Inzamam to lead Lahore Badshahs in ICL
Inzamam-ul Haq will captain an all-Pakistani team Lahore Badshahs, while new recruit Damien Martyn will skipper the Ahmedabad Rockets in the Indian Cricket League (ICL) Twenty20 Grand Championship starting later this month.
The Badshahs and Rockets are the two new teams, taking the total number of sides to eight.
Announcing the team compositions, ICL Chairman-Executive Board Kapil Dev said, "A thorough thought process has gone into the selection of players and the objective has been to strengthen the existing teams and not merely carry out the process of star assortment.
"The ICL still remains firm in its commitment of providing a platform to promising domestic players to play the game at the highest level and with players who have done the same at the international level of the game," he added.
Mumbai Champs will be once again led by West Indian legend Brian Lara, while Chennai Superstars will have Australian Stuart Law at the helm.
Kolkata Tigers' rein will be in the hands of former New Zealand all-rounder Craig McMillan. Hyderabad, led by Inzamam in the inaugural edition, will now be captained by another Kiwi Chris Harris.
Delhi Giants will yet again have Marvan Attapatu as skipper and all-rounder Chris Cairns will return to lead Chandigarh Lions.
