Being first-of-its-kind, Blitz T-20 will be an International level cricket league based in India that would allow non-established players from both- India and International countries to play under the same banner, bringing excitement and fun to the sport of cricket. As per the team of Blitz T-20, they are in talks with several big brands who are willing to collaborate with the league in terms of sponsorship. Keeping the fact in mind that October falls under the festive season, they have decided to organise the tournament during that time so that people do not miss out any entertainment related to sports.
Talking about the need to launch a cricket league, Lalit Nishad, CEO of the Blitz T-20 stated "I felt the need to start a league like Blitz T-20 because I myself has been a cricketer and I understand the pain that young talented players feel when they, for some reasons, do not get the opportunity to play in some of the big league or to represent themselves in the National Cricket team. Through Blitz T-20, we aim to provide a robust and a credible platform for not only non-established Indian Players but also for international players who have played in several domestic leagues as well as county cricket."
As of now, Blitz T-20 have received several applications from players across several countries who are willing to showcase their exceptional cricketing skills. With the passing of time, the management is likely to make several announcements regarding the league.
