Canada T20 Niagara Fest 2020 will take place between July 16 and July 22, with Vancouver Stars, Moncton Heroes, Toronto Tigers and Niagara Wonders taking on each other in two matches per day.

Few months ago, after international cricket came to a standstill due to the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, there was no live cricket for weeks. The pandemic may still be on the incline in some parts of the world, but the good news is that several countries have been able to either eliminate the pandemic from their land or have mitigated it successfully.

This is the reason why cricket lovers are now getting bombarded with live cricketing action left, right and centre. However, in most of the leagues that have been taking place across the world, none of the known names have taken part, with the exception of Johnson Charles and Daren Sammy in the St Lucia T10 Blast in the Caribbean.

Canada T20 Niagara Fest 2020 thus becomes the first big league to kick off live cricket in the wake of the pandemic. The tournament has been approved by the Cricket Council of Ontario and is being organised by Niagara Cricket Club and Virsa Foundation.

The tournament will feature T20 globetrotters like Rizwan Cheema, Bhupindar Singh and Harmandeep Singh. Several players who were part of the Global T20 league including Navneet Dhaliwal, Ravindrapal Singh and Cecil Pervez have also been roped in.

Canada T20 Niagara Fest 2020 will take place from July 16 to July 22 and will be live streamed on One Sports channel. Four teams, namely Vancouver Stars, Moncton Heroes, Toronto Tigers and Niagara Wonders, will take part in the competition, with two matches scheduled to be played per day. The tournament will conclude with the rank 2 versus rank 3 semi-final and the grand final.
