The introduction of franchise league cricket has helped spread the game to different parts of the world as players from non-Test playing nations are also making it big at such tournaments.
Players from the associate nations are a great attraction at any franchise league these days due to many reasons. One of them being their sheer passion to play the game of cricket and make a name for themselves.
Players like Sandeep Lamichhane, Ali Khan, and many others have shown in the recent past that how important it is to have associate players in T20 leagues as they not only bring a different flair but also grow as top-level cricketers.
Moreover, in order to prove themselves among the galaxy of stars in such tournaments, associate players usually put in a lot more effort as compared to some of the other renowned cricketers.
Along with producing some exciting performances, such players are quite inexpensive as compared to players from the top tier teams which makes them an even better pick in the long run.
