The teams playing in the league are – Team Punjabis, Team Pakhtoons, Team Maratha, Team Banglas, Team Lankans, Team Sindhis and Team Keralites, among others. And, the auction will be conducted in the UAE itself.
The T10 league will have 10-over-a-side match with 90 minutes of action, spread over four days. It is scheduled to begin on December 21 and culminate on December 24 at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium.
Shaji-ul Mulk, president of T10 league, said:
“We are very excited about the concept of T10 league as it brings cricket to the level of world sports of 90 minutes and fast pace action.
“We all enjoy T20. Wait till you experience T10! We have based this league on a South Asian concept as we have a dominant south Asian, cricket crazy population in the UAE and GCC,” he said.
Many stalwarts of the game will participate in the league but the biggest attraction for Indian cricket fans would be the return of their beloved Viru. The last time we saw Viru bat was in the MCL. Indian cricket fans would be hoping to see some trademark ‘Virender Sehwag’ strokes like upper-cut.
