Remember the time when Pakistani players such as Shoaib Akhtar appeared in India Premier League (IPL)? It was a great deal between the two countries at that time but was deeply affected due to political reasons. Between the Indian and Pakistan fans, seeing players of both nations playing for the same team seemed highly unlikely, given the shared history.
However, seems we will be experiencing a new feeling with the launch of the newest cricket format, the T10 cricket. Inspired by T20 format, which is 20 overs per-side, the T10 format reduces the overs to 10 only.
What makes this league even more exciting is how players from all around the world will be included and will play under the same team. For example, the Maratha Arabian would include Sri Lankan former captain Kumar Sangakkara, Indian player Virender Sehwag and Pakistan’s Fakhar Zaman!
Chairman of ARY and owner of PSL’s Karachi Kings Salman Ahmed is one of the partners of this prestigious tournament. The tournament consists of six franchises – Punjabi Legends, Pakhtoons, Maratha Arabians, Bangla Tigers, Colombo Lions, and Kerala Kings.
Maratha Arabian is Co-Owned by Indian actor Sohail Khan!
On the Other Hand, Pakistan Cricket Team’s Chief Selector and Former Captain Inzamam-ul-Haq Co-Owns Punjabi Legends
Misbah-ul-Haq is also a part of Punjabi Legends!
The Team which has Geared Much Attention is Team Pakhtoons!
The team holds the support of Shahid Afridi, Indian actress Zareen Khan and our very own Fahad Mustafa!
The launch took place in Dubai and it was filled with both, Indian and Pakistani celebrities!
Celebs from both sides of the border come together to lend support to the upcoming T10 Cricket League that kicks off this December at Sharjah Cricket Stadium! Pick your favourite team and be a part of all the excitement, fun and entertainment awaiting you! @ttencricketuae @adnansid1 @mehwishhayatofficial @kritisanon @sohailkhanofficial #hawwsips #celebspotting #adnansiddiqui #mehwishhayat #kritisanon #sohailkhan #t10cricketleague #uae #pakistan #india #celebrities #cometogether #cricket #sports #spirit #artknowsnoboundaries #sharjahcricketstadium #pacificventures #pacificsportsclub #aquaproperties #THORpr #TheHouseOfRana #Rraannaayy #comingsoon #staytuned
What makes it even more exciting is how players from India and Pakistan will be playing each other, against one another in different teams. The format is something to look forward to as well.
Let’s see how this exciting tournament proceeds!
