The T20 franchise based tournament will witness five teams in its inaugural season having over 35 overseas players across 10 nations representing different teams and battling it out to emerge on the top. The launch of the Afghanistan Premier League will also give a chance to some emerging players to play against and alongside the world’s best players.

Speaking about the association, Discovery Communications India senior VP and general manager - South Asia Karan Bajaj said, “We are excited to partner with Afghanistan Cricket Board to broadcast the inaugural edition of Afghanistan Cricket League in India. We expect huge traction for the league given the presence of super stars of cricket and the fact all the matches will be played at prime time in India.”
