Chepauk Super Gillies Team launched by Actress Samantha at ITC Grand Chola.
It was perhaps the last of the eight teams to stage an event to introduce their team, the logo, the jerseys, the squad, the anthem and the music video. But most certainly, the ‘Curtain-Raiser to Chepauk Super Gillies’ that was staged yesterday in the city, was well worth the wait. Not coincidentally, it turned out to a fitting tribute to ‘Madras Day’, by the only team that represents Chennai.
As the inaugural season of the Tamil Nadu Premier League is all set to roll out, all the eight teams are ready and raring to go. Practice sessions are in full swing and pompous events to raise toasts to their respective teams have been the flavor of the season.
