Mr. Amitabh Bachhan
“I am looking forward to Legends League Cricket celebrating the legends of Cricket from all across the world and bringing alive the old rivalries for us to relive the nostalgia. I believe it will be a great spectacle for all cricket fans, especially those who did not get an opportunity to see them play live earlier. I have had the opportunity to play cricket in my younger days and also to commentate with some of the greats of the game, but now to become the face of such a wonderful initiative gives me an incredible feeling. To have these legends of the game, who have given us such beautiful moments of happiness and pride, back on the field again, is exhilarating. Legends League Cricket will definitely present itself as an excellent opportunity for the Legends and their ardent fans like me to connect again.”
Ms. Jhulan Goswami

“Legends League Cricket as a platform aims to promote and support women empowerment through sport. And our Women Empowerment Ambassador Jhulan Goswami is the perfect role model in that endeavour. As an Indian international cricketer and former captain of the Indian Women’s cricket team, Jhulan Goswami has been a celebrated international cricketer for 20 years and is a legend of the sport. From her international debut at 19 years old, she went on to become the highest wicket taker in women’s cricket, and is still going strong at 39. She has been a mentor to young talent in the team and for women everywhere, and we are honoured to have her on-board at Legends League Cricket. Legends like Jhulan inspire future generations to take up the beloved sport and keep the cricketing fever alive.”

Mr. Vivek Khushalani
Founder & Chairman - Legends League Cricket
“I am absolutely delighted that we are launching this unique league. It is aimed at not just promoting the sport and giving cricket fans an exciting new concept to get behind, but also to encourage the ecosystem of ex-sportspersons, retired support staff, and people behind the scenes who earned livelihoods through the sport, to continue their association with this beautiful game called Cricket. Personally, I have been a huge cricket fan! Legends League Cricket is like a dream come true for the ardent supporters of this game like me. I am looking forward to the thrill of old cricketing rivalries being revived on the field. In turn it will strengthen the bond of friendship off the field. Our objective is to deliver world-class cricketing action for the fans. May the best team win!”
Mr. Raman Raheja
Co-founder & CEO - Legends League Cricket
“For someone who is happy to be termed as a ‘cricket buff’, it is very heartening to see Legends League Cricket command its place as a global T20 league. It is a unique blend of legendary ex-cricketers playing competitive cricket in the most sought after format in today’s world. The league combines nostalgia of the past with the excitement of the shortened format of the game, evolving into a unique spectacle for cricket fans from across all age-groups. The idea is two fold – to provide entertainment to cricket lovers as well as provide additional commercial opportunities for ex-cricketers, support staff, commentators, or administrative resources. I am excited to be able to help bring this idea to life as it promises to provide world-class cricket played by legends of the game - nothing short of a dream come true for a ‘cricket buff’!”
