Capri Global takes centre stage among IPL names with Lucknow franchise

Press Release: Capri Global takes centre stage among IPL names with Lucknow franchise: Non-banking financial company picks Lucknow as city of choice for their home base 

Capri Global will join the Indian Premier League (IPL) when its newest version – the Women’s Premier League – takes off later this year.  

Capri GLobal in WPL

The inaugural version of the WPL is a landmark development in the history of Indian cricket, the richest board in the world. The WPL will fetch a total of US$527 million for the governing Board of Control for Cricket in India. 

Five cities were picked by the winners after an auction arranged at short notice in Mumbai with Capri Global picking Lucknow as their choice. Adani Sportsline (Ahmedabad), Mumbai Indians (Mumbai), Royal Challengers Bangalore (Bangalore), Delhi Capitals (New Delhi) are the other owners of the teams. 

“Lucknow holds a special place in the north of India. Although Mumbai remains our corporate headquarters for operational reasons, the northern belt of the country is also equally important from the viewpoint of our customer base,” said Rajesh Sharma, Director of Capri Global Capital Ltd, which also owns the Sharjah Warriors franchise in the inaugural six-team ILT20 being played in the UAE. 

The leading Indian Non-banking Financial Company also owns the Bengal Warriors team in Pro Kabbadi League and the Rajasthan Warriors franchise in KhoKho. 

“Capri Global’s association with WPL has been strategic in achieving our vision of encouraging sports across all strata and genders and establishing a deeper connect with our stakeholders and customers. We believe cricket is the most natural route to further that vision given its history in India,” Sharma said. 

With the amount of sale from franchise and media rights, the WPL will become the second-richest cricketing league behind the IPL only. 

Among women’s team sports in the world, the WPL will take third spot among the richest behind the Women’s NBA and the Super League football in the UK. The auction for players, with seven from overseas allowed, will happen in the first week of February at an undisclosed date yet. Registration for players has started. 

For the moment, Capri Global is content basking in the company of the highest bidder Adani Sportsline as the two non-IPL teams out of the five winners of the day. “We are happy to associate with the Women’s Premier League and extend our vision for sports in India while shining light on the women of India,” Sharma said. “With the Lucknow WPL team, we are extremely proud to be a part of this historic moment in cricket and especially in being able to extend our support to some of the most tremendously talented women in sport.” 

Viacom18 has secured the Women’s Premier League (IPL) media rights value for the 2023-2027 cycle for Rs 951 crores ($2.5 billion).

ILT20 2023 Points Table (Updated): ILT20 Standings after Match 9 Abu Dhabi Knight Riders vs Desert Vipers

Updated ILT20 2023 Points Table: International League T20 Standings after Match 9 Abu Dhabi Knight Riders vs Desert Vipers.

We saw some great cricket today in ILT20 match between ADKR vs DV.

  • A cracking century from Alex Hales,
  • a fine fifty from Colin Munro.
  • Then a brilliant display with the new ball from Sheldon Cottrell
  • Gus Atkinson as well, before Wanindu Hasaranga wowed us with his fielding and his bowling.
  • Andre Russell gave ADKR fans something to cheer about with a quickfire half-century
  • What a comprehensive win for Desert Vipers.
  • Alex Hales slammed a majestic century – The first of the tournament
  • Skipper Colin Munro hit a half-century as they posted 219
  • They were on top all throughout the match.

Andre fought with his fifty but it was too little, too late as the Vipers continued their perfect start to the tournament.

Alex Hales is of course the Player of the Match: “Incredibly special feeling. We’ve played some good cricket and to get the first hundred of a new tournament is a good feeling. It’s been a really enjoyable few years on the cricket field. I just feel that I’m a little more experience and focusing on just one format in the last few years has helped. [On hitting down the ground more] It’s been very valuable. I thought in my early 20s I was guilty of hanging back and looking to pull and cut the ball. But you have to keep working and evolving.”

Colin Munro: “Alex Hales is in brilliant form and he set the game up for us and Sheldon Cottrell has been brilliant with the new ball. Yeah Kumara was good with the new ball and I was thinking if I would get through it and yeah I got some lucky shots away but yeah once I settled in. Just need to keep pushing the guys to keep getting better. Got a great squad and great people around us so just looking forward to the next couple of games.”

Sunil Narine: “[On captaincy] When you lose it’s tough and trying to get the right combination is tough when it’s not happening. I think if you win the combination looks good. We haven’t been bowling well, struggling with the batting. [On him not bowling earlier] Just team setup and team combination, you never know what can happen. Hopefully we can get that combination, get early wickets and get that performance soon.

It’s a 111-run win for the Vipers, that takes them up to the top of the table with three wins in three matches.

Match nine of the International League T20 (ILT20) 2023 will see the Abu Dhabi Knight Riders take on the Desert Vipers. Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi will play host to this encounter. Abu Dhabi Knight Riders are struggling in the inaugural edition of the International T20 League.

They have played three games so far and lost all. Desert Vipers, meanwhile, are going nicely in the tournament. They have played two games and are unbeaten so far. Both these sides met in Dubai on Wednesday and the Vipers came out victorious. After being asked to bat first, the Knight Riders struggled as they managed to score only 133 at the end of their 20 overs.

Brandon King scored 57 at the top of the order. Wanindu Hasaranga bowled beautifully for the Vipers and picked up three wickets. In reply, Alex Hales scored 64 and was well-supported by Sam Billings (35*). They chased down the total in the 16th over.

The Vipers will be riding with confidence after that win and will look to stay unbeaten when they take the field on Friday. Nothing is going right for the Knight Riders in the competition and will have to bring out their A-game to register their first win.

ILT20 UAE Mohammad Nabi Sharjah Warriors

Exclusive Interview: Mohammad Nabi leads ILT20’s ‘Local’ Afghan contingent at Sharjah Warriors

Mohammad Nabi Sharjah Warriors

Mohammad Nabi leads ILT20’s ‘local’ Afghan contingent at Sharjah Warriors

  • All-rounder assured new league will set high standards in world franchise cricket

Sharjah, December 28: If there was ever a torch-bearer of the indomitable Afghan spirit on the cricket field, Mohammad Nabi will be the best choice. And the all-rounder is invoking the strong community presence in the UAE to come out in full support for Sharjah Warriors when the International League T20 tournament marks its debut on January 13.

The veteran statesman goes by the nickname “Mr President” given his stature as a leader of the team which has risen remarkably in the past decade and also played an aggressive brand of cricket. It took only four years for Afghanistan elevate from Associate nation status to a Full member within the International Cricket Council, and Nabi was captain of the team on the field for most of that period.

Nabi, 37, still wears his passion on his sleeve and gave up captaincy of his national team after the ICC T20 World Cup in Australia in November. Sharjah Warriors captain Moeen Ali can count on his expertise when the team takes the field especially at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium where the Afghan contingent of Nabi, Naveen-ul-Haq, Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Noor Ahmad are guaranteed boisterous support.

Sharjah is also a second home, literally, for Nabi where he trains while living in the neighbouring emirate of Ajman. Excerpts from a free-wheeling interview with the cricketer:


1) There’s lot of T20 cricket ahead for you with the ILT20 league starting in January. How excited are you to be part of the Sharjah Warriors under Moeen Ali?

The League is happening for the first time. And we are all hoping it reaches great heights. The team at Sharjah Warriors has also shaped well and seems a great combination which is a perfect fit for the conditions here in the UAE.

2) How do you see the composition of the Sharjah Warriors squad and your initial impression of the league as it is shaping up?

We have good batsmen. In the bowling department also, there is a lot of talent and even variety. I think we are a solid, all-round side and we can do well in the conditions which are more local to us then compared to the competition.

3) Among Asian players in UAE’s conditions which are similar to the subcontinent, the Afghanistan players are in demand and hot property for the ILT20. Do you think it is just the conditions’ advantage or it also reflects on the rising stock of Afghanistan in world cricket?

It is both. The conditions suit us well here. Afghan players are playing everywhere in the world. We have few playing in the Big Bash of Australia currently. Some of us are just back from the Lanka Premier League. We have played in the Pakistan Super League. And now here in the ILT20, the trend should continue. We are also used to playing here in the UAE, we Afghans should do well at the top level.

4) Wearing a captain’s hat, what kind of roles and in what situations do you see for your Sharjah teammates: a) Naveen-ul-Haq b) Rahmanullah Gurbaz and c) Noor Ahmad

Everyone is a good pick if I was the selector. Naveen-ul-Haq has good variations as a fast bowler and he has shown good pace while bowling for Afghanistan. Gurbaz is a power hitter who likes to go over the top. He can give the team a good start and put us in good positions. The chinaman deliveries of Noor can be difficult to tackle in these conditions. If he gets going, he can single-handedly run through the opposition.

5) Afghanistan will play all international cricket again for the next five years. You have always been playing here if not training in India. Does that make Afghan players count as local players in the ILT20?

You can say that. We all have been using the UAE as our home base for many years now; I have been living here (in Ajman) for two years now. So yes, we can be counted as a local only in a manner of speaking.

6) You were the first Afghan player to be bought at the IPL auction (by Sunrisers Hyderabad) but played only three matches. You reckon you were underused by Sunrisers?

I got an opportunity through Sunrisers Hyderabad and grateful for that but I also did not get more opportunities after that. I was at my peak then I even performed well in a match but used to get dropped in the next one. It was difficult to cement your place in the team in the conditions prevalent then. Then there was Rashid Khan also with in the team with me and it was difficult to incorporate two spinners especially from overseas.

7) You have an experience to play in the IPL for four years. Afghanistan team has trained in India for a few years. Is it an advantage for your side with the ICC World Cup 2023 being played there?

Definitely. Apart from the familiarity, the conditions in India are pretty similar to what us Afghan players play and practice in. It is a great opportunity for us to do well at the World Cup.

8) There is a lot of talent in the Indian team but have missed out on winning the silverware at the World Cups or even the Asia Cup held in the UAE … what could be the reason?

Winning or losing is no parameter. If there are 2-3 teams that are ready to be spun out as a competitive national side, there is nothing to worry. And India has that kind of talent.

9) Afghanistan has qualified for 2023 ODI World Cup ahead of even teams such as South Africa. Is it a vindication of the talent in Afghanistan and how do you see the team’s progress parallelly in white-ball cricket?

Surely there is a lot of talent among us. Back home even on the benchstrength I can see a good lot of talented cricketers waiting in the wings and capable of doing well on the big stage. Our qualification for the World Cup has been also down to some strategic planning and acting on it. We had planned well in advance and targeted the key series in which we had to whitewash the opposition and which we acted upon as per the plan.

10) Sharjah has a lot of fan following for Afghans. How do you see the Sharjah Warriors and the fans rooting for you as genuine local supporter base in the home-and-away basis of the league?

I think we have seven or eight games in Sharjah so it should be good to play in front of our fans. I would request everyone to come out in large numbers and support Sharjah Warriors. I am sure they will come, Inshallah.

What are the Best Places to Do Your Sports Betting Research?

Sports Betting Research

Sports Betting Research: Most players start their “career” in betting by betting on their favorite team or athlete. And, let’s be honest, this is the main mistake that plagues many inexperienced players during the game. Indeed, in such bets, emotions prevail over analysis, which is a glaring problem in the game.

Sports betting is not just a passion but also a good way to earn money. A prudent mind and a cool head are important here. Beginners need to first choose a reliable bookmaker.

Experienced bettors in India especially highlight the Ekbet betting platform for its ease of use and speed of withdrawal of winnings.

After painstakingly choosing a bookmaker, it is important to do your own research so that your bet is more likely to win.

The ability to work with information, correlation of facts, and timely receipt of fresh data is the most important thing when choosing a bet. It’s not enough to just believe in the team you want to bet on. It is important to understand how the team is doing at the moment, whether it is motivated enough to win, and whether the team members that it fielded for the match are optimal.

Professional betters spend a lot of time studying the market. In order to prepare for the match, you need to know the following tips from experienced players.

Follow the news

Beginners can start with this, take large information portals and start studying them.

Major sports portals and TV channels:

  • Sports Illustrated
  • Sony ESPN
  • EuroSport
  • The Times of India Sports
  • Star sport

This will help you learn about injuries, team substitutions, and other important information from insiders. Find a few sites on the Internet that you can trust, add to that the major sports television networks, and analyze everything you see and read.

Collect statistics

It would seem that statistics are not fun at all, but they are necessary to study the major sports sites with statistics. For example, look at the success of the team in away matches and at home. This will help you understand which games are best to bet on.

Studying the profiles of the athletes who play will help you understand what form the player or the whole team is in at this stage. Statistics are also available on major sports portals and websites:

  • ESPN

Find a platform that talks about the sport you want to bet on and delve into the history of the team and the player, and this will allow you to draw the right conclusions and win bets.

Read sports and betting forums

There are a huge number of forums on the Internet for fans of sports betting. The forum is a good place to listen to professional bettors, ask for advice, listen to predictions and find out insider information.

24Betting Platform Pros and Cons

24betting platform pros and cons

Even the best projects and businesses have their pros and cons. For example, a suit or dress from a great designer may not suit a person. Nothing is perfect; you can even find blunders in a Hollywood movie.

The same applies to betting platforms: such excellent professionals as 24betting casino have their shortcomings, and users have the right to know the whole truth about them.

Of course, the advantages of this gaming platform are much greater because every day, the brand does its best to adapt to the users’ wishes and is constantly improving! But we still start with the disadvantages.

The 1st disadvantage: you cannot call the support service

Not all people like typing long messages and know how to clearly express their thoughts in writing. It is especially difficult to do this when you need to solve your problem, and you don’t understand exactly how to do it – and mainly, any support services are contacted in such situations.

Of course, it is much easier for many people to call a person and state their problem in a voice than to text message after message. But, unfortunately, so far, the 24betting support service is available only in chat mode.

The 2nd drawback: there is no welcome bonus

Modern bettors are spoilt by the variety of bonuses offered by betting platforms. And this is reasonable because all self-respecting companies that value their customers have already invented dozens of different bonuses and generously provide them to all those who use their services.

Naturally, the 24betting betting portal has an impressive list of excellent bonuses, which are periodically updated with newer and newer ones. Still, they don’t have the welcome bonus that players are so used to. 

The 3rd disadvantage: there is no live broadcast of the cricket

Cricket is the most popular sport in India and abroad, and most bettors prefer to bet on it. It is very convenient to place bets and watch matches simultaneously. However, the sportsbook service does not have such an opportunity – live broadcasts are unavailable on the website, so check the best streaming platforms online to find the most suitable for you.

Benefits of 24betting sportsbook

And now, let’s move on to the advantages, which are much more numerous! And this is not surprising because a vast team of professionals is working around the clock to ensure that the 24betting service improves.

  1. When you use the services of 24betting, you are not breaking the law. After all, this platform is licensed, which means it does not violate any laws of India.
  2. Yes, there is no welcome bonus on the site, but many others are available. The project team constantly analyzes which bonuses appeal to bettors the most and keeps them. Unpopular and useless bonuses are quickly replaced with new, much better ones. Moreover, a weekly lottery with a prize of one million rupees awaits you!
  3. You have a massive number of opportunities to bet on cricket, which is the most popular sport in India. Bettors have access not only to the legendary matches of the world scale but also to more niche events, followed only by sophisticated cricket fans.
  4. A betting exchange is available for players to diversify and test their skills.
  5. The company has a convenient 24betting app, which is free and pleases users with a simple and intuitive interface in English. The program was created in the company’s corporate colors and is essentially a clone of the official website. In addition, the 24betting APK has the same functionality, the same matches, and other additional features as the desktop version.
  6. Yes, you can’t call the support service. Still, it works around the clock, and only real super-professionals, who undergo a huge amount of training and learn important and useful things before starting work, are gathered there. So be sure that every support employee can answer any of your questions.

As you can see, there are many more advantages than disadvantages, which are much more important and significant! Therefore, you can be sure that at 24betting sportsbook, you will spend your time with benefit and pleasure!
