New cricket league starts with STATSCORE’s data
Cricket enthusiasts in the US have something exciting to look forward to as the inaugural season of Major League Cricket (MLC) is set to begin on July 13.
The new T20 cricket league aims to bring this spectacular sport to new heights in North America. The MLC hopes to join the ranks of the world’s top leagues like the Indian Premier League, The Hundred, and the Big Bash League.
The launch of pro cricket in the US is seen as an important step in building the sport’s position in a country where American football, baseball, and basketball take the top spots in terms of popularity. The MLC has received official sanctioning from USA Cricket and will be operated by American Cricket Enterprises.
