T10 League Schedule 2018
The second edition of the T10 Cricket League (or TCL as it is called) will be played from Nov 23 2018 and will see eight teams participate in the competition for the ultimate prize in the 10-over format of the game. The 10-day tournament begins from November 23 at Sharjah Cricket Stadium.The complete T10 Cricket League schedule will be released soon and will found below.
The first season of the T10 Cricket League was played over 10 days with the eight sides facing off in a round-round cum knock-out format. The eight teams in action in the T10 Cricket League will be the six from the previous seasons Maratha Arabians, Rajput (earlier called the Colombo Lions), Pakhtoons, Kerala Kings, Bengal Tigers and Punjabi Legends and two new teams in Northern Warriors and Karachians and will see a host of Pakistani, Sri Lankan and players from around the world taking part in the tournament.
For the second season, this four-day competition will be be changed to a 10-day tournament played between November 23 and December 2 and an additional two teams will be added to it to make it an eight-side tourney. These two new teams are the Karachians and Northern Warriors while Team Sri Lanka will now be called Rajasthan Heroes and there will be players from all countries included in this one.
Matches will typically take 90 minutes to finish, which is half the length of a T20 these days and exactly the length of a football game. This means, that across the four days of the competition, teams will be able to play five games a day with much ease. The Sharjah Stadium also hosted the APL in October.
Teams are divided into two groups of four sides apiece this season. Group A has Kerala Kings, Karachians, Pakhtoon and Rajputs, while Group B has Punjabi Legends, Bengal Tigers, Maratha Arabians and Northern Warriors. The draw for these two groups was held on August 26.
At the end of the group stage of the competition, where all four teams in each of the two groups will play three matches each, all eight teams will be in action again. This time, however, they will play three matches each against teams from the other group – one each against three of the four teams.
The top four teams at the end of this second phase will qualify for the playoffs where the top team takes on the second-placed side in the first semi-final while third and fourth feature in an Eliminator. This will be followed by the second semi-final and the final. Schedule of t10 league is placed below.
