‘Mr Cricket’ Anis Sajan, confirmed his return to the indoor version of the game after a year’s gap by entering Danube Kozhikode Warriors for the tournament.
Sajan said: “Cricket is a beloved sport and a large part of our workforce is from Kerala, so this event is very meaningful for all of us.
“Besides, I am back into cricket and I did not want to miss out on an event being organised with so much care and detail.”
