"We are incredibly excited to unveil the schedule for the 2024 season," said Srinivasan. 

"This promises to be our most thrilling season yet, with each of the MLC’s six teams actively recruiting in the off-season, adding a host of world-class player signings to their team rosters with more big names to be soon announced. 

“With some of world cricket’s  biggest current stars and seasoned veterans involved, including the likes of athletic Jamaican allrounder Andre Russell, New Zealand’s left-arm quick, Trent Boult, 2023 MLC Finals MVP Nicholas Pooran, Afghanistan's superstar spinner, Rashid Khan, together with cricketing royalty in coaches Ricky Ponting, Shane Watson and Stephen Fleming, it demonstrates the depth of talent being attracted to the league.”

In addition to the highly anticipated matches, MLC remains committed to supporting the long-term infrastructure to foster the growth of localized cricket communities further while strengthening cricket’s presence in the US.  

“Last year, we unveiled MLC at the newly upgraded Church Street Park in Morrisville, North Carolina, and the brand new Grand Prairie Stadium in Grand Prairie, Texas, which will both once again co-host the 2024 tournament, building on the impact of season one in those communities,” Srinivasan said. 

“These venues will deliver world-class pitches and a vibrant atmosphere to support the overall MLC fan experience. Moreover, we are committed to exploring expansion opportunities with new cricket venues to support our six teams’ growing American fanbase.”

Off the back of Major League Cricket’s first successful season and a momentum boost from the ICC T20 World Cup in the U.S. in June - the 2024 season is primed to reach new heights with cricket fever to captivate the US this summer.
