The 6ixty Announces Squads Of Teams, These T20 Superstars Are Ready To Fire

The six male teams that will compete in the inaugural edition of The Sixty, a 10-over competition sponsored by Cricket West Indies (CWI) and the Caribbean Premier League, revealed their lineups on Thursday, July 28. (CPL).

Six men’s teams—the St. Lucia Kings, the Guyana Amazon Warriors, the Barbados Royals, the Trinbago Knight Riders, the Jamaica Tallawahs, and St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots—will compete in “The 6ixty.” In addition, three women’s teams—Trinbago, Barbados, and Guyana—will compete in the first T10 tournament.

Chris Gayle, an icon of the West Indies, has joined St. Kitts & Nevis Patriots for the first 6IXTY season. Gayle serves as the tournament’s brand ambassador and it begins on August 24. Evin Lewis and Andre Fletcher, two top West Indies athletes, have also joined the Patriots. Dewald Brevis, a promising young South African, and Dwaine Pretorius, a talented all-arounder, join Gayle at the Patriots.

With the addition of Nicholas Pooran, Kieron Pollard, Sunil Narine, and Andre Russell, the Knight Riders Group-owned Trinbago Knight Riders appear to be in very good shape. The Knight Riders are the favorites to win the first 6IXTY tournament since all four of its players are seasoned T20 experts. In the Indian Premier League, Narine and Russell are both players for the Kolkata Knight Riders.

Star all-rounders Jason Holder and Kyle Mayers have been signed by the Barbados Royals, who share ownership with the IPL 2022 champion Rajasthan Royals. The franchise’s T20 administration recently removed Holder of his captaincy responsibilities and replaced him with South African batter David Miller. Obed McCoy, a West Indies pacer who also plays for the Rajasthan Royals, is also a member of the Royals team. Foreign players Harry Tector, Azam Khan, and Corbin Bosch have signed with the Royals.

With Rovman Powell, Brandon King, and Fabian Allen on their team, the Jamaica Tallawahs also appears to be quite powerful. Sandeep Lamicchane, the captain of Nepal, is another intriguing spin potential that they have signed. The other two foreign recruits for the Jamaica Tallawahs are Australian all-rounder Chris Green and Pakistani all-rounder, Mohammad Amir.

Shimron Hetmyer, a power hitter, and Shai Hope, a great wicketkeeper batter, have both signed with the Guyana Amazon Warriors. Along with Keemo Paul, Odean Smith, and Romario Shepherd join the team. They include South African wicketkeeper Heinrich Klaasen, Colin Ingram, and Paul Stirling among their foreign acquisitions. Roston Chase and renowned pacer Alzaari Joseph have both been signed by Saint Lucia Kings for the first 6IXTY competition.
