The highly anticipated season two of Cognizant Major League Cricket will get underway on July 4, 2024.

The professional cricket league in the United States, Major League Cricket (MLC) has announced Cognizant, an American multinational IT services and consulting company, as its official title sponsor.

This multi-year agreement has marked a significant step forward for MLC, solidifying long-term support for the development of cricket in the USA.

Vijay Srinivasan, Co-Founder, Major League Cricket, said, “Major League Cricket is thrilled to welcome Cognizant as our title sponsor, starting with season two of MLC this summer. This multi-year partnership will help enable the continued growth of MLC and cricket in America as this new era in the United States for the world’s second-largest sport continues to bloom.”

Ravi Kumar S, Chief Executive Officer, Cognizant, said, “Cognizant is excited to support Major League Cricket’s vision, inspiring the next generation of cricket players.
