image Team members of Chennai Rhinos, who won the Celebrity Cricket League (CCL) cup for the second year in a row in Hyderabad on Sunday, were accorded a warm welcome at the Chennai airport when they returned to their hometown on Monday.

Movie and cricket lovers thronged the airport and welcomed the team led by Vishal with cheers. Cakes were distributed, greeting slogans filled the air and garlands decorated the players’ neck, as they stepped out from the domestic terminal.

During the final played at the Rajiv Gandhi Stadium in Hyderabad on Sunday, the Kollywood team registered a thrilling two-run win against Karnataka Bulldozers.

Batting first, Chennai posted a challenging total of 161 in the allotted 20 overs thanks to stupendous knock of 95 by opener Vikranth.

In reply, Karnataka’s Dhruv and Karthik scored quick runs despite the early loss of three wickets. When the final over began, Chennai Rhinos looked like they were out of the contest, but an outstanding last over by Vikranth helped Chennai retain the title.
