The most encouraging thing for us is the response of cricket boards across the globe who have sent 24 quality players to represent the six sides.

“These players will have the greats of the game Javed Miandad, Sir Vivian Richards, Shahid Afridi, Shoaib Malik, Daren Sammy, Imran Tahir and Colin Munro mentor them which is nothing less than a lifetime learning opportunity for these players.
