Ram Charan buys ISPL Hyderabad team

His entry into ISPL adds a new dimension to the league

Hyderabad: After a slew of Bollywood superstars like Akshay Kumar (Srinagar), Hrithik Roshan (Bengaluru), and Amitabh Bachchan (Mumbai) ventured into team ownership in the Indian Street Premier League (ISPL), it’s now Ram Charan’s turn.

The actor announced that he’s the proud owner of the Hyderabad team of the league. ISPL is an innovative tennis ball T10 cricket tournament staged within the confines of a stadium.

Charan’s entry into ISPL adds a new dimension to the league. While his passion for the sport inspires budding cricketers to put their foot forward, it also provides cricketers with an opportunity to shine on the grand stage.

“I am ecstatic to be part of ISPL! I believe it's a unique initiative that promises to redefine cricket entertainment. Being a fan of street cricket I can resonate with the idea of the league that aims to discover hidden talents.

Hyderabad has always been a hub of great cricketing talent, and this league provides a fantastic platform for our local players to shine on the national stage. It’s an honour and I am excited to lead the Hyderabad team,” said Ram Charan.

Featuring 19 matches among six competitive teams Hyderabad, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Chennai, Kolkata, and Srinagar, the inaugural edition of ISPL is set to begin from March 2nd to March 9th, 2024.
