Mumbai:

A team of documentary filmmakers from the United Kingdom are in India to shoot the behind-the-scene action of the lucrative Indian Premier League.

The filmmakers have obtained permission from the BCCI to shoot for only two games, Wednesday's match in Mumbai and then in Kolkata.

"A lot of people are worried about the future of Test cricket which is attracting less number of people. (Australian Test opener) Ed Cowan is a friend of ours and we followed him during his debut Test series against India. To talk about India you need to come here and that's why we are here to film what happens behind the IPL," said the documentary's producer Sam Collins.

Collins said the team has already talked to some former Indian cricketers, including Ravi Shastri and the just-retired Rahul Dravid and got their views on the matter.

"We will be talking to N Srinivasan (BCCI president) and others," he added.

The documentary will be of a duration of 90-minutes and Collins is hopeful of airing it in the UK as well as in India on TV channels and also in film theatres.
