APL Cricket – Andhra Pradesh Premier League by ACA

ACA to launch Andhra Pradesh Premier League

Following the conception of Tamil Nadu Premier League by the Tamil Nadu cricket association, other states too have started following the suit. Andhra Pradesh is the newest entrant to join this elite club of states with their own version of the Indian Premier League.

One can say that this was only a matter of time, considering that the Board of Control for Cricket in India has already given its permission to the affiliated State Associations to host cricket tournaments like the IPL.

The concept has already picked a lot of traction in Tamil Nadu and a similar trend is also expected in Andhra Pradesh. The core premise is to take the high octane action of cricket to the rural masses by hosting matches in their areas. The Andhra Cricket Association is looking to secure the stadiums in 13 districts, most of which are in the rural places.

With fields in areas like Perecherla in Guntur district, Venkatgiri in Nellore district, Kadapa, Ongole and so on, the people here have the perfect opportunity to watch matches in person. Moreover, local companies and institutions are also being lured for sponsorship purposes.

Temporary flood lights will also be installed at the venues, along with bringing in local musicians and dancers to entertain the crowds.

While the number of franchises remains undecided, the expected figure should be around six to eight. The association is also eager to bring in a few national players in order to generate popularity. The tournament window will not be more than 20 days, and will not collide with the BCCI calendar or the domestic cricket calendar.

Needless to mention, this is going to be an action packed, colorful extravaganza of cricket. The next few weeks will give us a clear picture of the franchises and the players. Follow this space for more updates on this front.
