The Legends League Cricket and Kapil Dev’s Khushii Foundation have joined hands to support girl child education, with legends from 10 countries coming together to feature in a special benefit match between India Maharajas and World Giants at Edhten Gardens in Kolkata, on September 15. The game will help the charitable cause by raising money. In 2003, Kapil Dev, the captain of the 1983 World Cup-winning team, founded the Khushii Foundation, an NGO.

The Legends League Cricket will be contested for the first time in India on September 1 and will be staged in five different locations. The finals will be held on October 8.

The goal of the NGO is to provide kids access to high-quality education and all-around learning. “We all own NGO KHUSHII and its project. We want to do a lot for girls in India, therefore I’m happy and thrilled to see so many renowned cricketers playing for such a wonderful cause so that girls may have possibilities in life “said Kapil Dev.

“For the sake of the female child in our nation, I believe it is essential that we band together, and I hope that we will all do so. In 12 states, we are already teaching 46,000 kids and transforming their lives. Although we have made progress, there is still more to be done “He went on to say.

Legends League Cricket’s founder and chairman, Vivek Khushalani, stated: “Legends League Cricket is really happy to announce that we will provide financial assistance to Khushii, a non-governmental organization that sponsors children’s education and works for their overall development. I consider it an honor to support cricket legend Kapil Dev’s idea.” No other cause could be more appropriate to launch the league since our goal is to amuse our audience while simultaneously bringing about constructive social change. I’m delighted that we can achieve this.
