Athletes going undercover and performing seems to be some kind of a trend these days.
The latest entrant to this list is Sourav Ganguly.
Pizza Hut rolled out a social media campaign titled ‘Cricket with Rannvijay’. It called out to cricket fans and the youth of Kolkata challenging them to play better than Rannvijay and get Pizza Hut pan pizzas if they did. Rannvijay set those assembled at the Sourav Ganguly Cricket Academy a target.
As people went upon achieving it, one Pizza Hut delivery boy (Ganguly) seemed to ridicule most shots. This made Rannvijay call him to the crease to showcase his skills.
First batting as a right handed batsman, Ganguly struggled. He then shifted to his usual left handed batting stance and produced an onslaught. The experiment ended with Ganguly getting rid of his make-up.
Recently, Star Sports India had rolled out a video of former Australian cricket Brett Lee. Lee was under disguise as an old man.
