#EkNayiLeague with Kapil Dev!

I'm sure most of you reading this, like me, have seen the recent TVCs where Kapil Dev talks about a new league coming soon: Ek Nayi League. Kapil Dev has been talking to celebrities about how they would fail if they played his Nayi League with all their heart. If you're oblivious to the same, take a look at one of the ads-


Though I cannot really call myself a cricket fanatic, I love to support our country, specially when it's India VS Pakistan. Hahahaha..  Kapil Dev is a legend, and we all adore him, and of-course I am very curious, like all of us as to what this new league can be?

The only hint he gives is that if one plays this league with all their heart, they're bound to loose. This league has to be played with one's mind. So the first thing that came to my mind is, is this a sports quiz? Or a cricket quiz contest, rather?

Imagine a Bournvita Quiz Contest hosted by Derek O'Brien and picture a cricket version of the same. Of-course, all the contestants would require to apply their brains for this one! Questions could be like the following-

In which year did India make its One Day International debut?

Sachin Tendulkar has a record for highest One Day International Man of the Match awards. How many times he has won it?

You get the idea right? How cool would such a quiz be! Maybe Kapil Dev is the official host/judge of this new league?

If this theory of mine is wrong, another thing that pops into my head is that it is going to be a cricket league for retired players?

Imagine Kapil Dev, Anil Kumble, Rahul Dravid, Siddhu, Ravi Shastri and now recently even the legendary Sachin Tendulkar and all other retired players from other countries come together to play a different kind of league!

Now granted their age, health issues and fitness level; also taking into account their years of experience in cricket. This will be more of a game testing their strategy and mind rather than their body and physical self! Maybe that is what Kapil Dev is suggesting in these commercials? I'm just guessing!

Do check their website out, and send in your own answers to what this new league can be, you could win 1 Lak rupees! Also, follow them on twitter - @EkNayiLeague to stay tuned with the latest updates! I am doing that for sure.

What if this "new league" has got absolutely nothing to do with cricket at all? What if it is something entirely off the topic of sports itself! If you change your perspective away from sports, applying brains could be anything from mathematics to science to general knowledge!

All I can say is, let's wait and watch to see what this new league is all about.
