The ISPL’s vision is to foster talent irrespective of age and give every cricket player who is driven by passion and determination an opportunity to play as part of a professional team in a stadium. Our goal extends beyond the field and to this end, we are awarding scholarships to 101 deserving kids, offering mentorship and training. Our long-term vision is to broaden our reach, not only across India but globally, to celebrate cricket’s unifying spirit.”

As the curtains prepare to fall on this exhilarating event, the closing ceremony promises to be a spectacle in itself, featuring a live comedy performance by the renowned duo from the Kapil Sharma Show, Kiku Sharda and Krushna Abhishek.

“The fact that several celebrities have come together to support the league shows the potential of tennis ball cricket and the talent it can unearth in the coming years. This is just a start and we aim to make this league even bigger and better in the coming years,” said ISPL Core Committee member Ashish Shelar.

Among the standout performers of the tournament, Abhishek Dalhor of Majhi Mumbai has shone brightly, emerging as the most expensive player in the league and delivering match-winning performances with his bat.
