Saudi Arabia has reportedly proposed the creation of the world’s most expensive T20 cricket league. The Indian Premier League (IPL) owners have reportedly held talks with the Saudi government about creating this league, which could potentially change the global cricket landscape.
According to media reports, the league’s rules may be relaxed based on the recommendations of Saudi Arabian authorities, which could allow Indian players to participate, despite the BCCI’s restrictions on Indian players playing in other leagues.
Talks for this league reportedly began a year ago, and the ICC chairman, Greg Barkley, has mentioned that Saudi Arabia is interested in investing in cricket. While the United Arab Emirates (UAE) is currently the preferred destination for cricket, Saudi authorities are optimistic that their country could soon become a major player in the cricketing world.
The new league could potentially attract top players from around the world, especially from India and Pakistan, who are known for their love of cricket. However, it remains to be seen how successful the league will be and what impact it could have on the global cricket scene.
