Other than the aforementioned three players, there will be other senior cricketers from around the world, who will be signed on for this two-day event that will be played on February 8 & 9, 2018. It will be hosted at St. Moritz.
Some of the other big-ticket players involved in the competition will be Dwayne Bravo, Abdul Razzaq, Mohammad Kaif, Mahela Jayawardene, Shoaib Akhtar, Michael Hussey, Lasith Malinga, Daniel Vettori, Jacques Kallis, Monty Panesar, Nathan McCullum, Grant Elliot and Owais Shah.
