Maharaja Trophy T20 to be held in Bengaluru from August 15 onwards

All the matches will take place at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, given that the stadium is equipped with state-of-the-art drainage system

Karnataka State Cricket Association (KSCA) on June 21 (Friday) announced that the third edition of the Maharaja Trophy T20 will be played between August 15 and September 1. The announcement was made in the presence of Raghuram Bhat, President of KSCA, BK Sampath Kumar, Commissioner of Maharaja Trophy and Vice-President of KSCA, Joint Secretary Shavir Tarapore and Chief Guest and Indian cricketing legend EAS Prasanna, along with the respective franchise representatives.

All the matches will be played at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru. The decision to play all the matches in Bengaluru is believed to be taken as the onset of the southwest is likely to washout matches in other cities like Hubbali and Mysuru as they do not have state-of-the-art drainage systems like the Chinnaswamy Stadium has.

With modern technology, it is understood that there would be minimum stoppage of play if all the matches were held in Bengaluru.

“We are thrilled to bring back the Maharaja Trophy KSCA T20 for its third edition. This year’s tournament is set to be the most exciting yet, with a fantastic lineup of teams and players. We are committed to providing a platform for both seasoned and emerging talent to showcase their skills, and we believe this event will be a great celebration of the rich legacy of cricket in Karnataka," Raghuram Bhat, President of KSCA, said.

Hubli Tigers, pipped Mysuru Warriors in the final last year. Other teams like Gulbarga Mystics, Bengaluru Blasters, the Mangaluru Dragons and Shivamogga Lions, will also compete in this edition of the tournament and look to get their hands on the coveted trophy.
