Amidst the chaos of COVID-19, the 2020 Abu Dhabi T10 League was postponed until 2021 – here’s the complete list of squads for each team.
After a delay of over two months, the competition’s fourth season is due to get underway on 28 January, culminating on 6 February. All matches are to be played at the Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium, with three games set to be held back-to-back per day. In terms of the format, bowlers are permitted to bowl two overs each, with the batting powerplay lasting 4 overs.
Abu Dhabi T10 League will consist of eight teams with a round-robin tournament before it moves into its play-offs. This year sees the former Karnataka Tuskers becoming Pune Devils. Whilst a majority of players were retained by their sides from the 2019 season, there are a whole host of changes, as well as new editions for every team. A number of Englishmen are part of the squads to be involved in the T10 League.
