The three-team tournament will include Namibia’s Richelieu Eagles and South Africa’s DP World Lions. Initially, the tournament also included India’s Bengal T20 side but they withdrew from the competition after being barred by the Board of Cricket Control in India (BCCI).

After the conclusion of the tournament, Lahore Qalandars will also face Richelieu Eagles in two 50-over matches which are set to be played on 7 and 9 September.
