The tamil nadu cricket association (TNCA) is attempting to make certain that lovers in thestate are not deprived of t20 cricket in the absence of chennai super kings – the iIndian Premier League (IPL) franchise that is serving a two-years suspension within the ipl spot-fixing case
According to a report in espncricinfo,TNCA has determined to take t20 cricket to the district degree through its new task and discover younger expertise.
The said league, which was reportedly proposed by the axed BCCI president N Srinivasan, is likely to be an eight-team event to be held sometime during September and only players registered with TNCA will be allowed to participate.
“We are not having [any IPL matches], so we thought ‘okay, let us do this for our boys.’ T20 has become the order of the day, whether you like it or not. So we wanted to jump into the bandwagon,” TNCA secretary Kasi Viswanathan told ESPNcricinfo.
“Matches will be played in two venues – Chennai and Dindigul,” he added.
Former india pacer laxmipathy balaji said the league will especially assist promising cricketers out of chennai.
“Most of the time they [district players] don’t have much exposure before they play at the state level. A professional league such as this would bridge the gap.
“This would also give the selectors access to talent that may not always be spotted,” he told the website.
