The Legends Cricket League, a professional cricket league for former star cricketers, has announced that the League’s maiden season will be held in January 2022 at Al Amerat Cricket Stadium in Oman. The just finished ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 was co-hosted at Al Amerat Cricket Stadium in Oman, with Dubai, Sharjah, and Abu Dhabi as the other three venues. Former cricketers, known as legends of the game, will compete in a global league that aims to become a global professional league where legends can relive old rivalries on the field. The League will officially begin its journey on a worldwide stage with Oman as the host nation.

“It is a privilege for Oman Cricket to host the game’s legends. This will be a huge event for Oman Cricket. Such a meeting of famous cricketers is unusual in Oman, and I am confident that this is only the beginning, presenting Oman Cricket with an entirely new chance. We at Oman Cricket will provide the greatest hospitality to the Legends while they thrill the spectators with cricket,” said Pankaj Khimji, Chairman of Oman Cricket.

“We see our League as an opportunity to promote Cricket in new destinations,” said Ravi Shastri, Commissioner of Legends League Cricket. Oman was the finest option out of all the possibilities. It would be a fantastic start to a new adventure.”

“Oman has proven its validity as a world-class international site and host in the T20 World Cup,” said Raman Raheja, co-founder and CEO of Legends League Cricket. “We felt it would be the greatest place for the League to start with. I am confident that we will have a terrific event, and that all of the players will enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime experience.”

This will be the first time such huge names have played in Oman, and it might be a once-in-a-lifetime experience for Oman’s cricket fans. “We are looking forward to the League being hosted in Oman,” stated Vivek Khushalani, Chairman of the Legends League Cricket. It is a new international cricket destination, and this event will help to solidify their status. It’s not every day that you get the chance to bring together such legends in one place.”

Former cricketers from India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Australia, England, and other cricketing nations will be grouped into three teams representing India, Asia, and the rest of the world in the first season of LLC. Ravi Shastri was appointed Commissioner of the League last week after serving as the Indian Cricket Team’s Head Coach.
