Announcing the new season, Ravi Thakran, Chairman, UKC said, “UKC is an revolutionary format where players will go one on one against the best in the world. We have received great feedback from the players and viewers alike. The format allows an action-packed contest without any rain delays, effected by pitch conditions and a shorter snappier format. UKC is about growing the sport of cricket and given the short length of tournament it means we can host multiple tournaments without disturbing the current cricketing calendar. Season 2 will have more than 6 superstars vying to be declared the real champ in a one-on-one format as well as USD 1 million as winners cheque.”

The first exhilarating season which is underway till January 1, 2021 has six global superstars as contenders – Yuvraj Singh, Chris Gayle, Kevin Pietersen, Rashid Khan, Eoin Morgan and Andre Russell.
