Here is the list of current Tamil Nadu Premier League teams owners.
Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL) is a stage for the young cricketers to showcase their talent. Since the games are telecasted, scouts from various IPL side take notes of their displays and sign them during the auction.
Last season, Siechem Madurai Panthers spinner Varun Chakravarthy was unplayable throughout the tournament. He played a significant part in Madurai’s league triumph last season. Witnessing his talent, Kings XI Punjab signed him for Rs 8.40 crore. Even though he was not up to scratch, there is no dubiety over his bowling skills, which can escalate while training with some of the world’s best.
Washington Sundar was well-known even before his Tamil Nadu Premier League debut, but he was totally dominant. His performances in this league prompted Royal Challengers Bangalore to break the bank.
