The Titans will take part in a three-day tournament held at the state-of-the-art Zayed Cricket Stadium in Abu Dhabi in November. The tournament will feature six domestic champions from leagues across the world and will crown the World T20 Club Champions.

Briefly.co.za gathered that the Titans will be joined in Abu Dhabi by Hobart Hurricanes of Australia, the Yorkshire Vikings (England), Boost Defenders (Afghanistan), Lahore Qalandars (Pakistan) and another team yet to be announced

Sacricketmag.com reported that officials from the Titans were excited to take part in the tournament which would allow domestic teams to measure their comparative strengths and weaknesses against international opposition.

The tournament will feature some of the best T20 players from across the planet. The ever popular and big-hitting Chris Gayle has been confirmed as taking part.

Other confirmed stars include Hobart Hurricanes will call on the bowling services of England's Tymal 'T' Mills, Gary Ballance will figure for Yorkshire Vikings, Yasir Shah will line up for Lahara Qalandars, and the Titans, meanwhile, will be led by all-round powerhouse Albie Morkel.

It remains unclear at this early junction whether the newly retired (from international duties) AB de Villiers will join his team in Abu Dhabi. The South African legend did note he would be available for Titans duties after his retirement from international cricket.

The tournament will start on 4 October and conclude on 6 October 2018.
