Cycle Pure Agarbathies has announced its support to Tiger Conservation by launching the “Cycle Pure Agarbathies’ Tri-series for Tiger Conservation”.
The T20 tri-series will involve two KPL franchise sides – Mysuru Warriors and Belagaavi Panthers along with Hutt Hawks, a Cricket Club from Wellington, New Zealand. The series will be played from July 10 to 13, 2016, at the SJCE Grounds, Mysuru.
The series will witness the three teams playing to leverage the love for cricket to bring about awareness and encourage sustained efforts to protect the tiger. It also renders an opportunity to the KPL teams to prepare for the upcoming season of the Karnataka Premier League.
