“Cricket Canada is thrilled to announce the return of the Global T20, which is ready to entertain fans with exciting matches and some of the industry’s best names,” he said.

Rashpal stated that the board is keen to enhance the playing experience for players in the country and inspire a new generation of cricketers in the upcoming third edition.

It is pertinent to mention here that six franchises will participate in the 18-day tournament, with each team comprising 16 players, making a total of 25 matches in the edition.
