The Southern Region Twenty-20 Inter- Cricket League has gone on break as Muslim players will observe the month of Ramadan.
A member of the league’s organising committee, Saeed Limdawala, said it was important to go on break to help Muslim players to reflect on their spirituality.
“We are planning for the league to resume on July 26. This time is important to every Muslim and as cricket players, we also need to be prayerful and generous,” he said.
