The fixtures and Singapore T10 League schedule aren’t out as the teams are also yet to be finalized, hence once the teams get finalized the fixtured would also be updated soon.
Singapore Association is coming up with a very unique concept and that is they will instate one franchise from 6 different countries thus 6 club franchises will compete against each other for the 10 over tournament in Singapore. The list of 6 countries whose franchises will feature in the league is as follows.
The countries have not decided who the franchise would be for the tournament but the fans are excited as they will get to see India vs Pakistan be it in an indirect way.
Women’s Team Participation
The good news is that the tournament won’t be dominated by just men, in fact, it would be the first tournament where women would participate at the same time. Hence every above-mentioned country will send 2 teams one being the men side and the other the women side.
The best part is that both sides must have single administration, and team management, and both men and women cricketers will have their practice sessions together.
This will allow women players from smaller teams to learn from their male counterparts and top coaches. The idea is to have one male and one female coach along with gender-balanced support staff for the teams.
