Six teams from Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Seattle, Texas and Washington will participate in it. Out of these four teams own four teams of IPL.

However, there were rumors that Roy had canceled his contract with the England Cricket Board and moved to the United States permanently. However, Roy later said in a statement, ‘After some unwelcome speculations have been made in the last 24 hours, I want to make it clear that I am not leaving England, never will. Representing my country as a professional cricketer will be my greatest pride. Hope to play for England for many more years. This will prevail with me.’

However, Jason Roy also confirmed that he will play Major League Cricket. In a statement, he said, ‘I have had transparent and helpful discussions with the ECB regarding playing Major League Cricket. The ECB are happy to let me play in this competition, as long as I don’t have to pay them for the rest of the contract year.’

The team has not yet announced the name of any player in the foreign category.
