Rovman Powell :
Winning the trophy both the times for Northern Warriors was a highlight as a player in my cricketing career. But now I have the opportunity to lift that cup this year as a captain! I am thankful for the Northern Warriors management for trusting in me and providing me this opportunity. Looking forward to the tournament to begin! I want all our fans to Keep supporting and keep cheering the Warriors.
Dasun Shanaka :
We have a good combination of all-rounders, fast bowlers and both left and right-handed batsmen in the team. Not just that, The Chennai Clan also strikes a perfect balance of experienced and young players. With Douglas Brown and Ian Bell by our side to coach, the boys are ready to take the field by storm!
Faf du Plessis :
My role as a captain would be to get the team together and create an environment wherein the players are having fun and being themselves. We have a good mix of players and I am confident of the Bangla Tigers doing well in the tournament.
Dwayne Bravo :
We came so close to being champions last season, and we have identified the areas we needed to improve this time around. So we have a good balance in the squad and it will now be about playing consistent cricket.
Wahab Riaz :
This season is crucial for the Deccan Gladiators. We had a great team last season, but couldn’t go far in the tournament. But this season we aim to win it and perform well right from the first game. Our squad combination is solid. We have some very experienced players who are match-winners and some raw talent who can change the game.
Liam Livingstone :
It’s a real pleasure to not only be representing the home team in the tournament but also captaining them, and I’m sure we’ll have superb support from fans across the entire country. Everyone should expect an exciting brand of cricket from Team Abu Dhabi that reflects this wonderful emirate and we have both world-class coaches and world-class players in our squad so our sights are firmly set on lifting the trophy for the first time .
