The upcoming World Championship of Legends (WCL) 2024 cricket tournament, scheduled from July 3 to 13 in England, promises to be a celebration of cricketing nostalgia.

Co-owned by Bollywood icon Ajay Devgn, this event will unite some of the game’s most revered former international players. Set at the renowned grounds of Edgbaston and Northamptonshire County Cricket Club, the tournament aim to bring together childhood cricket heroes on a single stage.

Bringing back classic cricket: Nostalgic format returns

In a nostalgic nod to early T20 cricket, the inaugural edition of the WCL will reintroduce the classic bowl-out format. Unlike contemporary super-overs, tied matches will be decided by bowlers aiming to hit the stumps unguarded by a batter. This method promises heightened tension and excitement, recalling iconic moments such as India‘s memorable 3-0 victory over Pakistan in the T20 World Cup 2007.
