COVID-19: National leg cricket league indefinitely postponed

34

New Delhi, April 3 | Leg cricket is an emerging sport that has made its mark with young athletes all over India. While it isnt just as popular as the game of cricket, it derives inspiration from the game. Leg cricket has its own rules and is played in a completely different format to its namesake. The upcoming league was to be organised in July, but considering the situation of the pandemic that the world is facing right now, the league has been postponed until further notice.

Speaking on the postponement of the league Jogender Prasad Verma, General Secretary, Leg Cricket Federation of India, said, “First of all I want to urge everyone to follow the government’s instructions, please stay at home and stay healthy by maintaining your fitness. We aim to resume as soon as the situation gets better and due to the unforeseen situation of the pandemic, we had to postpone the league, indefinitely. We, however, are hoping that once the pandemic is under control we will be able to undertake the national championship.”

Expressing his thoughts on the current scenario, Indian captain, Chandan Ray, said, “This situation is definitely heartbreaking, but what the world is going through at the moment is definitely to be taken into perspective. While the news of the league getting delayed is saddening I have made sure to keep the morale of my entire team high, and not to lose hope as we will all bounce back from this situation.”

Leg cricket replaces the function of using a cricket bat by using the players run as a tool to score runs, the batsman becomes a legsman in the official jargon of leg cricket. The Indian team led by Chandan Ray marched their way to victory in the first-ever international series held under the aegis of International Leg Cricket Council. The support that the national team has got is only growing with each passing day and the captain is confident that it will soon be a part of the mainstream sporting calendar in the coming years.
