QUEEN’S ROAD: With just two weeks left for the Karnataka Premier League IV to commence, the trophy for KPL was unveiled at a ceremony at the Chinnaswamy Stadium.

The league, a tribute to the scion of the Mysore royal family and former president of KSCA, late Srikantadatta Narasimharaja Wadiyar, will witness eight teams battle it out for the coveted title with matches in Hubballi and Mysore.

Brijesh Patel, secretary of KSCA, said: "This year, the league has elevated itself to the next level and we expect the contest to be even more exciting and competitive as compared to the previous editions, considering that the teams are all so well matched with the talent in Karnataka being evenly spread across the teams."

"There are several top stars from Karnataka participating and the youngsters can learn a lot from them. Last year, players like Shishir Bhavane, Nidhish M and K C Cariappa benefitted from the KPL and this year we look forward to discovering a new crop of stars.

 All the IPL franchisees are also very keen to scout for talent in the tournament. We have also introduced online scoring for the tournament this year," added Brijesh.

Chairman of Karbonn Mobiles said, "We are extremely proud to be associated with the Karnataka Premier League as title sponsor for the second consecutive year. Over the years,  KPL has nurtured young cricketers from Karnataka and provided a platform for players to perform at the state and national level."
