Abu Dhabi: Abu Dhabi will have the world at its feet as it hosts its own inaugural Twenty20 tournament this weekend.

With a format that is different from money-spinning T20 leagues around the world, such as the Indian Premier League and Australian Big Bash, the $150,000 (Dh550,875) Abu Dhabi T20 will comprise teams from all over the globe.

The six sides vying for the title are New Zealand’s Auckland Aces, Pakistan’s Lahore Qalandars, Australia’s Hobart Hurricanes, England’s Yorkshire Vikings, Afghanistan’s Boost Defenders and South Africa’s Multiply Titans.

The three-day event, which begins on Thursday, will be broadcast live on OSN Sports to fans across 20 countries.
