Saudi Arabia has reportedly offered Indian Premier League team owners the opportunity to set up the "world's richest T20 league" in the country. 

As per Australian publication The Age, the talks have been going on over the subject for about a year.  

A number of representatives of the Saudi government and businesses have been spotted around India's cricketing activities, looking to get the IPL owners and the BCCI itself into their planned Twenty20 league which would stand neck-to-neck with the IPL in terms of financial prowess, The Age further reported.
