Trying to give chances to the best players- Gautam Gambhir

Gautam Gambhir, MP from East Delhi BJP and former cricketer, says that, "This is not an opportunity to find any political opportunity, but to find the best player and give him a lot of effort. Nothing was said about this Premier League in my memorandum, but still according to the need, we have started EDPL to create opportunities for the players looking for opportunities for cricket." He further said that, "We had a 21 year old child who has no parents, he prepares and he has a severe shortage of resources. We have reached out to such children and have given a chance to these children."

He further said that, "The East Delhi Premier League will be held in the second week of November this year in which teams from 10 constituencies will participate in East Delhi. Players in the age group of 17 to 36 years will play in the tournament."

The time has come for the country to move from cricketing nation to sporting nation, the way it has earned a name in cricket and also in sports. Every world class tournament will be well organized."
