UAE’s International League T20 to be Held Before PSL 8

UAE’s International League T20 to be Held Before PSL 8

The inaugural International League T20 (ILT20) will be held from January 6 to February 12 in 2023, according to the Emirates Cricket Board.

In a six-team league, worldwide superstars from all around the world will compete in the franchise T20 tournament. A total of 34 matches will be held in various stadiums in the UAE.

The Emirates Cricket Board has decided to hold the tournament in order to provide exposure to the talented cricketers in the UAE and provide them a platform to integrate with international players and showcase their talent to the cricketing world.


Five of the tournament’s six franchises are owned by Indian corporations. Shahrukh Khan, who owns the Kolkata Knight Riders in the IPL and the Trinbago Knight Riders in the CPL, has purchased the Abu Dhabi Knight Riders in the league.

Reliance Industries, which owns the Mumbai Indians, and GMR, which owns the Delhi Capitals, are among the other owners. The Glazer family, who control Manchester United, has also purchased an ILT20 franchise.

The tournament’s maiden edition will take place soon before the start of the eighth season of the Pakistan Super League (PSL), which takes place between mid-February and mid-March each year.

The ILT20 schedule may have an impact on player availability for the PSL, since back-to-back tournaments may cause players to withdraw owing to exhaustion.

Alex Hales and Jason Roy, two English cricketers, pulled out of the Indian Premier League (IPL) after PSL 7, claiming bio-bubble fatigue as the cause for their decision.
