T10 DRAFT 2019

T10 League: Lasith Malinga, Eoin Morgan and other big names to light up Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium

The tournament features some of the biggest names in world cricket. T10 league is going from strength to strength and gearing up for its third edition. 

The league is well past its product testing. Some of the mainstays of T20 cricket will feature in this innovative competition including Eoin Morgan, Shane Watson, Andre Russell and Shahid Afridi from November 15-24.   

It was conjectured at the time of tournament's inception that it could potentially impact Pakistan Super League (PSL) popularity but now PSL franchise Lahore Qalandar's owner Fawad Rana has his own team in T10 league.

The matches wrap up in just about 90 minutes akin to football but cricket aficionados are still trying to wrap their heads around this relatively new experiment in cricket. 

Shaji ul Mulk is hopeful that Yuvraj Singh will feature in the third season. Several Indian players have already participated in the T10 league including Praveen Kumar, Munaf Patel, and Pravin Tambe.

Andre Russel is of the view that the T10 league could pave the way for cricket to make its entry into the Olympics. “It would be brilliant for cricket to become an Olympic sport and I know all players would love the opportunity of representing their country at an Olympic event,” he was quoted as saying by the Gulf News

It will be interesting to see how new signings would acclimatise and figure the best strategy for T10 cricket.
