IPL franchise Kolkata Knight Riders has already set foot outside the country in the cricket business. This time the Knight Brigade is going to set foot in Britain. The England and Wales Cricket Board has taken the initiative to launch a 100-ball franchise league. Kolkata Knight Riders CEO and co-captain Venki Mysore himself sparked the speculation on Wednesday. “If we get the right offer in the British franchise league, we will think about buying a team there as well,” he said.
Seeing the popularity of IPL and Big Bash, this time England Cricket Board is going to bring Cricket League in their country. However, this franchise league is not for twenty overs, this franchise league will be held for 100 balls. The franchise league has already been named 'The Hundred'.
The league was scheduled to be held in June-July this year. But the league has been pushed back due to a global epidemic caused by the corona virus. As a result, the England Cricket Board has suffered huge financial losses. That is why the ECB is going to give concessions on foreign investment next year. And using this opportunity, Kolkata Knight Riders Pvt. Ltd. is going to buy a team in 'The Hundred' league.
