But meanwhile, the ILT20 have brought in a concept that is hugely different from any cricketing tournament as they try to fend-off the competition from the SA20.

The ILT20 have introduced a belt system just like the cap system in the IPL which is being awarded to the most run scorer and most wicket-taker in the competition. Meanwhile, the winning team will also get a belt while the Most Valuable Player (MVP) will also get a belt at the end of the tournament.

And these are not just any belt, but these are replica of somewhat same looking belt with different design as like the WWE belts. After this, the Twitterati have been making fun around it on social media, we have gathered some of them here.
