Joining the returning sides – Premium Americans, Premium Windies, Premium Paks, Premium Indians, and Premium Aussies – are two new franchises: Premium Afghans and Premium Canadians. Including these two teams brings fresh talent into the mix, adding some extra intrigue to this year’s tournament.

The first and second-placed teams compete against the third and fourth-placed teams in the semi-finals. The victors of these two clashes will face off in the APL Final on December 31st to decide on the 2023 champions.

Some high-profile names feature among the team rosters. Premium Windies boasts the services of Universe Boss Chris Gayle, who also takes over the captaincy.

All-rounder Dan Lawrence will lead Premium Americans while Pakistani left-arm quick Sohail Tanvir skippers Premium Paks.

Other notable players include Rahkeem Cornwall, who topped the runs chart last season, and leading 2020 wicket-taker Mario Lobban. Their exploits will be crucial in their respective teams’ title ambitions.

The tournament also continues to serve as an excellent platform for Associate players from Canada and Afghanistan to shine.

Players like Ihsanullah Janat, Ben Cutting and Navneet Dhaliwal will hope to make a name for themselves on the North American stage.

With the expansion, ICC backing and star power across the competition, the American Premier League’s second edition promises to be bigger and better.

The seven franchises will have their eyes firmly fixed on the glittering trophy when the action gets underway on Tuesday. May the best team win!
