The UAE T20x has been cancelled, after buyers were found for only two of the five planned franchises for the event, which was due to start next month.

“Following talks between the Emirates Cricket Board [ECB] and event promoter OPi, it has been mutually agreed that the planned UAE T20x franchise cricket league will not take place in the UAE this coming December/January,” a statement from the organisers read.

“The decision follows the conclusion of the Invitation to Tender process for tournament franchises.

“Both the ECB and OPi had been hopeful of achieving the sale of five franchise teams for the first year of the tournament.

“Whilst negotiations had been completed on two franchise teams and a further three were well advanced, it was felt that there was no longer sufficient time to close the sales process and to successfully deliver and promote a December event.”

The new Twenty20 competition, set to involve a variety of the world’s best-known players, had been planned to start on December 19, with the player-draft scheduled for next week.
