The East African country of Zambia which shares its borders with two other cricketing nations Zimbabwe and Namibia will host the BetBarter Zambia T10 League from July 4 to 12, comprising a total of 15 T10 matches.

 The Covid-19 pandemic has come as a blessing in disguise for nations with little infrastructure and resources for cricket, to look from the perspective of an optimist. Places like St Lucia, Sweden, Germany which otherwise wouldn't have been in a position to host cricket tournaments and get the required traction to either be profitable or break even now have opportunities of doing so.

T10 as a format has also gained steam as matches can easily finish in one and a half hours. This allows more matches to be played over a shorter span.

Zambia is the latest country to employ both these tools to success. With BetBarter sponsoring the league, the cricketers of Zambia will have an opportunity to display their skills before cricket lovers from all across the world.

Four teams Kabwe Stars, Kitwe Kings, Lusaka Heats and Ndola Blitz will take part in the competition which will conclude with the two semi-finals and the final on Sunday, July 12.

All the matches will be streamed live on the official YouTube channel of BetBarter. Registered users of BetBarter can also watch the matches on betbarter.com.
