The celebrities have decided to not just stand in the pavillion cheering but actually get on the field and play the game of cricket. And the 2011 Celebrity Cricket League is the outcome. However, the Mumbai team has been facing a few problems of late.After losing to Karnataka Bulldozers, the Mumbai Heroes team captained by Sohail Khan has decided that they needed their vice-captain Riteish Deshmukh, who has been shooting for Sajid Nadiadwala™s upcoming project Housefull 2 in London, back for their match in Vizag against the Tamil stars. And to do the needful, Salman Khan wielded the phone and made a call.Salman, who is a part of the Mumbai Heroes team and also a good friend of Housefull 2 producer Sajid Nadiadwala, pleaded with the filmmaker to send his actor Riteish back to India for this all-important match. The team did not play the first two matches too well. Riteish is one of the better players and is also the Vice Captain of the team.He played the first match and was suppsoed to leave soon after. But since he is such a good player, he stayed on for the second. He then left for the shoot in London. However, the team feels that they need Riteish back for the third match as well.Hence Salman called up Sajid Nadiadwala, with who he shares a very close rapport, to let Riteish come and play the match,¯ revealed our source. The match is on June 11 and if the Mumbai Heroes team wins the match, they stand a chance to reach the finals on June 12.
It won™t be a long break from shoots and Nadiadwala spoke to his director Sajid Khan and figured they could allow Riteish to leave,¯ the source added.There is apparently not much to worry about practice sessions either. The team had been doing the needful for over a month now. Though the filmmakers, shooting in London currently, remained unavailable for comments, Riteish™s manager confirmed the same and added, Riteish absolutely loves cricket and admires Salman Khan. So when there is a request from Salman and if there are no disruptions in the shoot, he will definitely make it.¯
