Cricket and entertainment go hand in hand and it's going to be no different in the first season of the International League T20, set to be played in the UAE in January next year.
The tournament will kick off with a glitzy and electrifying opening ceremony at the Dubai International Stadium on Friday January 13 (2023). The super star rapper Badshah would be in the thick of things, ready to set the night alight and set the ball rolling for what should be scintillating four-weeks of high-quality T20 cricket.
Recipient of various music and music-film awards, including PTC Punjabi Film awards, as well as nabbing two Nickelodeon Kids Choice ‘favourite rap music star’ awards, the incredibly popular Indian rapper, Badshah, will carry out his performance before the blockbuster opening match - which will be announced in the coming days. And, in a move that will delight fans of his genre and keep them engaged throughout the League Badshah will also put pen to paper and produce the official ILT20 Anthem.
