Ajman Cricket Council Director Parvez Khan has said that the new T20 tournament is designed to help the United Arab Emirates-based talent. The tournament has already started, with Ajman Heroes and Deccan Gladiators clashing in the opening game. In that game, Gladiators beat Heroes by five wickets. The league is inspired by Abu Dhabi T10 league and will be a source of talent identification.
Teams such as Bangla Tigers, Northern Warriors, Delhi Bulls, and Deccan Gladiators participate in the T10 league. Notably, the same teams will participate in the Ajman Cup alongside Ajman Heroes and Maratha Arabians. The tournament will be played in a single round-robin format, with the top four teams qualifying for the semifinals. The semis will be played on March 21, and the winners will play for the trophy the next day.
Meanwhile, Shaji Ul Mulk, chairperson of Ajman Cricket Council said that has said that the UAE has seen tremendous growth in the cricket community and the council is working proactively to nurture regional talent.
â€œThe UAE has seen tremendous growth in the cricket community; the Ajman Cricket Council is working proactively to nurture the regionâ€™s raw talent and fortify them for the international stage. We wish to create an infrastructure where players can healthily challenge themselves, reach their full potential, and leverage Abu Dhabi T10â€™s extensive platform,â€ Shaji Ul Mulk said.
On the other hand, Parvez Khan is thankful to the sponsors of the league. â€œThe tournament is designed to facilitate healthy competition and help scout UAE-based talent and dedicated cricketers of all nationalities.
