Teams for Super League one-day Ramadan Cup

The national selection committee has announced the four teams for the Super League one-day Ramadan Cup starting at the Gaddafi Stadium from November 11.

The selection committee headed by Wasim Bari first picked the top 60 performers (last season and from the just concluded tournaments) and then equally divided them in four teams.

"The teams are of equal strength and we expect the matches to be competitive besides producing some real good talent", Wasim Bari said.

The teams will be allocated names once the sponsorship deals are finalized. Moin Khan was named captain of Team A, Shoaib Malik of Team B, Azhar Mahmood of Team C and Wasim Akram of Team D.
