The Lagos State Cricket Association has organised a T20 competition among different Clubs in the State to signal the opening of the 2021/2022 Cricket Season.
The competition also puts an end to the lull in competitive cricket activities in the State as a result of the prevailing COVID-19 pandemic.
The Lagos T20 Knockout Competition seeks to take advantage of the “August Break” in the rainy season to afford exposure of Players to turf wicket conditions which is gradually becoming the norm in Nigerian cricket.
The Lagos T20 Knockout competition is being played in line with laid down ICC rules and regulations.
The T20 is a newly introduced variant of cricket from the general one-day matches.
T20 cricket or Twenty20 cricket may be defined as a short cricket match limited to 20 overs of gameplay, lasting for about 80 minutes per innings, with half-an-hour intervals in between.
The beginnings of the T20 format can be traced to 2003 when it was introduced by the England and Wales Cricket Board.
