Former Indian pacer S Sreesanth is set to play T20 league next month plans to host by the Kerala Cricket Association (KCA).
Kerala Cricket Association Organise T20 League
Kerala Cricket Association aims to conduct a T20 league in Alappuzha next month which will mark the return of the former India international.
After Jharkhand, Andhra Pradesh, and Puducherry, KCA is planning to conduct a local T20 tournament. However, the event is subject to clear by the state government. Sreesanth will be the star attraction of the tournament whose dates are yet to be finalised.
The quick bowler with 87 Test wickets and two World Cup titles was banned by the Board of Management for Cricket in India for his alleged involvement within the IPL spot-fixing scandal in 2013.
Sreesanth returns to play T20 league
Sreesanth’s participation in the upcoming President’s Cup has confirmed by the KCA President Sajan K. Varghese.
“Yes, definitely. Sreesanth will be an attraction. Every player will be in a bio-bubble in one hotel in Alappuzha. We are looking at the first week of December. The clearance from the Kerala government is the main thing,” Sportstar quoted Varghese as saying.
Fantasy sports activities platform Dream11, which has been a part of the opposite hyperlocal T20 leagues, is on board for the Kerala occasion, too. “With the assist of Dream11, it’s a league format that we’ve deliberate. All the groups, from completely different age-groups, are from Kerala,” he stated.
Because the T20 league has been a hit within the strict bio-secure setting in different states, the clearance might simply be a formality.
Regardless of a surge in COVID-19 numbers in Kerala, the restoration charge stays the very best in comparison with different states.
The Kerala speedster was one of the prominent talents in the Indian dressing room. He featured in the Indian squad that won the ICC T20 World Cup in 2007. Four years later, he became a part of the Indian team where India lifted the 2011 Cricket World Cup at home.
