Eoin Morgan is relishing the prospect of starring in the first-ever T10 Cricket League, to be held in Sharjah between December 21-24 this year.
This latest bitesize version of the game will feature plenty of iconic names, with Morgan turning out for Kerala Kings and the likes of Shahid Afridi, Misbah-ul-Haq and Kumar Sangakkara all set to play.
“I’m extremely excited about it, the new concept of capturing peoples’ imaginations in 90 minutes in the space of 10 overs really does test our sport to the limit,” the 31-year-old, who captains England’s one-day and T20 sides, told Sport360° on Tuesday night at the event’s launch in Downtown Dubai.
“It encourages growing the game outside of the three main formats which is obviously huge and the love for the game over this side of the world is emphatic.”
Our in-depth interview with Eoin Morgan will feature shortly on Sport360.com.
