The T10 format of the game is going strong. The Abu Dhabi T10 league is already three seasons old, and the fourth season of the league will get underway on January 28th, 2021. As the name suggests, the league will consist of 10 overs per side.
The league will consist of 8 teams, that will fight it out over the course of 10 days. The highly anticipated tournament will conclude on 6th February 2021. There are several big names that will take part in the league this year. On that note, let us take a look at 5 players to watch out for in the T10 league.
5. Mujeeb Ur Rahman
He is a bowler who can trouble even the best batsmen in the game. Mujeeb Ur Rahman is a man who bowls tight lines, is very economical, has subtle variations up his sleeve, and someone against whom the batsman cannot score easily. The 19-year-old spinner will turn out for the Bangla Tigers in the 2021 edition of the league. Mujeeb is certainly a name to keep an eye on in the upcoming tournament.
4. Colin Ingram
Colin Ingram is a batsman who can pulverize any bowling attack on his day. The left-handed South African batsman has been in decent form in the ongoing Big Bash League and has aggregated 258 runs at a strike rate of close to 130(127.09) thus far. Ingram will render his services for the Deccan Gladiators in the 2021 edition of the Abu Dhabi league.
3. Sunil Narine
His hand plays several tricks with the ball in hand. And, he can also be destructive with the willow when the need arises as well. In short, Sunil Narine is a cricketer who is an asset to any side he plays in limited-overs cricket. Narine will feature for the Deccan Gladiators in the 2021 edition of the Abu Dhabi League. And, if he can find form, not only will bamboozle batsmen with his guile, he will also strike some lusty blows with the willow.
2. Imran Tahir
He is 41, but he is surely not done yet. Imran Tahir still has the fire in him to go out and deliver his leg spinners on the cricket field. Tahir is a veteran in T20 cricket. The South African spinner has picked up 63 wickets in T20I’s and has also scalped 80 wickets in IPL cricket. Tahir will turn out for the Deccan Gladiators in the 2021 edition of the Abu Dhabi T10 league. And, apart from his leg breaks, and his well-disguised googlies, watch out for that celebratory run of his after he picks up a wicket.
1. Chris Gayle
Irrespective of the format and the opposition, Chris Gayle is always a name that will send a shiver down the spine of the opposition. And, during the 2020 edition of the IPL, Gayle was in blistering form. The legendary West Indies batsman scored 288 runs during the tournament and scored his runs at an average of 41.14. His strike rate too was close to 140(137.14) in the 13th edition of the IPL. If Gayle gets going, then there will be plenty of problems to ponder for all the sides. Gayle will offer his services for Team Abu Dhabi in the 2021 edition of the Abu Dhabi T10 league.
