A First Class Family Day Out

Emirates Airline Twenty20


Welcome to the Emirates Airline Twenty20

The highly anticipated Emirates Airline T20 Cricket Tournament returns in 2017 with a brand new format and new host venue.

The Emirates Airline T20 tournament 2017 will feature six international teams playing across two days on 23rd and 24th March. For the first year ever, the tournament will be hosted at the impressive, world class, Dubai Sports City ICC Academy.

Some of the biggest stars in cricket are expected to play the tournament including Darren Sammy, Jonathon Trott, Shahid Afridi, Jimmy Anderson, Brendon McCullum and Ian Bell to name a few.

Confirmed teams include the hugely popular Peshawar Zalmi Foundation and Lahore Qalandars from the Pakistan Super League, Lancashire Lightning (2015 T20 Blast winners), the MCC Emerging England XIBirmingham Bears (2016 RL Cup Winners) and Durham Jets. The full team line-ups will be announced in the weeks leading up to the tournament.

“I’ve been in the Emirates T20 over the last couple of years with Lancashire. The growth is great for the competition and the overseas teams bring a whole different profile to it and it’s also on the TV this year. It’s a great place to go, great facilities, we’re always made to feel incredibly welcome and the atmosphere will be good. We look forward to the Emirates T20 games because it raises that competitive edge that we are going to need when we get home”.
