This is the first time that the tournament is getting this worldwide coverage and the production will be handled by the Maq Group. Chairman Mahammad Qureshi sees this globalisation of the tournament as key to making it a great success. “We have decided to go into the living rooms of many people across the world, all in an effort to give our tournament that added exposure. We want to show the cricketing world that we are right up there in terms of taking our space and that cricket is alive and well under the banner of CCUSA.”
