In order to leave its imprint on the cricketing world, Saudi Arabia is reportedly getting ready to host the “World’s Richest T20 League” T20 cricket event.
Executives and team owners from the Indian Premier League are currently debating the idea. However, it should be noted that the BCCI Cricket in India forbids Indian cricketers from taking part in foreign competitions.
Following its ventures into golf and Formula 1, Greg Barclay, the head of the International Cricket Council, stated that Saudi Arabia plans to invest in franchise cricket.
Cricket, in Barclay’s opinion, may be a desirable alternative for Saudi Arabia given their expanding interest in sports. Given its regional prominence, cricket appears to be a sensible sport in which the nation is eager to invest.
It is noteworthy that Pakistani cricketing star Wasim Akram met with Prince Saud bin Mishal Al Saud, the head of the Saudi Arabian Cricket Federation, to talk about the sport’s future in the kingdom, while in Riyadh.
