Major League Cricket is yet another T20 league that is being started in July and it will happen in the United States of America and this league will be way more important than most of the other leagues in the world because this is the first true chance to get Americans invested in cricket and if this league is successful in grabbing eyeballs then the future of cricket will be something like never before. Therefore the success of Major League Cricket is essential for the entire cricket community.

Let’s talk about this in more detail and look how it can be successful in its first season because as many countries play cricket as possible then it will be better for the sport as well.

Cricket has yet to find its potential in the USA because the people there confuse it with baseball and it is time to showcase that cricket is much more entertaining and more thrilling than baseball. Firstly the difference between these 2 similar sports has to be shown to the common public in that nation. And then the broadcast should be made available to all homes in America and it is a great thing that a lot of the top cricketers in the world will be coming to play cricket in this league.

The fact that the owners of these 6 Teams are from the IPL as Kolkata Knight Riders group owns the Los Angeles Knight Riders and then Mumbai Indians family owns the MI New York team and similarly Chennai Super Kings group owns the Texas Super Kings team. And the other teams are from San Francisco, Seattle and Washington. These 6 Teams will play in the tournament which will start from 13th July and from 2024 each team will have its home ground and then it will build towards the T20I World Cup in USA next year.

The success of this league will establish a new market for cricket in India and just like Formula 1, the Major League Cricket will have to take the help of Hollywood stars as well as Sports stars from other countries because on it’s own it will not be able to reach that number of people as with the help of stars and they should try to play the most entertaining brand of cricket and the T20 format is the best Possible format. Players like Jason Roy, Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, Adam Zampa, Martin Guptil, Rilee Roussouw and Lockie Ferguson will play for the LA Knight Riders. Then for MI New York there will be Tim David, Kieron Pollard, Nicholas Pooran, Trent Boult, Kagiso Rabada and Rashid Khan. And for Texas Super Kings Faf Du Plessis, Ambati Rayadu, David Miller, Devon Conway, Dwayne Bravo, Daniel Sams and Mitchell Santner will play. So a plethora of the top cricketers will play in this league.
