With this, the deserving players will be able to showcase their talent on a digital platform and sponsors will get the decent exposure to their brands investing in the event,” said Aamir Akhtar, ZSM Managing Director.
Kantipur Gurkhas, led by national team veteran spinner Basanta Regmi, will kick off the tournament with the match against Vishal Warriors on the opening day. The round-robin league will see 15 games, while the top two finishers will play for title.
