The 4th season of the Abu Dhabi T10 League will be held from January 28 to February 6 at the iconic Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi, where eight teams will play 29 matches. A brainchild of billionaire businessman Nawab Shaji Ul Mulk, the ten-over annual franchise tournament has garnered immense support by the public as well as global official bodies ever since its inception in 2017. The slam-bang league is the only 10-over cricket tournament to be sanctioned by the International Cricket Council (ICC) and licensed by the Emirates Cricket Board.
The matches will have a 10-over-a-side format with a time duration of 90 minutes, and the tournament will be played in a round-robin format followed by semifinals and the final. Each bowler gets only 2 overs a match and Powerplay lasts 3 overs with a maximum of 2 players allowed outside the 30-yard circle. After the 3 overs, a maximum of 5 players allowed outside the circle.
The eight participating teams, much like last season, have been divided into two groups of four teams each. While the defending champions Maratha Arabians are slotted in Group A with Bangla Tigers, Delhi Bulls, and Northern Warriors, last year’s runners-up Deccan Gladiators form Group B with Qalandars, Team Abu Dhabi, and Pune Devils.
The eight teams will play three matches in the league phase before moving into the Super League on February 1, 2021. A total of 12 matches in the group stage, followed by 12 more in the Super League, will give way to the playoffs from February 5. The top two-ranked teams will take on each other in the Qualifier for a place in the final, while the third and fourth-ranked teams will be up against each other in Eliminator 1 on February 5. Thereafter, the runner-up in the Qualifier will play against the winner of Eliminator 1 in Eliminator 2 for a place in the final on the same day.
