The fourth edition of the Abu Dhab T10 League begins on January 28. Eight teams come together for a fight for the trophy, with the summit clash set for February 6.
The T10 League is the only 10-over cricket tournament to be sanctioned by the International Cricket Council (ICC).
The eight teams are divided into two groups of four sides each. Every team will play three games each in the league stage. From there, teams will move into the Super League which will be followed by the playoffs and the final.
Each side will have 10 overs each in the match. Each bowler gets only 2 overs a match and Powerplay lasts 3 overs with a maximum of 2 players allowed outside the 30-yard circle. After the 3 overs, a maximum of 5 players allowed outside the circle.
|Pool A||Maratha Arabians (holder), Northern Warriors, Bangla Tigers, Deihi Bulls|
|Pool B||Deccan Gladiators, Qalandars, Pune Devils, Team Abu Dhabi|
|FUN FACT: A team has never defended its title in the history of the tournament. Opportunity for Maratha Arabians to make League history.|
Where is it happening
The League will take place only at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.
A total of 12 matches in the group stage, followed by 12 more in the Super League, will give way to the playoffs from February 5.
