The Abu Dhabi T10 league will commence on November 19. The Emirates Cricket Board (ECB) announced the schedule earlier for the fifth season of the 10 overs tournament. Since the inaugural edition in 2017, cricket’s shortest format has managed to hook the audience and onlookers alike by providing a pulsating and entertaining action.

The T10 league has also seen quite a few players come from smaller countries and play franchise cricket. It has also seen few senior players like Chris Gayle and Andre Russell ace the format with consummate ease. This year’s edition is also no different as quite a few players have signed up with the six participating teams.
