Star Sports unveils #ChaseTheRecord campaign featuring Aamir Khan

The bilateral series against the Proteas will begin on June 9 and will be live on the Star Sports Network and Disney+ Hotstar.

Following two months of thrilling Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022, T20I cricket returns as the Indian team prepares to make history in a five-match bilateral series against South Africa.

India will look to prolong its winning streak to 13-0 during the first fixture of the series. To emphasise this emotion, the official broadcaster of the series, Star Sports Network has launched the #ChaseTheRecord campaign featuring the Bollywood actor, Aamir Khan.

Star Sports spokesperson said, “Following an exciting IPL, the focus now shifts to bilateral series which brings back the ‘Believe In Blue’ narrative as Team India plays for another World Record. The campaign puts into perspective the tremendous fan support and belief the country has behind the Men In Blue. This will be a continuing journey across the calendar of events that lead to the main ICC T20 World Cup later this year. Aamir Khan was a natural fit for this film, and he has been exceptional in making the clarion call to viewers and fans to back the Men in Blue.”

The campaign film is created and conceptualised by Star Sports’ in-house team and features Aamir Khan wearing team India’s jersey while reiterating the chant of fans eager to be a part of this historic occasion.

Aamir Khan said, “There’s always a very special feeling when Team India is in action. This time, they come together post franchise cricket to play for India and for the world record of 13 consecutive T20I wins. Like we cheer a bowler, as he starts his run up before a hat-trick, similarly it’s time to cheer for our boys-in-blue before this historic moment! I have blocked my time from 7 PM on June 9th like all the other fans for the opening match and I’m ready to cheer for my team consisting of some amazing young and deserving talent who have proven their mettle in IPL.”

The five-match T20I series will feature youngsters and the best performing IPL 2022 players looking for an opportunity to shine and secure a spot to become regulars in the Indian team. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) selection panel has named Umran Malik and Arshdeep Singh to the 18-man squad that will be led by KL Rahul. Malik had a breakout season, the pacer took 22 wickets in 14 games, bowling consistently at more than 150 kmph. Meanwhile, Arshdeep became the MVP as a death bowler for Punjab Kings (PBKS). Hardik Pandya, who has been outstanding this season, returns to the squad and so does the star batsman of Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), Dinesh Karthik.

The bilateral series against the Proteas will begin on June 9, 2022, and will be live on the Star Sports Network and Disney+ Hotstar.
