ILT 20, Trials for UAE Players Underway

DUBAI: In the search for UAE talent, Franchise team, the Desert Vipers, conducted trials for UAE players in October in the Gulf nation.

Viper’s Director of Cricket and former Australian all-rounder Tom Moody had a chat with the players before the players showcased their skills to find a place in the Vipers team.

Speaking about the trials, Tom Moody said, “The thought behind the trial, is giving us an opportunity to have a look at players who are outside the immediate spotlight, in the T20 World Cup, as you have many players outside who would warrant a place in that squad.

We are also looking at the emerging players, the U-19 players. We have to pick four UAE players in the Vipers squad and two will be in our playing eleven, so it is important we get that selection right.”

ILT20’s other franchises have plans firmly in-place and will soon follow suit and host trials for the (UAE-based) players in the lead up to the ILT20, which will provide unequaled opportunities to the strong cricketing talent based in the UAE.

Franchise team, Dubai Capitals have started their first-round of scouting talent from the vast UAE cricketing-pool with registrations for their on-ground trials closing today, Tuesday November 8th (2022).

ILT20’s UAE players’ registration portal, which can be found via, opened last week where an astonishing number of interested UAE-based players have already expressed interest to compete in the League.

With the playing and selection following strict guidelines, applied by both Emirates Cricket and the ICC, and with only 24-coveted places available, the intent to impress and catch the eye of the Franchise scouts is extremely fierce.
