The matches in USA's Minor League Cricket 2021 will be played across seven different venues and will be played only at the weekends. The tournament features 218 T20 matches and is termed as America’s first-ever nationwide T20 Championship.
Minor League Cricket (MiLC) has already managed to get on board some of the international cricketers like Corey Anderson (ex New Zealand), Sami Aslam (ex Pakistan), Rahkeem Cornwall (West Indies), Dane Piedt (ex-South Africa) and Shehan Jayasuriya (ex Sri Lanka). Former India U-19 cricketer Smit Patel will also be in action.
Half-century from Pakistan captain Babar Azam and skillful bowling by off-spinner Mohammad Hafeez guided visitors to a thrilling seven-run win over West Indies in the second T20I at the Providence Stadium here at Guyana on Saturday.

After finishing the series between India and Sri Lanka, Prithvi Shaw and Suryakumar Yadav are all set to fly to UK to join Virat Kohli and men for the upcoming Test series against England.

India were restricted to a low total of 81/8 in their first innings courtesy of some fine bowling performances and despite Rahul Chahar claiming three wickets, the Sri Lankan batsmen held their nerve and ensured that they successfully crossed the line and win the series with 33 balls remaining.
India are likely to field the same starting line-up as the previous game, using all the 11 players available at their disposal. Meanwhile, Sri Lanka will have received a huge confidence boost after winning the close encounter in the second game of the series.
India have had some really low totals in T20I cricket and they would be relieved that today's shambolic batting performance was good enough to help them not post their lowest ever total in the shortest version of the game.
Sri Lanka finally added to their win column in T20Is against India as they defeated a much-changed Shikhar Dhawan-led outfit in the 2nd T20I in a fairly low-scoring encounter. The win for the hosts has set up the series perfectly with both sides entering the game needing a win to secure the series. India will again miss much of their key players.
The Indian team, hit by coronavirus two days ago, with Krunal Pandya testing positive, fell to a loss in the second match, which was a low-scoring affair. With the series levelled at 1-1, both teams have all to play for in the third match.
