Following in the footsteps of Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Mumbai that have hosted their T20 leagues over the last few years, the Andhra Cricket Association (ACA) on Thursday announced its inaugural T20 competition.

The 33-match long tournament, to be played between October 22 and November 8 at the RDT Sports Complex in Anantapur, will, however, feature only Andhra players in a bio-bubble.

"The players will undergo tests from Friday, October 16 and only those testing negative will be allowed to enter the bio-bubble created inside the sports complex. Once inside, they will not be allowed to come out," Mohan explained.

"Since there has been no cricketing activity for more than 6 months this tournament will provide much-needed game time for the best players in Andhra and also to prospective and aspiring players," said a statement from the ACA.
