The sixth edition of the T10 League is underway, and we have already witnessed a few blockbuster clashes between the teams featuring in the ten-over competition. The competition is also gaining much traction from India as few prominent Indian players are marking their presence in the tournament.
The likes of Suresh Raina (Deccan Gladiators), Harbhajan Singh (Delhi Bulls), Sreesanth (Bangla Tigers), Stuart Binny (New York Strikers), Abhimanyu Mithun (Northern Warriors) are all part of the sixth edition of the T10 Abu Dhabi League.
According to the Board of Control for Cricket in India, Indian cricketers with contracts with IPL or domestic cricket club are not permitted to participate in other franchise leagues. Meanwhile, T10 Abu Dhabi's opening fixture between New York Strikers and Bangla Tiger featured yet another prolific former Indian cricketer, leaving Indian cricket fans scratching their head.
Notably, former Indian all-rounder and World Cup-winning player Yuvraj Singh was in the dugout while the side was chasing a huge total. Indian cricket fans quickly noticed Yuvraj Singh in the dugout of the New York Strikers and questioned if the Indian cricketer was part of the squad and would play in the tournament.
Notably, Yuvraj Singh is not part of the Strikers' squad in the capacity of a player and has joined the franchise as a mentor for the entire season. A couple of months ago, Yuvraj was appointed as the mentor of the US-based franchise as they mark their debut in the ongoing season.
Former Indian cricketer had also played the T10 League the same year for now defunct franchise Maratha Arabians. Meanwhile, New York Strikers has also managed to rope in Kieron Pollard, former England limited-over skipper Eoin Morgan, alongside power hitters Azam Khan and Paul Stirling in their side.
