Cape Town - After their final RAM SLAM T20 Challenge game was washed out at the Wanderers on Sunday, the Knights failed to qualify for the upcoming semi-finals.

However, this gave Knights team-mates David Miller and Marchant de Lange the opportunity to fly out earlier to the United Arab Emirates for the inaugural Ten10 Cricket tournament.

According to the website, one of the six teams in the competition, Bengal Tigers snapped up the South African duo.

The first four-day, six-team competition in a new 10-overs-per-side format will start at Sharjah Cricket Stadium on Thursday, December 14.

The 10-over-a-side matches will last 90 minutes and include two-over Powerplays.

The tournament will star the likes of Virender Sehwag, Kumar Sangakkara, Shahid Afridi, Eoin Morgan, Misbah-ul-Haq, Dwayne Bravo and Sarfraz Ahmed.

Miller has had a sensational start to the season with the bat after scoring 323 runs with an average of 64.60 in his ten games for the Knights.

De Lange, on the other hand, has taken six wickets for the Free State-franchise with the best of 2 for 25 in his seven games.

Other South Africans participating include Rilee Rossouw, Hardus Viljoen, Roelof Van Der Merwe and Cameron Delport.
