The first edition of the International League T20 (ILT20 2023) starts tonight (Friday 13 January) in the United Arab Emirates. The Emirates Cricket Board (ECB) created its own T20 league to take cricket to the next level in the Gulf nation.
Six teams namely MI Emirates, Abu Dhabi Knight Riders, Dubai Capitals, Gulf Giants, Desert Vipers and Sharjah Warriors compete in this competition. As the names suggest, the Emirates, Abu Dhabi and Dubai franchises share the same ownership as IPL teams Mumbai Indians, Kolkata Knight Riders and Delhi Capitals.
In terms of salaries for cricketers, ILT20 2023 is already in second place, behind only IPL. Unlike the other T20 leagues in the world, the UAE T20 tournament is an international franchise competition, which means that the XI of the teams will consist of more foreign players than local players.
Several big names in world cricket such as Kieron Pollard, Sunil Narine, Moeen Ali, Colin Munro, Dwayne Bravo, Imran Tahir, Nicholas Pooran, Andre Russell, Yusuf Pathan, Robin Uthappa, Chris Lynn and others are part of this tournament.
