5 best signings of the Tamil Nadu Premier League
The Tamil Nadu Premier League is scheduled to begin next week. The trend of Twenty-20 leagues around the world started with the IPL as it popularised franchise-based cricket around the globe. The Big-Bash, The Ram Slam, The Caribbean Premier League all followed suit after the Indian Premier League changed the demography of the cricketing world.
The glamour and entertainment involved in these leagues attract people to the stadiums. Twenty-20 Leagues in the domestic circuit was no such exception. Karnataka Premier League was started by the KSCA (Karnataka Premier League) back in 2009, a year after IPL’s debut. Now, the TNCA (Tamil Nadu Cricket Association) is about to organise its inaugural Tamil Nadu Premier League. The Tamil Nadu Premier League will be broadcast by the STAR Network. Many big names are involved with the domestic league.
Let us have a look at the 5 best signings of the TNPL:
#5 Abhinav Mukund
With a prolific performance in the domestic circuit, the southpaw from Tamil Nadu will have a point to prove in the game's shortest format. Having played the IPL previously with the Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore, he would be comfortable with such matches.
Pairing up with the experienced Dinesh Karthik in the batting line-up will definitely give bowlers a run for their money. Abhinav has scored 21 centuries in his first class matches, with a career best of 300 not-out. He has played five Test matches for the Indian cricket team which includes a half century.
With International experience under his belt, he would like to make the most of the situation and score runs for his team.
