Star Sports launches TVC ahead of India-Australia series

Star Sports launches TVC ahead of India-Australia series

New Delhi, Sep 6 (UNI) Star Sports, the official sports broadcaster for the India-Australia ODI limited over series, has rolled out a TVC for the upcoming tournament, which will feature five ODIs and three T20Is. The film, set to an 'Aussie sab jaanta hai' jingle, brings alive the creative idea that the Australian cricket team is more at home in India. With frequent tours and annual IPL stints, many Australian cricketers are now quite familiar with the Indian conditions and so, they know the ‘home turf’ as well as the Indian cricket team. The familiarity with Indian conditions, along with the quality and experience amongst the Australian team would mean a spectacular contest between two equally matched opponents. The protagonist in the film is an Australian (Aussie) fan clad in the team jersey exhibiting his knowledge on all things quintessential Indian (history, cuisine, culture, etc.). Throughout the film, the Australian tourist surprises the locals across various walks of life, by displaying his know-how of all things Indian. The film culminates with Indian cricket legend Virender Sehwag making a surprise appearance and quipping,"The Aussie may know everything, but do they he know enough to win on the field?” Significantly, the Steve Smith-led aussie side will tour India after the conclusion of the ongoing Test series between Australia and Bangladesh.
