The T10 Abu Dhabi cricket tournament is returning this November
Catch cricket’s quickest wickets live at Zayed Cricket Stadium…
A tournament featuring cricket’s fastest and most exhilarating format, the T10s are returning to Abu Dhabi for a fourth time later this year.
Set to be held at Zayed Cricket Stadium between November 23 and December 4, the Abu Dhabi T10 is known for its quickfire wicket-shattering, big swinging, six-smashing, lightning-bowled, electric paced matches, typically concluded within a couple of hours.
The UAE was literally the epicentre of the cricketing world last year, hosting the T20 World Cup, the IPL and the 2021 edition of T10 Abu Dhabi which took place in late January/early February. The tournament pulled in some A-List cricketing legends too, with impressive performances from the likes Eoin Morgan, Andre Russell, Moeen Ali, Liam Livingstone, and Faf du Plessis.
