Maniesh met all the players and shared a lot of stories with them and made them laugh. He also encouraged and praised them and had a great time with all the players.

Not only that Maniesh also tried to play cricket, blindfolded and managed to hit a few strokes. He told the players that it was much more difficult than normal cricket and the way they enjoy this game is really commendable. “I did manage to hit a few strokes blindfolded. But hat’s off to all those players for playing the game so wonderfully. I really salute them for playing the game. Cricket is not an easy game but they are all so good. I was really amazed by their game and enjoyed meeting them," shared the actor-host. 


On the professional front, Maniesh has been busy hosting a lot of shows like Idol and Nach Baliye 9 last year. He will soon be seen hosting Sa Re Ga Ma Pa and is looking forward to doing more interesting work this year.
