The Desert land of UAE is all set to go through the T20 storm in the December as the all new UAE T20 league is set to begin.
The league is sanctioned by the International Cricket Council and will bring a lot of enthusiasm in the UAE.
The league is devoted to promote and unearth the hidden talent in the desert but a lot of star attractions are also expected to take part in the league.
The players from all around the world are expected to feature in the cash rich league.
Format of the tournament
The tournament is a franchise based tournament with five franchises competing for the cup.
Although, the details about the tournament have not been disclosed in detail, it is expected that the teams will play each other twice and the top two teams will make it to the final.
With only five teams competing, the tournament is going to be shorter than the likes of IPL and BBL where it is an eight team tournament.
It makes the league even more exciting as every match will have greater importance with each team slated to play eight matches.
Venues for the tournament
The matches are slated to take place in three of the most popular provincial states of Abu Dhabi, Sharjah and Dubai.
Total 22 matches are slated to be played within a span of 24 days which means one match on daily basis.
The matches are slated to be played at night to allow maximum audience to come to watch the tournament and promote the sport in the desert land.
Each of the five teams will be composed of 16 players, out of which they can choose a maximum six international players.
Due to the busy schedule in the December which also features tournament like BBL, you may not see the biggest of stars but there will still be enough star power at the tournament.
The tournament is primarily aimed at development of budding stars so it will feature two emerging stars from full members, three from associate nations, two junior level players and three from the local areas of UAE.
The UAE cricket board and ICC are hopeful of starting a new revolution in ICC with new project and getting some stars for the future.
They feel that it will help engineer the spirit of sports in the upcoming generation and developing UAE into a sport based country.
