International Cricket Council (ICC) today officially sanctioned the second season of T10 League that will take place in Sharjah from November 23 2018.
The apex body’s validation comes as a shot in the arm for the league that will have two new teams making them to a strong eight teams and a ten-day long season.
T10 League is the evolution of cricket, from 50-over games to 10-over games. ICC, last season, had approved the organisers of running the first 10 overs format league in the world.
Local and international players remain the main attraction of this league. Eoin Morgan-led Kerala Kings won the inaugural edition last year.
“This sanction from ICC for T10 League gives our partners, stakeholders and more importantly the players a much-needed boost. Having said that, it additionally gives us responsibility to ensure we keep growing year-on-year and make this format globally acceptable,” said Shaji Ul Mulk, Chairman, T10 League.
“We shared the vision and belief of the organisers in this format. From here on, it is important to grow the league and the format and ensure that players, teams and the fans get an experience to remember,” said Zayed Abbas, Board Member and Official Spokesperson, Emirates Cricket Board.
