The ongoing T10 League in Abu Dhabi is already attracting a lot of viewership thanks to three brilliant matches on the opening day. Some of the top international players are also setting the stage on fire in this tournament. Indian superstars, as expected, are missing but one would be surprised to know that three players from India are still part of the T10 League.
Let us know more about these players
- Pravin Tambe
Pravin Tambe became the first Indian cricketer last year to feature in the T20 league apart from IPL. He played in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) and has also been part of the T10 League previously. Not many are aware that the leg-spinner picked up a hat-trick in the tournament in one of the earlier editions. He is playing for the Maratha Arabians this season and will be looking to perform well.
- Ishan Malhotra
Another Indian cricketer featuring in the T10 League is Ishan Malhotra. He will be playing for the Maratha Arabians in the T10 League and will be itching to make a mark. Interestingly, Ishan played for the Deccan Chargers in the Indian Premier League in the 2009 season. He was destroyed by Virender Sehwag then scoring 23 runs in the only over he bowled.
- Prashant Gupta
Deccan Gladiators, the runners up of the last T10 League season, have also managed to grab the services of an Indian player in Prashant Gupta. He played domestic cricket for Railways and Uttar Pradesh from 2008 to 2019. Interestingly, he was in the Gladiators squad in 2019 as well but didn’t play even once.
However, the franchise secured his services again in the draft for the ongoing season and most importantly, included him in the XI as well. He scored 17 runs off 11 balls batting at five and will be hoping to continue batting well in future matches.
