Although the event is likely to be played in India, the organisers are also considering the option of hosting it in the UAE, where the initial matches of the Indian Premier League (IPL) were also played.

Lahore Lions will be representing Pakistan in the upcoming edition of the tournament after winning the domestic T20 competition.

“PCB Chief Operating Officer Subhan Ahmed has received the invitation and the board will reply to it officially after consulting chairman Najam Sethi,” revealed a PCB official.

“Lahore Lions will participate in the competition as they were the winners of the domestic T20 tournament.”

In the earlier editions of the tournament, Sialkot Stallions and Faisalabad Wolves had participated in the tournament, but neither of them was able to make it to the main round, having crashed out in the qualifiers.
