Star Sports on Monday announced a special week-long series -- Champions Ka Champion -- in celebration of India’s spectacular victory at the ICC Champions Trophy last month.

Starting on Monday at 8 p.m. on Star Cricket, each episode will focus on Indian stars and their thoughts on this feat.

The series will culminate on India captain M.S. Dhoni’s birthday on July 7 with a special episode on the skipper himself and his journey as a leader over the years.

The first show will be anchored by cricketer-turned-analyst, Navjot Singh Sidhu, wherein he would take viewers through a fascinating voyage of how India went from strength to strength during an unbeaten run in the event.

This will be followed by episodes containing exclusive chat-ups with Shikhar Dhawan (July 2) and Dinesh Karthik (July 3).

The fourth episode will carry interviews with other Team India stars like Ravindra Jadeja, Rohit Sharma, R Ashwin, Virat Kohli, Umesh Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Ishant Sharma followed by a special episode on Dhoni.
