The second edition of the T20 Mumbai League will begin on May 14. With eight teams in the fray, the iconic Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai will play host to all the matches of the tournament.
This year, two new teams – Aakash Tigers Mumbai Western Suburbs and Eagle Thane Strikers – will also compete in the tournament. Also, it has been decided to drop the usual round robin format. Instead, the eight teams have been divided into two groups of four each. Each team will play three inter-group matches which will be followed by two intra-group games. The top two teams from each group will then fight it out in the semi-finals before the tournament culminates with the final on May 26.
