It has been raining offers for veteran Indian batter Ambati Rayudu from the overseas T20 leagues since his retirement from IPL after winning the 2023 edition with the Chennai Super Kings. Rayudu was set to play for the Texas Super Kings in the Major League Cricket but backed out amid reports of BCCI likely of having a cooling-off period for retired players to be able to participate in other leagues. However, Rayudu later confirmed his participation in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) for St Kitts and Nevis Patriots and has now signed up for UAE's International League T20 as well, ahead of the 2024 edition.

Rayudu, who is a 6-time IPL champion, will be returning to the Mumbai Indians campaign after more than six years as he will play for the Kieron Pollard-led MI Emirates in ILT20 2024. Rayudu is one of eight new signings for MI Emirates for the second edition of ILT20 alongside Akeal Hosein, Odean Smith, Kusal Perera and Corey Anderson among others.

Among other new signings, veteran Australian opener David Warner, who will be free from his national Test duties in the first week of January, will be playing for Dubai Capitals, Delhi Capitals' sister franchise. Capitals have also signed Sam Billings, Mark Wood and Dasun Shanaka among others but haven't retained any of their two Indian signings, Robin Uthappa and Yusuf Pathan.
