He hasn’t officially released Champion to the public, but is hoping to before the Twenty20 World Cup in March.

“It’s great that we are involving the subcontinental community in Melbourne in the Big Bash, so I’m looking forward to it.”

Sharda said Wednesday’s festivities included bindis being distributed, the red dot worn in the middle of the forehead, henna painting and maybe even an appearance of an elephant.

Bravo said he was looking forward to the game against the Sixers, a tough opponent who have a very good team. He is hopeful the Renegades can carry on their from their last over win against Brisbane.

“I want the entire stadium to be singing Champion … when I come out to bat, have a bowl or take a catch,” Bravo said.

Etihad Stadium will host Wednesday’s Bollywood bash with the match starting at 7.10pm.
