Abu Dhabi T10 League 2022: Today, a two-game set will kick off Abu Dhabi T10 2022. While Deccan Gladiators will compete against Team Abu Dhabi, the home team, Bangla Tigers will face off against the New York Strikers.
Four additional teams are competing in this tournament: The Chennai Braves, Northern Warriors, Delhi Bulls, and Morrisville Samp Army. No Indian player is permitted by the BCCI to compete in overseas competitions.
However, a player loses his eligibility to participate in foreign leagues if he declares his retirement from both IPL and international cricket. We’ll look at seven Indian players who are a part of the Abu Dhabi T10 2022 in this list right now.
Abu Dhabi T10 League 2022: Here are 7 Indian Players Who Are Part Of The League
1. Yuvraj Singh (Mentor)
The mysterious all-rounder from India, Yuvraj Singh, has been chosen to serve as the franchise’s mentor for the upcoming season of the Abu Dhabi T10 League’s New York Strikers team. Sky Strikers, based in the USA, has purchased the brand-new Abu Dhabi T10 franchise. In both the 2011 and 2007 World Cup victories for India, he played a crucial role.
Former fast bowler S Sreesanth had a career marred by scandals and suspensions. He played for India in 27 Tests, 53 ODIs, and 10 T20 Internationals. After serving a 7-year sentence, Sreesanth did make a comeback to domestic cricket for Kerala in 2020; however, the experienced spinner decided to retire in March of this year after going unselected in the previous two IPL auctions. The Bangla Tigers, led by Shakib Al Hasan, will be represented by Sreesanth.
3. Nav Pabreja
This competition will also feature cricketer Nav Pabreja, who is based in New Delhi. He is an individual player with the New York Strikers.
4. Stuart Binny
The former all-rounder for India Stuart Binny retired in 2021 after playing in all three formats for the national side. Binny has since participated in competitions such as the Road Safety World Series. Binny will play for the new New York Strikers squad under Kieron Pollard.
5. Suresh Raina
In August 2020, former Indian batter Suresh Raina announced his retirement from international cricket. He played for Chennai Super Kings in the IPL until the team benched him. After the major auction in 2022 failed to draw any interested parties, Raina made the decision to depart all elements of Indian cricket a few months ago.
The 35-year-old participated in the Road Safety World Series with the Sachin Tendulkar-coached India Legends team prior to joining the T10 League. Indian cricket’s most renowned IPL player, Raina, will compete for the defending champion Deccan Gladiators.
6. Abhimanyu Mithun
A pacer for Karnataka and Royal Challengers Bangalore in the past, Abhimanyu Mithun has also been away from Indian cricket for a long time. The 33-year-old spinner, who represented India in four tests and five ODIs, was a part of the Indian Legends squad for the Road Safety World Series and will represent the Northern Warriors in the T10 League.
7. Harbhajan Singh
Legendary off-spinner Harbhajan Singh announced his retirement from all forms of cricket in December of last year after competing for the Kolkata Knight Riders in the IPL 2021 and helping India win two World Cups.
Since then, Harbhajan has participated in the Legends League Cricket and is a member of the Star Sports commentary team. The Delhi Bulls, who finished second last season and boast players like Dwayne Bravo, Tim David, and Rilee Rossouw on their roster, have secured the services of Harbhajan.
