The Abu Dhabi T10 League is underway with several of the biggest names in world cricket competing in the shortest format of the game  – here are the T10 League 2022 players from Pakistan, containing the list of Pakistan cricketers for all eight teams.

The sixth season of the league began on November 23, with the reigning champions Deccan Gladiators already registering their first victory of the year, beating Team Abu Dhabi by 35 runs. There are eight teams in the tournament, an increase from six last year, with new teams New York Strikers and Morrisville Samp Army joining the competition.

The entire tournament will be played at the Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium in Abu Dhabi, with the final set for December 4. Teams will play each other in a round robin format before the knockout stages which include a third place play-off match on the same day as the final.


Nine players from Pakistan will compete in the competition, with several coming in after participating in Pakistan’s incredible run in the 2022 T20 World Cup which saw them reach the final at the MCG before losing out to England.
