PCB Backs Misbah despite failure in PSL 202023 March 2020 / SkyBook365 Cricket Editors Team
Islamabad crashed out without reaching the knockout stages for the 1st time.
Yuvraj retired from international cricket earlier this year and is not bound by the BCCI’s rules about active players not being able to play in leagues outside the country. Yuvraj will join familiar faces in Sri Lankan fast bowler Lasith Malinga and West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo in the side that will be coached by the former Zimbabwe captain Andy Flower. Yuvraj also played in the Global T20 Canada League where out of his six innings he scored 153 runs with the best score of 51 with a strike rate of 145.71. Bravo will continue to lead the side like last year, with Australian power-hitting batsman Chris Lynn was named the icon player of the franchise. The early seasons of the T10 league had their fair share of problems with corruption. This year, the tournament has shifted from Sharjah to Abu Dhabi and the organizers claim that the ICC will be involved in dealing with anti-corruption.
Yuvraj Singh, the former India allrounder, has declared his belief that 100-ball cricket could have an impact on the game similar to the creation of Twenty20. The Hundred is set to be launched in England next year, with the ECB deciding to promote a new format as part of its bid to attract fresh audiences. Although Yuvraj is not due to be involved - only one Indian player, Harbhajan Singh, entered the draft and he subsequently withdrew - he praised it as an exciting concept that may come "close to a revolution like T20". Also, Eoin Morgan, England's limited-overs captain, has described T10 as cricket's perfect vehicle for Olympic inclusion, Yuvraj said the Hundred could also be an option. As for the merits of 10-over cricket, Yuvraj said he was not sure about whether it would spread further, because “you don’t have any time to get set and get going”. Yuvraj made 6 off 6 balls in Maratha Arabians’ defeat against Northern Warriors as the T10 league opened for its third edition.
