ILT20: The mystery surrounding Moeen persists while GMR and Capri declare their squads

The fact that Moeen Ali has consented to play in the UAE League (ILT20) while having already registered for the CSA League raises the possibility that he will turn out to be a puzzle. On Thursday, the all-rounder from England, who had been named earlier in the team that is owned by the Chennai Super Kings in Johannesburg, was added to the team that will compete in Sharjah (Sharjah Warriors). The first two months of the 2023 season for both leagues will be played simultaneously.

Cricbuzz has received information from ILT20 sources indicating that he has consented to play in the league. Because of this, he will not be able to take part in the CSA competition. The CSK representative, Kasi Viswanathan, reacted with surprise when approached. “We have just recently learned. The CEO of the Chennai franchise indicated that they would inquire about it from the player. According to Cricbuzz’s understanding, Moeen has reportedly discussed his participation in the ILT20 with the league’s organisers and given his consent to do so anytime he is not playing for England.

The Capri side has expressed satisfaction with its final roster, which includes Moeen as a member of the mix. “When the best IPL teams are also looking for players, it has not been easy to put together a group,” said the manager. IPL teams are typically the players’ first choice, especially considering the potential opportunities that come with playing for an IPL team. However, we are pleased with the squad as it stands after its most recent additions. We have a couple of strong international all-rounders in Moeen, (Mohammad) Nabi, and Chris Woakes, as well as a batsman who is currently on a hot streak in Dawid Malan and an explosive opening batter in Evin Lewis.

“Our Afghanistan players such as (Rahmanullah) Gurbaaz, Naveen (ul-Haq), and Noor (Ahmed) are very familiar with the conditions in the United Arab Emirates, particularly in Sharjah. Included in this combination are a couple of dynamite finishers in the form of Chris Benjamin and Tom Cadmore, as well as a mystery spinner in the form of Mark Deyal. The line-up is finished off by JJ Smit and Bilal Khan, who both pace with their left arms. The head coach of the Sharjah Warriors, R Sridhar, expressed his team’s ecstatic satisfaction.

In the meantime, GMR, which has a stake in the Indian Premier League team Delhi Capitals, has also revealed their player roster. It will be known as Dubai Capitals from now on.

“Having been a member of Twenty20 cricket’s most lavish system, the Indian Premier League, for the past 15 years, we came to the conclusion that it was high time for us to spread our wings on the international popularity charts of this format of the sport. GMR Sports is well on its way to constructing the Capital Universe, which will feature a galaxy of cricket stars from all over the world, and the International League Twenty20, which is slated to begin play in the United Arab Emirates in January 2023, is the ideal stepping stone for the company to take in this direction. Kiran Kumar Grandhi, the managing director of the GMR Group, expressed his excitement about the prospect of relocating the GMR Group’s headquarters to a city of the same calibre as Dubai.
