Latest Cricket News: In a big development in cricket, we may soon see some of the game’s former international legends return to action. In March of next year, a T20 tournament dubbed the ‘Legend Cricket League’ is planned to take place in the United Arab Emirates. Despite the fact that the event’s organisers haven’t provided many specifics, they have provided a general concept of the tournament’s format.
“Every year, the League would be played twice. The league will be played in a Tri-series format in the first season, with an Indian team, an Asian team, and a Rest of the World team competing against each other. This would imply that the three teams would meet each other twice in the league rounds before the top two teams faced a battle in the grand decider,” they noted in a news statement. The tournament is not likely to be a one-off, since it is planned to take place twice a year.
The brainstorming meetings were quite exciting for us: Vivek Khushalani
The tournament’s co-founder and promoter, Vivek Khushalani, revealed the thinking behind the notion. He stated that seeing iconic cricketers return to the field would be a dream come true for many fans around the world.
He remarked, “Reflecting on the same,” “We were ecstatic during the brainstorming meetings, and the prospect of watching Legends play for Team India again gave us a different high. We have spent our lives as sports fans watching them play and win matches for India, and with LLC, billions of people will be able to relive those dreams,” Khushalani said.”
Which former cricketers might be eligible to participate in the Legends Cricket League?
The event’s organisers have not revealed any information regarding the players who may compete in the competition. They did say, however, that the list includes several elite former international cricketers from India, South Africa, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Australia, and England.
Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, Yuvraj Singh, Sanath Jayasuriya, Tillakaratne Dilshan, Brian Lara, Jonty Rhodes, Kevin Pietersen, Makhaya Ntini, Monty Panesar, and other ex-cricketers who have played in the Road Safety World Series could be among the few big names who could appear in the tournament.
However, it should be emphasised that the above list is merely an estimate, and we will have to wait for the organisers to announce the final official list of players once all of the tournament’s important aspects have been confirmed.
