The CGM Communications Community Cricket World Cup 2021 is all set to get underway from Friday, September 17 in Belmont, Perth. Five teams will compete in the tournament that will be played in the T10 format over a span of two days.
Australia WA, Croatia WA, India WA, Indigenous WA and Southern Africa WA are the teams participating in the tournament. Former Australian spinner and tournament ambassador Brad Hogg is among the prominent names featuring in the Community Cricket World Cup 2021.
“Due to the restrictions of travel, it is disappointing that the tournament can’t be played in Croatia, as it is an important foundation to grow and expand the game in the region,” Brad Hogg said in a statement.
“Cricket wants to be a global sport and initiatives like this help to spread the game. It is great that the organizers have kept the momentum of the tournament going by having the tournament in Perth, to keep up its awareness. A big thanks to the sponsors for getting on board and the city of Belmont. Looking forward to taking on some great cricketers over the two days.”
India WA will be up against Indigenous WA in the first match of the Community Cricket World Cup 2021.
