Masters Champions League, UAE's first of its kind cricket league, hosted a grand dinner on Monday to announce the event details and officially launch the brand anthem. With an overwhelming attendance of over 300 guests, the night saw the presence of major industry leaders, VIP guests and Bollywood stars. The tournament will include six teams in its first year, with a total of 90 players participating -- 15 members per squad. The matches will only see cricket stars who have retired from the international cricket circuit. The inaugural MCL matches are set to take place at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Abu Dhabi's Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium and Sharjah Cricket Stadium, which have all previously hosted major cricket tournaments, including the IPL, as well as One-Day, Twenty20 Internationals and Test matches.
