CSK announces new franchise in Major League Cricket USA
The USA is a major market for cricket. While the Asian population in the nation will always ensure a fanbase, the revenue potential available in the states also makes it a terrific investment opportunity.
Considering these factors, naturally, the IPL Team owners have entered the tournament. It has been reported that Mumbai Indians, Chennai Super Kings and Delhi Capitals are all investing in the tournament while Kolkata Knight Riders have already confirmed it. Now, CSK has made the official announcement regarding the same.
It needs to be seen if MLC will be a good investment by the teams. The T20 World Cup in 2024 will happen in West Indies and the USA. This will further add excitement to the competition. Further, there would be some popular Indian names such as Unmukt Chand that will take part in the tournament.

Dallas Super Kings would've been my instant thought but they didn't buy majority stake like MI and KKR have for NY and LA respectively, so it'll probably be a name that's synonymous with Texan culture. Dallas Stars perhaps since Texas is known as the Lone Star state or Longhorns https://t.co/DUg2JEvFrrAdvertisement
