In what comes as a massive boost to T10 format, star cricketers such as Yuvraj Singh, Mohammad Hafeez, Angelo Mathews among few international cricketers are likely to feature in Qatar T10 League. It is no doubt that T10 format has been liked by the fans as it is thrilling and engaging. The two editions of the Abu Dhabi T10 League serve as a testament to the fact.

Now in the latest development, Qatar Cricket Association (QCA) is planning to organise its own T10 league. If things go as per the plans, then the fans might get to witness the inaugural season of the tournament which will go all guns blazing on December 7. Interestingly, renowned international cricketers are also likely to participate in the Qatar T10 League.
