    PCB issues NOCs to Pakistan players participating in T10 League

    The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has finally decided to issue No Objection Certificates (NOC) to its players who have been drafted to take part in the T10 League. This will be the second edition of the lucrative T10 League and will take place later this year in Sharjah. The inaugural season was a runaway success, and earlier this year, the ICC officially recognized the tournament as the world’s first T10 cricket league.

    On Wednesday, the PCB said in a statement that after much consideration, it has decided to issue NOCs to some of its players. The board was careful in its research, having procured and processed detailed information from the ICC as well as the Emirates Cricket Board regarding the tournament. A number of Pakistan players were earlier banned for spot-fixing in the PSL, including Pakistan internationals Nasir Jamshed and Mohammad Irfan.

    We needed to ensure T10 league was corruption-free: PCB
    The statement also read, “Furthermore the PCB’s own Anti-Corruption Unit also carried out a thorough review.” Initially, the PCB Chairman Ehsan Mani had revoked permissions granted to some of its players to participate in the T10 league. He insisted that the board must first verify and ensure that the event was transparent and free from corruption.

    Mani also stated that PCB demanded to know the origins of the financial details of the tournament and had also sought details and approval from the ICC. The statement said that the ICC had given their approval for member boards to issue NOCs to their respective players and allow them to participate in the league. This prompted the PCB to issue NOCs to Pakistan players for the T10 League.

    “As a consequence of this review, the PCB has decided to allow its players to take part in the T-10 league and like the first edition the PCB will send its own integrity officers to monitor the league,” the statement read. It also added that further requests for NOCs will be assessed on a case by case basis.

    Pravin Tambe joins Karachians for the second season

    Although 47 years old, cricket seems to be still running in every vein of Pravin Tambe. The leg-spinner shot up to fame when he made his IPL debut at 41 for the Rajasthan Royals. He has played 33 IPL games since 2013 and accounted to 28 wickets. However, he hasn’t played a single game in the last two seasons. But, Tambe isn’t among those who would give up as yet.

    The veteran cricketer has now signed up for the T10 cricket league. He will be representing the Karachians in the second edition of the league and will join the likes of Shane Watson, Jofra Archer, Mohammad Nawaz, Isuru Udana and others. Also, he would be back with his previous IPL coach Tom Moody (SRH).

    Karachians announce the news on Twitter
    The second edition of the T10 cricket league will be played from 23 November 2018 to 2 December 2018. Some of the biggest stars will be taking part in this shortest version of cricket. The league was first approved and backed by the Emirates Cricket Board. In August 2018, the International Cricket Council (ICC) has officially sanctioned the league.

    The matches will be 10-overs a side and the duration of each game will just be 90 minutes. Eight teams will battle it out in a round-robin format in the group stages which will be followed by the semi-finals and the final. All the matches of this tournament will be played at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium. Kerala Kings led by Eoin Morgan will go into the tournament as the defending champions.

    “Thank you for your recommendations. We have selected Pravin Tambe from India. #SquadGoals #YehKhelHamaraHai #Karachians #karachi #T10league #T10 #Cricket #Sports #Crictainment #Pakistan #BusAbDus,” wrote the Karachians on their Twitter handle to announce the news.

    When is the T10 League and what is new for Season 2? Everything you need to know about the Sharjah-based tournament

    What is the T10 League?
    The T10 League returns to Sharjah Cricket Stadium from November 23 to December 2, 2018.

    The league, a privately-run venture endorsed by Emirates Cricket Board and the International Cricket Council, has been expanded for the second season. It is up from six teams in its debut campaign in 2017 to eight this time around.

    Matches are 10 overs per side, and last for a little over 90 minutes each. The teams will be split into groups, ahead of a knock out stage and then final.

    How to watch it on TV:
    The competition will be broadcast live in the UAE on Ten Cricket.

    Admission starts at Dh10, and tickets are on sale online here. There is also an “early bird” discount of 25 per cent.

    Who is playing?
    Many of the game’s leading short-format players are involved. Twenty20 globetrotters like Chris Gayle, Brendon McCullum, Sunil Narine and Rashid Khan are standout names.

    England captain Eoin Morgan led Kerala Kings to the first title last year and should be back again, while Darren Sammy, who won the World T20 twice as captain of West Indies, is also playing.

    Sarfraz Ahmed was Bengal Tigers captain last time. But the T10 clashes with Pakistan’s Test series with New Zealand, so he will miss out this time.

    The teams:
    Kerala Kings

    Defending champions

    Coach: Daniel Vettori

    Leading players: Chris Gayle, Eoin Morgan, Paul Stirling

    Maratha Arabian

    Coach: Wasim Akram

    Leading players: Rashid Khan, Alex Hales, Lasith Malinga


    Coach: Dean Jones

    Leading players: Shahid Afridi, Colin Munro, David Willey

    Punjabi Legends

    Coach: Mushtaq Ahmed

    Leading players: Shoaib Malik, Hasan Ali, Luke Ronchi


    Coach: Tom Moody

    Leading players: Shane Watson, Jofra Archer, Mohammed Irfan

    Bengal Tigers

    Coach: Stephen Fleming

    Leading players: Sunil Narine, Jason Roy, Morne Morkel

    Northern Warriors

    Coach: Robin Singh

    Leading players: Darren Sammy, Rovman Powell, Wahab Riaz


    Coach: Herschelle Gibbs

    Leading players: Mohammed Shahzad, Chris Lynn, Brendon McCullum

    The big news
    Last year’s T10 League was well-populated by star-name Pakistan players. Their presence in the second edition seemed highly doubtful when Salman Iqbal, the president and co-owner of the leave, quit in September.

    In giving up his role, the media mogul, who also owns the Karachi Kings franchise in the Pakistan Super League, questioned the T10 competition’s integrity, and warned Pakistan players to avoid it.

    The new regime at the Pakistan Cricket Board responded by putting a block on their players being involved, until they had more information.

    However, it was announced at the end of October that Pakistan players would be given no-objection certificates by the PCB, freeing the likes of limited-overs specialists Shoaib Malik to play.

    However, Pakistan will play their second Test against New Zealand in Dubai on November 24, so Test players like Sarfraz will not be involved in the 10-over league.

    More Indians
    Last year, Virender Sehwag was the lone Indian involved. This time around, there will be eight. They might not be the big-name, established stars of the current day, which all leagues crave to have involved.

    But there is a little bit of stardust, in particular in the form of Zaheer Khan, the former left-arm pace-bowler who was a World Cup-winner with India in 2011. Fellow former Test players Praveen Kumar and RP Singh are also set to play.

    “The growing desire by senior Indian cricketers to play in the T10 League reflects the increasing popularity of the game,” Shaji Ul Mulk, the chairman of T10 League, said.

    New players to look out for
    The T10 League will provide an opportunity to see some players who thrive beyond international cricket’s mainstream.

    Hazratullah Zazai (Afghanistan, Maratha Arabians)

    Earned a slice of history, as well as global fame, when he hit six sixes in an over in the Afghanistan Premier League in Sharjah.

    Benny Howell (England, Kerala Kings)

    A seam bowler with a variety of slower balls who is regularly among the thriftiest in English county cricket’s T20 Blast.

    Sandeep Lamichhane (Nepal, Kerala Kings)

    The leg-spinner is currently on a global grand tour that might take in as many as 10 limited-overs leagues – including three in UAE.

    Ali Khan (United States, Bengal Tigers)

    The pace bowler was one of the leading wicket-takers in the Caribbean Premier League, and also came to Sharjah for the APL.

    Qais Ahmed (Afghanistan, Rajputs)

    The teenage legspinner was man of the match in the APL final, where he bowled Balkh Legends to the inaugural title.

    UAE involvement
    Part of the remit for the competition is to have representation from the host country.

    In Season 1, two players per 16-man squad had to be from UAE, with one place in each starting XI reserved for one of them.

    The same is likely to apply in Season 2, although the national team players have yet to be assigned to teams and the process has altered.

    The organisers are attempting to increase the pool of players available to the UAE by running dual talent hunts in India and Pakistan. The successful applicants will be offered three-year contracts to work in the companies run by the competition’s owners, with a place in the national team a possibility after three years of residency.

    Stay order against T10's Karachians in Pakistan

    In a blow to the UAE-based T10 league, the Sindh High Court has issued an interim order against promoting the "Karachians" in any manner in Pakistan. The directive comes after Karachi Kings, the Pakistan Super League (PSL) franchise, sought a stay order from the court against the UAE T20 league's usage of the name Karachi. As per the court's order, TV and radio organisations in Pakistan are barred from broadcasting, advertising or promoting anything from the T10 league related to the Karachians - or any other team using Karachi in their name in Pakistan or abroad - till the case's next hearing on November 15.

    The Karachians is one of the eight franchises in the T10 league, which apparently draws its franchise names from various parts of the subcontinent, for example Kerala Kings, Bengal Tigers and Punjabi Legends. The league is set to be played in Sharjah from November 21.

    In response to the writ petition filed by Karachi Kings owner Salman Iqbal against the T10 management, the court issued its directive to the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA). Until yesterday, the Karachians - which is owned by a Pakistani based in the UAE - had been actively involved in the promotion of the league and their team in Karachi and Lahore. The T10 league has been operating in Pakistan in this manner through Pakistani directors.

    Earlier this week it was learnt that five out of the six PSL franchises had written a letter to PCB chairman Ehsan Mani, voicing concern over what they felt was encroachment by the T10 league into what they consider their territory. In their letter, the PSL franchises said it was "a mean attempt by a foreign entity to target Pakistani cricket viewership market despite the fact that the T10 Cricket League has no indigenous affiliation with Pakistan or people of Pakistan", and asked, among other things, that the PCB prevent its players from participating in the league.

    The PCB, which had already decided to hand players the required No-Objection Certificates needed to feature in the T10 league after initial concerns, is yet to respond to the PSL franchises.

    T10 chairman Nawab Shajiul Mulk was confident that the court will cancel its order after hearing their side of the argument. "It's a temporary thing and our lawyers are confident that the injunction is not based on sound principles," Mulk told ESPNcricinfo. "We are putting up our own argument [at the next hearing] on November 15, and this injunction will be cancelled.

    "This is all based on the use of word Karachi, but if you see there are a lot business with the name Karachi included.

    "But the main point here is that Karachi Kings, from what I know, is a brand name that belongs to the PCB, not to individuals because that's how the league operates. So our counter argument will be that it's the PCB's decision to allow or not to allow this and Karachians is the name actually approved by the ICC and we have a document. So we are on a sound footing."

    PSL franchises had voiced concerns over the T10 league in 2017 as well, which was the tournament's inaugural year. It has expanded in its second year, with two new teams to added, one of which is Karachians and the other is Northern Warriors, whose owners are UAE-based Indians. Season one also featured "Team Sri Lanka", which has been rebranded this year. High-profile players like Rashid Khan, Chris Lynn and Brendon McCullum have committed to playing in the league this season.

    T10 League put their best foot forward to keep event clean

    Dubai: The organisers of upcoming T10 League will spare no efforts to ensure that the event is protected from any form of corruption following International Cricket Council (ICC) booking former Sri Lanka cricketer Dilhara Lokuhettige with three counts of breaching the Emirates Cricket Board’s (ECB) Anti-Corruption Code during the 2017 edition of this event.

    The ICC’s Anti-Corruption Unit monitored the tournament on behalf of ECB last year and Lokuhettige has now been provisionally suspended following their probe and given 13 days to respond to the charges.

    The T10 League officials are delighted that their efforts to keep their event clean has borne fruit.

    Speaking to Gulf News, Col. Arvinder Singh, chief operating officer of the T10 League, said: “Lokuhettige had tried to influence one of the players and the player reported it. In fact, Lokuhettige had nothing to do with the T10 league as he was neither a player nor an official of the event. The young player who was approached informed the team management and they reported the incident. ICC did its own investigation and have come out with some findings now.

    “We fully support and appreciate the efforts of ICC in their endeavour to keep the game of cricket clean including T10 League and all other leagues though the charged person was not connected with our league which was held from December 14-17 last year.”

    Singh then went on to reveal that for their oncoming edition. stronger measures are in place. “We have always worked and will continue to work closely with the ACU to keep the T10 League clean. For the coming edition, we will have one Anti-Corruption person with each team and will stay in the same hotel on the same floor of the team. Nobody else other than the team will be allowed to stay on the same floor. Only the players and the support staff of that particular team will stay on that floor,” said Singh, who carries with him the experience of being the former CEO of Kings XI Punjab and Gujarat Lions in the Indian Premier League.

    “Unlike last year when it was only a four-day event, this time it is a 12-day event and hence we will have an ACU supervisor throughout the league with four managers from the ACU and eight individuals from the ACU for each of the teams.”

    When Gulf News contacted the ECB, Zayed Abbas, the spokesperson and ECB board member, said: “It was an ICC process on behalf of T10 and ECB is involved as it falls under the ECB code of conduct.”

    Singh then revealed that all arrangements to prevent corruption will commence early. “Each team will have Anti-Corruption lecture sessions. This will include even the physios as well and team owners. Any player who has to go outside or meet somebody or an event has to take permission. Anybody who is involved with the league, if he finds anything wrong, is bound to report it. We are making foolproof arrangements,” added Singh.

    Wasim Akram to continue working with T10 League

    Former legendary pacer Wasim Akram will be part of both T10 League and the Pakistan Super League (PSL), Cricket Pakistan learned on Thursday.

    Former Pakistan captain Akram — who is associated with the T10 League as the talent hunt director and is also a part of the coaching staff of Maratha Arabians —joined the PSL franchise Karachi Kings as the president following the departure of veteran all-rounder Shahid Afridi.

    Interestingly Afridi parted ways with Karachi after refusing to give up his T10 League contract on the demand of the PSL franchise.

    According to sources, Karachi asked the same from Akram as well, however, he also refused to give up the contract by saying that associating with cricketing activities is his profession and he will continue to provide services where ever asked.

    Karachi owner Salman Iqbal was the co-partner of T10 League, but ended his association with the competition after differences with other partners.

    On the other hand, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has given no objection certificates (NOC) to some national players for the league.

    Pakistan coach Mickey Arthur has asked PCB to keep some players away from the league due to the upcoming 2019 ICC World Cup.

    Following that, left-arm Mohammad Amir was not allowed to sign with the T10 league while veteran all-rounder Shoaib Malik has also distanced himself from the competition by announcing on his official Twitter — account that he wants to spend time with his newly-born son.

    However, sources claimed that Malik’s decision to not take part in the league was due to PCB’s pressure.

    Meanwhile, most of the national cricketers are unlikely to take part in the tournament because of the upcoming three-match Test series against New Zealand.

    However, Shahid Afridi, Shoail Tanvir, Imran Nazir, Aamir Yamin, Mohammad Irfan Jr., Wahab Riaz, Junaid Khan, Mohammad Sami, Umar Akmal, Anwar Ali, Hasan Khan, Kamran Akmal, Rahat Ali and Mohammad Nawaz will be taking part in the tournament starting from November 21 in Sharjah.

    Pakhtoons pick Shahid Afridi to lead the team

    Shahid Afridi may have bid adieu to international cricket but the cricketer is still a hot name in franchise cricket circles. The former Pakistan captain is set to take the field in the T10 League scheduled to begin in the UAE from Wednesday and he has been picked as the captain for the Pakhtoons once again.

    Afridi had a memorable outing in the inaugural edition of the T10 League – cricket’s latest and the shortest version – as he took the first hat-trick of the format in the very first match he played, against Maratha Arabians led by Virender Sehwag. He then led the side to the playoffs with an all-win record and there too, the Pakhtoons defeated Bengal Tigers to advance to the semi-finals. Afridi took on wicket for 2 runs and then belted 23 off 10 balls. The Pakthoons’ dream run, however, was ended by Punjabi Legends despite Afridi’s 17-ball 41 (five sixes).

    Pakhtoons to play defenders Kerala Knights in 1st game
    The Pakhtoon management felt Afridi is capable of resuming from where it ended last year and picked him again to lead the side this year. Pakhtoons will face holders Kerala Knights in their first game of the tournament in Sharjah on November 21. Afridi’s side is clubbed with Sindhis, Rajputs besides the Kings in Group A of the tournament. Pakthoons will play Rajputs on November 23 and Sindhis on November 24. It confirmed the news of selecting Afridi as the captain in a tweet on Wednesday.

    The Pakhtoons have South African Colin Ingram as their vice-captain this time while Afridi is also the icon player besides being the captain.

    The second edition of the T10 League will be a 12-day affair and features six teams instead of four in the inaugural edition. The final of this edition will be played on December 2.

    The 38-year-old Afridi has been performing with flying colours in the Pakistan Super League as well and will be representing the sixth team that will be playing in the fourth edition of the tournament beginning in February 2019.

    Aamer Yamin takes four wickets in four balls in the 2018 T10 league

    Pakistan pacer Aamer Yamin created history in the ongoing 2018 T10 League as he picked up four wickets in as many balls in Bengal Tigers' 36-run win over Northern Warriors. Chasing 131 runs to win, Northern Warriors got off to a great start as Lendl Simmons and Dwayne Smith scored 33 in four overs before Sunil Narine pulled Tigers back into the attack by taking two wickets in two balls including the important one of Andre Russell for a first-ball duck. Nicholas Pooran tried to score some quick runs before he perished to Ali Khan for 14.

    Simmons, who was keeping his team in the hunt, was dismissed by Yamin for a well-made 44. That's when the floodgates opened for Tigers as Yamin dismissed Rovman Powell, Ravi Bopara and Hardus Viljoen to end with four wickets off four balls.

    By then, the game was all but over for Warriors as they managed to score just 94 runs in 10 overs. Aamer Yamin ended with figures of 2-1-4-4, numbers that are considered too good for T20s, leave out T10s.

    Earlier in the day, Jason Roy's 29-ball 60, along with Sherfane Rutherford's 47 off 21 balls, helped Tigers put on 130/1 in their 10 overs. South Africa international Hardus Viljoen was the only bowler to pick up a wicket for Tigers as he finished with figures of 1/8 in his two overs.

    With this win, the Bengal Tigers opened their 2018 T10 campaign with a huge win over Warriors and will look to continue the winning momentum going into the tournament. Sindhis take on Kerala Knights in the second game of the day while Maratha Arabians and Punjabi Legends play each other in the final match of the day.

    Records tumble in action-packed second edition of T10 League

    The second edition of the T10 League promised bigger and better action with eight teams battling it out in Sharjah over 12 days.

    With top stars from across the world, including eight prominent Indian names, led by Zaheer Khan, in the mix the T10 League saw some memorable action in Sharjah, raising the bar in an already enthralling tournament.

    The cricket was of high quality with some incredible records set this year. Here we take a look at a few of them.

    Highest team total

    Northern Warriors won the second edition of the T10 League.

    Eventual champions Northern Warriors raised the bar to a new level when they amassed 183 in 10 overs – the highest in the first 10 overs in any cricket format – against Punjabi Legends.

    Northern Warriors scored at nearly 20 runs for 10 straight overs against the Legends with Nicholas Pooran hitting 77 from just 25 deliveries and Andre Russell hitting 38 from nine. To put that into context, the very next day the Pakistan Test team scored 207-4 in an entire day’s play against New Zealand in the Dubai Test.

    Hales goes hammer and tongs

    In the opening match of the tournament, Afghan opener Mohammed Shahzad went berserk as he cracked 74 not out from 16 balls as the Rajputs chased down a 95-run target against the Sindhis in four overs. His 74 was the highest individual score in T10 before England’s Jonny Bairstow cracked an unbeaten 84 off 24 balls for the Kerala Knights against Bengal Tigers.

    That record too didn’t stand for long as Bairstow’s compatriot Alex Hales – batting for Maratha Arabians – smashed 87 not out against the Tigers, which remained the highest score in the tournament.

    Yamin’s double hat-trick

    There was something in it for the bowlers as well. Bengal Tigers’ Pakistani all-rounder Aamer Yamin registered a rare double hat-trick when he picked up four wickets in four consecutive deliveries against Northern Warriors. The same day, veteran Indian cricketer 47-year-old Pravin Tambe of the Sindhis picked up 5-15, including a hat-trick, against Kerala Knights.

    Warriors all-rounder Hardus Viljoen finished as the league’s top bowler with 18 wickets from nine games.
