Mudassar Nazar joins T10 Sports Management as technical director

Pakistani cricket legend Mudassar Nazar has been appointed as the technical director for T10 Sports Management (TSM). The former all-rounder joins the team just before the upcoming season of T10 League in Abu Dhabi, scheduled to be held at the Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium from January 28 to February 6.

Nazar was an opening Test batsman for Pakistan, scoring over 6,500 runs and taking close to 150 wickets in international cricket. In 1982, he earned the title of ‘Golden Arm’ at the iconic Lord’s for his match winning bowling spell against England. Following his retirement from professional cricket, he has held many administrative positions in the cricketing world, including two stints as coach for Pakistan in 1993 and 2001, and for Kenya in 2005.

Speaking about the importance of the T10 format, the legendary all-rounder called it an exciting format and said, “We are in the entertainment business, whether it was 100 years ago or it’s now. If the audience is not entertained, then we don’t move an inch. Any cricketer, who is in love with the game, will love to watch any format and this is a very exciting format. If I was still playing, I would have tried this format.”

T10 League is a ten-over cricket league that was launched by T-10 Sports Management (TSM), a company of the multinational and diversified conglomerate Mulk Holdings. The league has the approval of international cricket bodies including Emirates Cricket Board. This year’s tournament will feature international stars such as West Indies’ Chris Gayle and Andre Russell, and Pakistan’s Shahid Afridi, among others.

The eight teams in this extravaganza are Team Abu Dhabi, Maratha Arabians, Bangla Tigers, Deccan Gladiators, Qalandars, Delhi Bulls, Northern Warriors and Pune Devils. Originally scheduled to be played in November 2020, the tournament will now take place between January-February.
