The player drafts for the Abu Dhabi T10 League were held on Monday (September 26). The sixth edition of the competition will take place in the UAE this year from November 23 to December 4. One of the best cricket leagues currently in existence is the T10 event, and fans love watching the players start out with a bang.
When it came to the player draft this year, only a few players from each squad's 2021 roster were retained. Some of the well-known names that their previous clubs kept for the forthcoming season are Dwayne Bravo (Delhi Bulls), Andre Russell (Deccan Gladiators), David Wiese (Deccan Gladiators), Mohammad Amir (Bangla Tigers), and Matheesha Pathiraana (Bangla Tigers).
Morrisville Samp Army and New York Strikers, the two new teams, have recruited some top players and will be led by David Miller and Kieron Pollard, respectively. Each team named one icon player for the season and signed up one platinum player before the draft.
Each squad consists of 16–17 players, and Sreesanth has been appointed as the Bangla Tigers' coach. After their recent triumph in the Asia Cup 2022, many Sri Lankan players have joined the league. Surprisingly, Tamim Iqbal, Bangladesh's star opener, was not selected by any of the teams in the player drafts.
