Adani Sportsline, a part of the Adani Group, acquired the rights to own and operate a franchise in UAE T20 League, entering into franchise cricket.
The UAE T20 League, licenced by the Emirates Cricket Board, will be an annual event with six teams competing in 34 matches. Top players from all cricketing nations are expected to be named to various teams. The league will also serve as a training ground for aspiring cricketers. Adani Sportsline's first major move overseas will be to "connect and engage with global fans" from across cricketing nations.
