5. T20 Blast, England – 1.12 Million
A league that is still in its formative years, the T20 Blast from England managed to secure the 5th spot in this tightly contested list of the most popular T20 tournaments from across the globe in terms of social media followers. The first edition of the current form of the tournament was played in 2014 and since then year by year, its popularity has been increasing.
Prior to how it is known today, the T20 Blast was called the Twenty20 Cup when it first started off in 2003. And, then it was changed to be called the Friends Provident and after a season as the Friends Life T20 in 2010, before finally coming to be known as what we call it today, the T20 Blast. The tournament has a massive following in England and has gradually risen in popularity in other places, especially after the England national team started doing well in the limited-overs format of cricket, producing global stars like Eoin Morgan and Joe Root.
Alongside the Caribbean Premier League in the West Indies, it’s one of the few active T20 competitions helping the fans cope up with the emotional toll that the cricket fans all across the globe have been going through after the COVID-19 pandemic broke out.
