could also be the fact that Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni lambasted the fellow teammates for not concentrating hard on themselves during the Indian Premiere League.
