Adani Sportsline, a part of Adani Group, has made a landmark foray into franchise cricket by acquiring the rights to own and operate a franchise in UAE's flagship T20 league. Licensed by Emirates Cricket Board, the UAE T20 League is an annual event featuring six franchise teams competing in a 34-match event. Top players from all the cricket playing countries are expected to be in the line-up of different teams. Khalid Al Zarooni, UAE's T20 League chairman, said: "It is a proud moment for us to announce the Adani Group's association with the UAE's T20 League as a Franchise team owner. This acquisition fits perfectly in the group of corporates who have already acquired franchise team rights in the League."
"We are excited to be part of the UAE T20 league," said Pranav Adani. "The UAE is an amazing amalgamation of cricket loving nations. It provides an excellent platform for enhancing the visibility of cricket as the sport goes increasingly global. Our presence here is also a great base for the Adani brand that is contributing significantly to the sports ecosystem in India," he said.
