"T10 Cricket is emerging as a hugely loved global format, and with the Northern Warriors being a team of sportsmen from all across the globe, this sponsorship perfectly complements our brand ZEE5 given its global composition. The timing also couldn’t have been better as we’ve just launched ZEE5 in 190+ countries with our campaign ‘Dil Se Desi’, for the South Asian diaspora, and it’s a great connect,” she added. 

Mohomed Morani, Managing Director, Northern Warriors, said, “The T10 Cricket format is like a 90-minute entertainment thriller with huge mass appeal, and is seeing even more success in its second season than it did in its first." 

"With the largest width and depth of multi-lingual content across a range of genres, ZEE5 is all set to take the world by storm, too as the largest digital destination for language content. Therefore, we couldn’t think of a better sponsor to come onboard to help further drive the success of the Northern Warriors,” added Morani.
