It also became the first cricket league in the world outside of Australia and England. In the 2008–09 season, the league was renamed to the RBS Twenty-20 League and remained affiliated with the league until the 2009–10 season when it was renamed again to the Faysal Bank Twenty-20 League. In the 2014–15 season, the league was renamed to the Haier T20 Cup. The Haier T20 Cup was awarded annually to the league champion at the end of each season.
