We have created a completely new category with Legends League Cricket and I am happy that we have been able to position ourselves as a logical extension to active cricket as 2nd innings for Legends. With top names headlining in our league, who are already in some capacity or the others connected to various current leagues around the world, we will be seeing more big names joining the league in the upcoming season.”Ravi Shastri Commissioner, Legends League Cricket – “We expected this kind of reach, with 80 legends playing such a competitive league, it is a treat for the fans as well.
