The inaugural edition of the International League T20 kicked off on January 13th with the first Match being played between Dubai Capitals and Abu Dhabi Knight Riders. The tournament aims to give a platform to the unnoticed talent in U.A.E to get recognised.
All matches of the competition will be played across three venues – the Dubai International Cricket Stadium (which will host both the Qualifiers and the final), the Sharjah Cricket Stadium (which will host the Eliminator), and Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium in Abu Dhabi.
Total of six teams will be seen contesting for the ultimate prize namely Abu Dhabi Knight Riders, Desert Vipers, Dubai Capitals, Gulf Giants, MI Emirates, and Sharjah Warriors. As ILT20 prepares to attract fans across the globe, let’s take a look at three teams which can win the inaugural edition of the competition:
1 MI Emirates
MI Emirates is owned by the most successful franchise of the Indian T20 League. Led by the legendary Kieron Pollard, they have several big names in their squad such as Dwayne Bravo, Nicholas Pooran, Trent Boult, Imran Tahir, Bas De Leede and many more. They have enough batting strength in their squad to rip apart any bowling attack and also have legendary T20 all rounders such as Pollard and Bravo along with Trent Boult to strengthen their bowling.
