Shah Rukh Khan has now bought a team in the United States Cricket League. The team is named as Los Angeles night riders, continuing his series in ownership of Trinbago Knight in the Caribbean Premier League and Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League.
In a statement to the Mumbai Mirror, SRK said, “For several years now, we have been expanding the Knight Riders brand globally, and closely watching the potential for T20 cricket in the USA. We are convinced that Major League Cricket has all the pieces in place to execute on its plans and we look forward to making our partnership an enormous success in the coming years.”
The US cricket league is all set to deliver the best to the cricket loving US fans. The League is expected to start from 2022. The league is going to feature top international cricket players from India and the world. Certain reports state that there are going to a total of 6 teams, namely, New York, San Francisco, Washington DC, Dallas, Chicago and Los Angeles. This massive investment in American Cricket is sure to expand the Knight Riders franchise of Shah Rukh Khan and also appease the Indian diaspora residing in the US.
