Mohammed Kaif, said, "I have commentated on the Abu Dhabi T10, and always wanted to play in it because it is such an exciting format, finally I have got the chance and I cannot wait to step out on the pitch for it. Since it is such a fast-paced format, it becomes a game of skill and power, not fitness which is especially suited to former cricketers like us. The approach of each player is also to go all guns blazing from the first ball itself, so expect a lot of sixes, wickets and stunning catches throughout the tournament, which will get fans off their seats."
