Telangana T20 Premier League is a cricket T20 premier league owned by Hyderabad Cricket Association in Telangana, India.[2] It is on the lines of the Indian Premier League.[3]

History[edit]

The league was started in December 2017 by the president of Hyderabad Cricket Association (HYCA), G.Vivek after it was purchased from Telangana Premier League.[4] After Tamil Nadu and Karnataka, Telangana became third state in South India to launch its state T20 league with an initiative to provide major boost to rural cricketers who lag behind dur to lack of proper infrastructure and coaching facilities. The owners of the teams competing in the league are announced on 13 January, 2018 by HYCA who have been selected on a first-come-first-serve basis after submitting an Expression of Interest and paying Rs 12.5 lakh each to HYCA for one-year contract.[5] The team colours and logos were launched on 2 February, 2018 with the inaugural match being held on 3 February at Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium, Hyderabad[6][7]

Adilabad Tigers won the inaugural tournament beating Medak Mavericks by 9 runs and Hitesh Yadav was adjudged as the man of the match for the Final.[8][9]
