The demand for cricketers has recently increased around the world due to the increase in the number of leagues. Previously, national cricket and international cricket were the main arenas for players. However, recently, some cricketers have even given league cricket priority over international cricket and national matches.
One of the most popular tournaments in the world right now is the Abu Dhabi T10 League. The 2021/22 edition of the tournament started on November 19th.
