T10 Cricket League, another fun-filled edition of the game to be started today. The four day tournament is expected to grab audience attention as likes of Shahid Afridi, Virendar Sehwag, Eoin Morgan, Sarfaraz and Shoaib Malik gear up to perform.

Earlier the organizers had decided to use pink ball instead of white but they reversed the decision later. The tournament format is round-robin league stage, in which each team, divided into two groups, will play each other twice. This will be followed by a knockout stage in which each of the top three teams of each group play each other followed by the semi-finals and the final.

In the opening game Bengal Tigers will face Kerala Kings while in the second match of the day Pakhtoons will meet Maratha Arabians. Captain of the Pakhtoons team Shahid Afridi said, “Sharjah has always been a special venue. As soon I was told about T10 cricket, I got thrilled and I immediately said that I want to play it.”  The final will be played on Sunday.
