Watson has been selected by <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/Karachians" target="_blank">Karachians</a> franchise as their Icon Player for the second edition of the eight-team <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/t10-cricket-league-2018" target="_blank">T10 Cricket League</a>, which will commence from November 23 in <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/UAE" target="_blank">UAE</a>. Just like how T20 cricket revolutionised the sport globally, I think T10 too will modernise the sport and will definitely be an exciting spectacle for the viewers, he told <em>Gulf News</em>. <p></p> <p></p> Just like how T20 cricket revolutionised the sport and honed the skills of a player, I think this innovation shall also bring about a positive impact on the sport and grow fan bases across the globe, he added. I had spoken to some of the players who took part in the league last season, and they gave me some really positive feedback about the league. <p></p> <p></p>However, Watson does not think T10 should be played at international level at this point: There s already a lot of cricket going on currently so I don t think the format will immediately make it to the international scheme of things, but having said that I think the T10 concept is very interesting and there s always a space for introducing a new format to the sport to make it more interesting. <p></p> <p></p>T10 League has found recognition from <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/icc" target="_blank">ICC</a>. The other franchises to take part in the tournament are Kerala Kings (Icon Player: Eoin Morgan), Punjabi Legends (Shoaib Malik), Maratha Arabians (Rashid Khan), Bengal Tigers (Sunil Narine), Rajputs (Brendon McCullum), Northern Warriors (Darren Sammy), and Pakhtoons (Shahid Afridi).
