As the ICC mega event, the T20 World Cup 2024 captivates audiences in the Americas, fostering hopes of enhancing awareness and appreciation for the beautiful game while bolstering its credibility and popularity in the Western hemisphere. In the same vein,  another noteworthy development unfolded as the Secretary of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), Jay Shah, convened with the Commissioner of the National Football League (NFL), Roger Goodell in New York.

For the uninitiated, the NFL is a professional American football league that inaugurated its inaugural season in 1920. Analogous to the IPL, the NFL boasts widespread reach and popularity, culminating in the Super Bowl, a highly-anticipated annual sporting event renowned for its inclusion of prominent musicians in half-time performances. Notably, the commissioner of the NFL assumed office on September 1, 2006.
