Singapore T20 League will be held from 1-15 July in 2021
The top cricketing stars (men’s and women’s players) are set to participate in Singapore next year during country’s inaugural Singapore T10 cricket league. Singapore Cricket Association (SCA) has confirmed that the country will host the league in July next year, dates also confirmed by SCA (from 1 to 15 July, 2021). The organisers said that franchise teams from India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, UK, China & Bangladesh will take part in the league. It means the tournament will provide an opportunity to witness a virtual India-Pakistan contest. SCA has also awarded the marketing and organizing rights for the T10 cricket league to Dubai-based company, that was also involved in Lankan Premier League.
All franchises will be offered two teams – one men’s and one women’s with single team management and both men and women cricketers will have their practice session together.
The league is scheduled to be held from July 1 to 15, 2021 at the Singapore Sports Hub – fully integrated sports, entertainment and lifestyle hub, in Kallang, Singapore. This is the first T10 league where both men and women’s teams will be participating. The first year will have six teams in the fray and the number will be increased to eight teams from the third year onwards.
There’s a consideration that teams may carry name of various regions in different countries, although it is not finalised yet but one thing is confirmed that teams will have ownership from India and Pakistan which will create a virtual India vs Pakistan contest during the league.This will allow women players from smaller teams to learn from their male counterparts and top coaches. Idea is to have one male and one female coach along with gender-balanced support staff for the teams.
