Ex-couples Karan Patel-Kamya Punjabi and Divyanka Tripathi-Ssharad Malhotra, who had an ugly break up this year, will be seen playing against each other in the new season of celebrity Box Cricket League (BCL).

Karan, now married to Ankita Bhargava, was reportedly the co-owner of Kamya's team last season. But this year, the actor will be playing in the opposite team.

When asked about the "Yeh Hai Mohabbatein" actor being the co-owner of Kamya's team, the latter told The Times of India: "The person you are talking about was never the owner or the co-owner. The team was mine and will always be mine."

Even Divyanka and Ssharad, who were in the same team last year, will be seen in different teams this year. 

"We had fun last year as a team and I hope it'll be more fun as rivals," Ssharad told the daily.

BCL, co-owned by Balaji Telefilms' head honcho Ekta Kapoor, will see popular TV celebs taking part in the cricket tournament. 

According to a report on India-Forums, a few changes have been made to the format of the tournament this season.

"Ekta Kapoor wants all the popular faces of her shows to be a part of this tournament. She wants each team to have the following type of players - 7 popular faces i.e. lead actors with more than 250 episodes. The rest (4) will consist of other actors with more than 500 episodes," a source told the web portal.
