    Lets face it - T10 is a rubbish format and I hope it never gets backed by any cricket board or the ICC.

    The short formats have taken away the beauty of the game.

    I hope it is a flop. There was a time Hongkong sixes was a huge thing but again those days are gone. I remember there was a 14 overs a side tournament held also in Malaysia sometime in the mid 90's. It was called super 8's. Probably not many people remember the tournament. It was the birth of Adam Gilchrist the legend.

    9 December, Dubai: Maratha Arabians on Saturday announced that West Indies’ talismanic all-rounder Dwayne Bravo has been drafted into the squad for the upcoming Heera T10 Cricket League.

    Bravo will replace Sri Lankan legend Kumar Sangakkara in the squad. Sangakkara pulled out of the squad for personal reasons.

    Maratha Arabians, co-owned by Parvez Khan of Pacific Ventures, Bollywood Actor/Producer/Director Sohail Khan and Ali Tumbi of Aqua Properties, will do battle against some of the world’s best known cricketers in the six-team tournament from 14-17 December.

    Legendary India Opener Virender Sehwag is the icon and captain of the franchise.

    Sehwag leads a squad featuring a number of stars including Mohammed Amir and Kamran Akmal. Former Pakistan captain Wasim Akram is the head coach and mentor of the squad with former England/Scotland cricketer Dougie Brown supporting him as the assistant coach. The squad consists of players from nine countries including India, England, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, South Africa, Netherlands and United Arab Emirates (UAE).

    The tournament is being staged under the aegis of the Emirates Cricket Board (ECB), with official approval of the International Cricket Council (ICC).

    Speaking about the inclusion of Bravo, Sehwag said: “It is a disappointment that Kumar will not be with us during the tournament. He is an invaluable asset for any side. We are equally fortunate to have a top-class all-rounder like Dwayne Bravo replace Kumar.”

    Head Coach and mentor Akram said: “We are fortunate that we are able to replace an outstanding cricketer like Kumar with someone like Dwayne Bravo. Dwayne is one of the genuine all-rounders in limited-overs cricket who has really made a mark for himself. I am sure that Dwayne will add a lot of value to the side. We welcome him into the franchise with a lot of excitement.”

    Maratha Arabians Co-owner Parvez Khan said: “Wasimbhai and Viru are working together to come up with an effective strategy. I am sure Dwayne will fit into the scheme of things very well. He comes with loads of experience and adds value to any side that he plays in.”

    Squad: Virender Sehwag (captain/icon/India), Dwayne Bravo (West Indies), Mohammed Amir (Pakistan), Alex Hales (England), Lendl Simmons (West Indies), Imad Wasim (Pakistan), Krishmar Santokie (West Indies), Rilee Rousouw (South Africa), Roelof van der Merwe (Netherlands), Kamran Akmal (Pakistan), Mohammed Sami (Pakistan), Hardus Viljoen (South Africa), Ross Whiteley (England), Shaiman Anwar (UAE), Zahoor Khan (UAE); Head Coach and Mentor: Wasim Akram; Assistant coach: Dougie Brown; Manager: Abdul Latif Khan

    T10 Cricket League: Bravo replaces Sangakkara

    Top cricketers start to arrive for T10 Cricket League

    Ajman: International cricketers to take part in the Heera T10 Cricket League have started to arrive to prepare for this unique tournament set to be held from December 14 to 17 at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium.

    Among the first cricketers to arrive in the UAE are Maratha Arabians’ South African all-rounder Rilee Rossou.

    Maratha Arabians have drafted West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo into their squad in place of Kumar Sangakkara who had to pull out due to personal reasons. With the best hard hitting and limited over specialists players from around the world to be in action, ticket sales have been brisk.

    Speaking to Gulf News, Shaji Ul Mulk, chairman of the T10 Cricket League, who is expecting to create a new benchmark in the annals of cricket, said: “We want the cricket to be serious and keenly contested and hence resisted all temptations to experiment with fancy rules. We tried to stay close to the T20 rules and the changes that have been made have come by default. When you half the T20 game, rules will change. In T20 bowlers are permitted four overs and in this only two overs. We want people to like what they are used to. For example there was a suggestion to make T10 with only 10 players, we were tempted but we did not want to do it because cricket is a 11-players’ game and we did not want reduce it.”

    To encourage big hitting the organisers are offering attractive prizes. In fact, they are keen to see batsmen score centuries within the 10 overs. “A batsman who can hit a century will get a studio apartment worth Dh500,000 to be given by Ali Tumbi’s Aqua Properties. Even half century makers will get the luxury Hublo Rolex standard watch.”

    All the cricket grounds in the UAE during the coming days will be buzzing with activity as the six teams have hired grounds for training.
    Ticket sales are on full swing with huge demand from different parts of India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. “Tickets are almost sold out in certain categories. We had so much of demand for the hospitality section that we had to expand it. We urge fans to snap the tickets soon than be disappointed.”

    Sharjah Cricket Stadium is being spruced up. “Everyone will see something very different at the Sharjah stadium. Not only from the quality of the game but the way Sharjah Stadium will look. We are making many changes there.”

    Mazhar Khan, General Manager of the Sharjah Cricket Club said: “The recent Afghanistan-Ireland match produced lot of runs from our pitches. The selected pitches will play true. You can expect the ball to fly off the willow and so get ready for some lusty hitting. The outfield is looking good. We have been watering it and keeping it pristine.”
