Yuvraj and Gayle launched the event, which is tentatively scheduled to be held from February 18 to 23.

“I can’t wait to have a practice run. It’s a new and exciting format and its growth depends on how we start the first edition,” said Yuvraj.

Match-ups will be between two cricketers for a contest of 30 balls per player. If a player gets dismissed five times, his innings are considered to be over while each match will be determined by the number of runs scored.
