The International Cricket Council (ICC) has officially approved the second session of the T10 league. This T-10 league will be held in Sharjah from 23 November. Approval from the highest institution of cricket is very important for the league.
In this league two new teams have been added this time. Now the T10 League will be played between eight teams.
An ICC spokesman told PTI today, “Yes, the ICC has approved the T-10 tournament. The organizers met all the conditions and formalities required for granting a cricket competition, after which they got the approval.”
Its noteworthy that this T-10 league is a domestic franchisee tournament of the Emirates Cricket Board. The Emirates Cricket Board is a associate Member of the International Cricket Council (ICC).
Although it has been noticed that granting sanction does not mean that the ICC will promote its patron or league or format. ICC only permitted it on a temporary basis.
