T20 cricket is a lucrative form of cricket that has millions of fans across the world. The popularity of T20 leagues spread fast after India won the inaugural World T20 in 2007. That said, see below for some of the best T20 leagues in the world.
Vitality T20 Blast
This league has produced some great cricketing action over the years. Although it is not a franchised T20 league, rather a local cricket league, it is a haven for great cricketing action. Over the years, it has managed to attract some overseas stars such as Rashid Khan and Dwayne Bravo.
Caribbean Premier League (CPL)
The CPL is perhaps the world’s most exciting cricket league. With six teams battling for the top spot, the CPL guarantees an explosive environment for any spectator. With big names, including the West Indies captain Jason Holder, the CPL 2020 is a tournament you do not want to miss.
Pakistan Super League
Just three competitions old, the Pakistan Super League is one of the most attractive leagues in the world. Just like the CPL, six teams battle it out against each other for the top spot. Although the league is Pakistani, a great deal of the action takes place in the UAE, with only two to three matches played in Pakistan.
Big Bash League (BBL)
BBL is an Australian franchise that was established in 2011 by Cricket Australia. Even though the number of international stars in this league is not as high as in other top leagues, the cricketing action is brilliant. Over the years, it has been used as a platform for young players to display their talent.
The Indian Premier League (IPL)
Arguably the best T20 league worlds over, the IPL is credited for bringing top talent to the cricket world. The IPL is a ten-team affair that lasts two months. The buzz around this tournament makes it one of the most popular sporting festivals for Indian fans.
