Former India head coach Ravi Shastri has been inducted as the commissioner of the Legends League Cricket (LLC) for retired players, starting in January next year. The first season of LLC is scheduled to be held in a Gulf country in January next year. Shastri, who completed his coach’s stint with the Indian cricket team, said, “It feels great to be associated with cricket, especially with the legends of the game who have been their champions.”
“It’s going to be a lot of fun with serious cricket as well. These stalwarts don’t have to prove anything again, but their reputation will be at stake. I can assure you, it will be interesting to see how they do justice to it. The 59-year-old former player said, “I am extremely thrilled to be a part of Legends League Cricket.”
“This is a unique initiative and we see a very bright future for it. The league will feature former cricketers from India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Australia, England, representing teams from India, Asia and the rest of the world. Andrew Leipus, former physiotherapist of the Indian team, is associated with it as director (sports science). He will take care of the fitness of the players associated with the league.
