New Delhi: Indian cricketers Parthiv Patel and Irfan Pathan are set to make a cameo appearance on the small screen with comedy show `Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah`.

The show has the Gokuldham Premier League (GPL) - a cricket tournament - and the cricketers will be joining the cast for one episode each.

They will cheer the two teams of GPL. While Patel will be seen Thursday, Pathan will make an appearance on the episode to be aired July 7, said a press statement from the channel.

"`Taarak Mehta...` is a complete family entertainment serial. It is one of the only TV shows that all of us enjoy watching together as a family. Daya bhabhi is definitely my favourite character in the show. I love her innocence and spirit," said Pathan.

Patel too is excited about being on the show.

"I am thoroughly enjoying the GPL season running on the show and very curious to find out who among the teams will win," he said.

The show is based on a popular column called `Duniya Ne Undha Chasma` written by Gujarati writer Taarak Mehta. It is about everyday lives of families living in a society called Gokuldham.
