European Cricket: The T20 World Cup and IPL has already gone on to conclude. But the T20 fever is still going on as the European cricket tournament is underway in the continent.
The T20 World Cup saw enormous growth in terms of popularity in cricket. However, the ICC has already seen the potential in the format and they have gone on to implement it in other countries as well.
This has been done primarily for the growth of cricket as a whole in the pockets of potential. It is because of the influence of the BCCI that ICC is working hard on the growth of the cricket brand.
There are many places like Northern America, South America, Eastern Europe, Central Asia where the potential is huge for the growth of cricket. And the International Cricket Council has decided to act upon the growth of games in these regions.
They have gone on to sanction many mini T20 leagues in these places for the growth of cricket. One such example is the European cricket League which is growing rapidly in the region ever since its inception.
Moreover, the ICC is regularly conducting matches between different clubs and teams every week. The matches are constantly taking place in popular destinations like Barcelona, Italy and various other places. This move from the ICC will certainly reap fruits for the growth of cricket in the coming years.

A unique incident occurred during a European cricket League match recently. Two teams were facing each other in the T20 format game. However, a Cyprus batsman got out in the most bizarre and unfortunate way during the coveted club match.
The batsman went on to play a half-hearted lap shot and he completely mistimed the shot. The ball then went on to hit the wicketkeeper helmet and it went on to travel far. However, a fielder inside the circle got hold of the ball and the batsman was given out.
