But amid third Covid wave, the league organizers had to again postpone thier plans to launch the much hyped project.
Accoridng to the sources, currently, the ECB is exploring a window right after the IPL 2022 for the 1st season of UAE T20 League.
The window in June-July is likely to be finalized but the questions remain over the availability of the players. This being a year where Asia Cup is slotted in September & T20 World Cup in Australia in October & November, their is no other window available for the league.
Even if the league is held in June & July window, the question mark over the participation over the players will always remain.
