Chris Gayle, S. Sreesanth, Sohail Tanvir, and Ben Cutting have been designated as captains for the upcoming second season of the American Premier League (APL). The fixtures for APL 2023 have been officially revealed. The tournament is scheduled to take place at Moosa Cricket Stadium in Houston, Texas, from December 19th to December 31st, 2023.

Chris Gayle, known as the Universe Boss, will lead the Premium Windies team and was instrumental in launching the APL a few months ago at Times Square in New York. Other prominent captains include S. Sreesanth for Premium Indians, Sohail Tanvir for Premium Paks, and Mohammad Nabi, the current captain of the Afghanistan team, guiding the Premium Afghans. Australian all-rounder Ben Cutting will assume captaincy duties for the Premium Aussies.

Dan Lawrence, the emerging English star who made his Test debut in Sri Lanka in 2021, will captain the Premium Americans. Navneet Dhaliwal, the captain who led Canada to the ICC T20 World Cup 2024 through the WT20 qualifiers, will take charge of the Premium Canadians in their neighbouring nation.

Chris Gayle, expressing his enthusiasm about captaining the Premium Windies, stated, "I am excited to wear the captaincy band of a Windies team again. Playing in America is like playing at home. Cricket as a sport had to find a place in the USA someday, and this is the best time to have a league like this. The tournament will not just give us an opportunity to show our experience to the local fans but all the young American cricketers who have qualified will get to learn a lot from this and take the game to the next level."

The designated captains for APL 2023 are as follows:

Premium Afghans: Mohammad Nabi
Premium Americans: Dan Lawrence
Premium Aussies: Ben Cutting
Premium Canadians: Navneet Dhaliwal
Premium Indians: S. Sreesanth
