Major League Cricket USA
Cricket is a popular sport with a big following worldwide, but in the United States, it hasn’t received as much attention. However, things are about to change with the introduction of Major League Cricket (MLC), a new professional cricket league that aims to make cricket more popular in America.
What is Major League Cricket?
It’s a professional Twenty20 cricket league that will have six teams representing major U.S. cities like Texas, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, San Francisco, Seattle, and Washington. The league is run by American Cricket Enterprises (ACE) and approved by USA Cricket, which is the governing body for cricket in the USA.
The first season of MLC will take place over three weeks, from July 13 to July 30, 2023, at two different venues in Texas and North Carolina. The league will feature top players from around the world, as well as domestic cricketers who have shown their skills in (MiLC), the development league for MLC that completed its first season in 2021.
Why is Major League Cricket important?
Well, it’s a huge step forward for cricket in the USA. It will help cricket reach new and larger audiences, increase the number of fans and players, and build the necessary infrastructure and talent pool for the sport in the country. Additionally, MLC will benefit the U.S. national teams by providing them with exposure, experience, and the chance to compete against some of the best players globally. It will also aid USA Cricket in its goal of becoming a full member of the International Cricket Council (ICC) and hosting major global events in the future.
