KKR Owners Seek to Invest in The Hundred

LONDON: IPL franchise owners Calcutta Knight Riders looking to invest in the One hundred , the new flagship tournament of the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB)

The newspaper 'The Telegraph' reported that the Shahrukh Khan KKR co-owners are open to invest in the 100-ball-per-side competition, which has now been postponed to next year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The ECB, which may lose more than £ 300 million if the entire season is canceled due to the pandemic, is re-evaluating its previous stance of not allowing private investment in the tournament, the newspaper reported.

KKR owners also have a presence in the Caribbean Premier League , having purchased the Trinidad franchise in 2015.
