The World Cup boasts the highest prize money for tennis ball cricket anywhere in the world and is valued at a total of 250,000 Dirhams.

Mr. Bravo will be the face of the tournament in the lead-up to the third edition of the tournament, scheduled to be held from 8th - 13th March 2020. The week-long tournament will be held like in the first two editions at the historic Sharjah Cricket Stadium in Sharjah. The tournament will be staged under the aegis of the Sharjah Cricket Council, thanks to the able leadership of Waleed Bukhatir.

Mr. Bravo has been a white ball specialist for close to a decade and a half. He has been part of the two T20 World Cup wins for West Indies in 2012 and 2016. He was also part of West Indies’ 2004 Champions Trophy-winning squad as well. Currently, Mr. Bravo is a regular on the league circuit around the globe.

On his new role, Bravo said: “I am delighted to be the face of the 10PL World Cup of tennis ball cricket tournament. I have learned a lot of my key tricks that I am sure many of the players in the tournament will employ, especially the use of slower ball and yorkers. The tournament therefore promises to be the perfect platform for raw talents to showcase what they are capable. I am really looking forward to this competition.”

A total of 16 teams participated in the first two editions of 10PL-World Cup of tennis ball cricket and for this year nearly 40 expressions of interests have already been received by the organisers for an available 20 spots.

Speaking about the format Mr. Abdul Latif Khan said: “This format is very popular in the Indian subcontinent and the Middle East. It is the World Cup after all hence we have such huge prize money on offer. I am confident that the third edition will reach even bigger heights.”
