The Emirates D20 2022 is all set to get underway on December 12. All the matches of the campaign will be held at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium in UAE. The 33-match tournament will continue till December 28.
The six participating teams in the tournament are Abu Dhabi, Ajman, Dubai, Emirates Blues, Fujairah and Sharjah. Fujairah will face Sharjah in the competition’s curtain raiser.
All the participants will face each other twice in a round-robin format in the league phase. The top four teams will qualify for the semis. While the table-toppers will take on the fourth-placed team in the first semi-final, the second and third-placed sides will square off in the other last-four clash.
The winners of the semi-final will lock horns in the final on December 28.
The previous edition of Emirates D20 took place earlier this year in June. Fujairah defeated Team Abu Dhabi by four wickets in the final to clinch the title after finishing as runners-up in the inaugural 2020/21 season.
Fujairah’s Usman Khan finished as the leading run-scorer with 411 runs in 12 matches and Ajman’s Shahnawaz Khan topped the wicket-taking charts, bagging 19 scalps in eight matches.
