    [VIDEOS] CSA announces new franchise-based T20 league - SA20

    Cricket South Africa and SuperSport have signed an agreement to form a new company that will manage a dynamic new T20 competition.

    Plans for the competition are well under way with the first ball to be bowled in January 2023. January will then become the window for the league which will comprise of six privately owned franchises playing each other in a double round before the top three sides move to the play-off stages.

    “We are excited by the formation of something this fresh and invigorating, which also offers the opportunity for private investment into the franchises,” said Pholetsi Moseki, CSA CEO. “CSA has already received interest from a number of potential local and international investors.”

    Moseki emphasised that this is an entirely new event, adding that South Africa has a rich crop of talent who would benefit from exposure through a franchise league. He said that a sustainable business model had been created for both the league and the teams, with a healthy salary bill to attract the very best local and international players.

    The league also represents a fresh injection of funds into the sport in SA which will help grow the game.

    Modelled along the lines of T20 events worldwide, the focus will be on all-action cricket sportainment.

    Said Marc Jury, SuperSport CEO: “We are delighted to invest in a product that will change the face of South African cricket. There is an early-year gap in the calendar, so the timing is ideal.”

    SuperSport has committed to live broadcast of all the matches and will also produce the world feed for the international television market.

    FAQs

    What will the new league be called?
    This will be announced at the official launch of the league.

    Will there be a player auction/salary cap?
    The league will work collaboratively with the team owners and act in the collective interest of the league and teams.

    This will include discussions around player rostering and salary caps.

    A player auction will take place, at a date to be confirmed, in South Africa.

    Will teams be privately owned?
    Yes.

    CSA is actively in discussions with private investors who can add value to the league for franchise ownership.

    There is already considerable interest in this regard.

    Where will franchises be based?
    South Africa has good cricketing infrastructure and very supportive fans.

    Teams will have abundance of choice across all our international cricketing venues to base their teams.

    Will you allow international players?
    Yes.

    The league will feature international players alongside South African nationals.

    In each match day XI, there can be up to four international players.

    Will there be player demographic targets?
    No.

    When will matches be played?
    The inaugural edition is scheduled for January 2023.

    Over how many weeks will the first event be?
    Thirty-three matches will be played over three to four weeks.

    Will there be double-headers?
    Fixtures and details will be announced in due course.

    What will happen in year one with the Proteas touring Australia?
    The league is scheduled to be played in January each year and is scheduled to begin immediately after the Proteas tour to Australia in the launch year.

    Going forward we have a clear window.

    Any chance of women’s participation at some stage?
    Most definitely.

    The league is actively looking at the possibility of a women’s T20 event to coincide in the coming years.

    Do you have broadcast deals in place?
    Domestically, yes.

    The company will also launch an international media rights sales process.

    Will the league have a global broadcast reach?

    Yes.

    Will this be a once-off event, or will this be for the long term?
    Long term.

    Given the popularity of T20 worldwide, how confident are you of attracting big names?

    First, it will take place at a fantastic time of year where many of the big names will be available.

    The company is looking at a very attractive player salary bill per team that will rival other leagues around the world outside of the IPL.

    Why will this attempt succeed where other attempts in SA have not?

    The parties have invested significant sums of money into the joint venture.

    Governance and commercial sustainability are priorities for the board of this new entity.

    All successful leagues are underpinned by strong domestic TV rights deals, which has been secured for this property.

    Do you anticipate SA’s stars playing?
    Very much so. There is ample talent from which to assemble franchises.

    Also hearing that it will be auction based with up to 4 international players allowed, not sure how much money will be offered?
    Will Pakistan allow Babar/Shaheen and co to participate in this league if money offered in good.

    Sri Lanka and Bangladesh would also like a word. But yes it is what it is now. Aside from a few select test matches nobody cares about bilaterals anyway.

    If ICC wants more emphasis on the international calendar outside of major tournaments there needs to be a major rethink about how things are done.

    ICC themselves want more multi format T20/ODI WC's for mint money. To put things in perspective, ICC global rights will be less than IPL's global rights for broadcasting.

    I think it will be like this for few years and then some consolidation will happen with only 2-3 leagues surviving.

    Both the IPL and ICC broadcasting deals are ending in 2023. The current ICC deal is $2 Billion for 8 years and IPL deal is somewhere in the range of $2.5 Billion for 5 years

    That will be the starting point for both them for the new deal. I believe the IPL has set the base at $4.5 Billion. So one can only imagine where it will end up. This time around there is so much more competition for the rights. The current guess is in the neighborhood of $6+ Billion.

    The ICC is also playing it smart. I think they have separated the subcontinent rights as a package on its own. I think this will benefit them with a higher bidding number. Though not sure what that will be.

    Of course in the middle of all of this there is also the BCCI international broadcasting rights that will be up for bidding.

    So a lot of $$$$ numbers thrown around.

    IPL will fetch $6bn plus. BCCI international tender is expected to fetch more than $1.5bn.

    Both for 5 years.

    ICC rights will be for 8 years. 8 events, up from 6 from the previous cycle. So a $4 bn bid is to be expected.

    Looks like most of the franchises will end up being owned by IPL teams. CSK, DC, MI and RR have all expressed interest in buying. That is four of the six teams!

    This league could end up as a feeder for the IPL. Though not sure how much talent is coming through the ranks in SA.

    Former IPL kingpin Sundar Raman has a stake in the company that will try to catapult South Africa into the travelling T20 circus. That should convince potential investors that CSA are serious about their third attempt to secure a slice of the global tournament pie. Others will see the irony in Raman being cast as part of a solution to a problem he could be considered to have helped cause.

    A document headlined "MSL: Re-imagined", seen by Cricbuzz, was presented at a special CSA members council meeting on April 25. In it, Raman is listed as holding a 12.5% share in the company unveiled on Friday as the vehicle to drive the establishment of the tournament. CSA own 57.5% and broadcasters SuperSport the remaining 30%. The first edition of the as yet unnamed six-team competition is planned for January 2023.

    Accd. to Cricbuzz

    Expect loads of Indian investors in that case. They say that KP led consortium is interested in a team too.

    Bit surprised that KKR isn't interested in buying one.

    The simple problem for cricket in SA is that there is no passion or support for the game outside the small white community and thats why it will fail.

    Big blow for South Africa's World Cup hopes

    South Africa's chances of qualifying automatically for next year's ICC Men's Cricket World Cup have taken a hit following news the Proteas have withdrawn from January's three-match ODI series in Australia.

    The Proteas currently sit precariously in 11th place on the Super League standings, with only the top eight teams qualifying for next year's 50-over tournament in India.

    The three-match series in Australia was originally slated to run in mid-January next year, but the Proteas had asked for the games to be rescheduled so the series did not clash with their new domestic T20 league.

    New dates have been unable to be found, with Cricket Australia CEO Nick Hockley indicating the upcoming summer of cricket was already too crowded.

    "It is disappointing that Cricket South Africa will be unable to contest the ODI series in January," he said.

    "That said, we are delighted to be hosting South Africa for the three Test series which includes the Boxing Day and New Year’s Tests and with the comprehensive schedule of international cricket that will take place across Australia throughout the summer.

    "This will include the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup and a record six touring teams for the Men’s and Women’s international series as well as the twelfth season of the BBL and the eighth season of the WBBL.

    "We can't wait to see fans back at the cricket this summer."

    South Africa have ODI series scheduled against England and India prior to the completion of the Super League period and may face the challenge of the Cricket World Cup Qualifier just to win their way into the main tournament next year.

    Australia, meanwhile, currently sits eighth on the Super League standings with 70 points from 12 matches, with their next contest a three-match series against Zimbabwe commencing at the end of next month.

    CSA ANNOUNCES WITHDRAWAL FROM PROTEAS ODI TOUR TO AUSTRALIA

    JOHANNESBURG – Cricket South Africa (CSA) confirms that the Proteas Men’s team will not be playing the ODI series in January 2023 against Australia.

    The three ODIs which form part of the ICC Super League matches that determine direct qualification for the 2023 Men’s World Cup, were billed to take place in 2020. However, the Covid-19 pandemic necessitated its postponement.

    In a statement released on Wednesday, 13 July 2022, Cricket Australia said, “Cricket South Africa (CSA) had asked Cricket Australia (CA) to reconsider the dates of the three matches originally set aside for January 12-17 due to a clash with their new franchise T20 league, but CA announced today they have been unable to find alternative dates to reschedule the series.

    CSA Chief Executive Officer, Pholetsi Moseki said:

    “CSA is always keen on honouring its bilateral commitments. While CSA is committed to honouring its fixtures in respect of the Future Tours Programme there will sometimes be unforeseen circumstances that would negate this resolve. In the case of the Australia tour, CSA reached out to its counterpart months ago to reschedule the tour to mutually aggregable dates. CSA offered four options to that effect. Unfortunately, and to our disappointment, none of these were acceptable to Cricket Australia.

    “CSA has agreed that ICC award Australia the competition points. While we are saddened at losing the crucial points, we are confident that our in-form Proteas team will garner the requisite points through the remaining games to secure automatic qualification to the showpiece event in India next year.

    “As difficult as this decision has been for CSA, the long-term sustainability of our new T20 League is reliant on having all our domestic players available for this exciting new addition to the CSA calendar.

    “CSA is looking forward to be hosted by Cricket Australia for an enticing blend of cricket in the three-Test series which includes the Boxing Day and New Year's Tests in Melbourne and Sydney,” concluded Moseki.

    Are CSA so desperate for a money earning vehicle that they are willing to abandon international commitments? Surely the ICC needs to step in and impose a monetary fine to ensure other boards don't violate international commitments in the future.

    I don't think they will miss out during the qualifiers.

    Ireland, Zimbabwe, and South Africa - one from these three are supposed to go through. South Africa are very likely to finish ahead of Ireland and Zimbabwe.

    Oz stitched them up by withdrawing from the Test series, which no doubt hurt CSA financially + embarrassed or angered them.

    Seems like a full blown declaration of war. Launching a huge T20 league directly opposing the BBL in timing, competing for the same players but seemingly with bigger pay on offer. One or the other will not be sustainable (or the BBL will be much reduced, even if it doesn't die completely) over the medium term. I'd say they go head to head for 3 years or so, with BBL having the advantage of current contracts & stability but money talks in franchise cricket & if CSA franchise holders are willing to splash cash & get the bigger players, it could get interesting.

    CSA have to overcome the hurdle of corruption and poor management- isn't this the 3rd league they've tried to launch? But if they get the right support and don't mess up payments/planning.

    BBL has the advantage of stable country, trusted payments to players etc.

    The market for Cricket is still bigger in Australia vs South Africa. Australian Cricket Board is number 3 in terms of finances in the ICC whereas Cricket South Africa's finances have always been shaky. If Cricket South Africa thinks they can compete financially with Cricket Australia, they are in for a huge shock.

    Cricket’s most successful Test captain and former opening batsman, Graeme Smith, will lead the new T20 League overseeing all aspects (both cricketing and non-cricketing) and developing what is anticipated to be a dynamic brand that showcases the strength of South African cricket.

    Smith brings with him tremendous experience and understanding of the game, having worked in the sport as a player, captain, commentator, ambassador, consultant and more recently as Cricket South Africa’s (CSA) Director of Cricket (DoC). His understanding of the game will add tremendous strength to the League.

    Recognised for his leadership qualities and decisive, clear thinking, Smith will lead the League which, outside of CSA, has SuperSport as one of its major shareholders.

    Among his first orders of business will be to develop the brand and confirm the participating franchises for the cricket fest to take place annually in South Africa, the inaugural event of which is scheduled to take place in January and February 2023.

    Commenting on the role, Smith said, “I’m extremely honoured to be entrusted with leading this exciting new venture. I’m deeply committed to South African cricket and happy to serve the game as best I can. I’m excited by the opportunity to deliver the new league which I believe will be an extremely competitive product, one that can bring the much-needed investment into the game and provide new opportunities for players around the world and more importantly to our SA home grown talent.

    “The response from stakeholders has been very positive thus far and we’ve made great progress in the initial stages,” said Smith. “We’re determined to deliver a valuable, sustainable and appealing tournament for South African cricket.”

    Pholetsi Moseki, the chief executive of Cricket South Africa, welcomed Smith’s new role.

    “I worked closely with Graeme during his role as DoC and believe he is the perfect candidate to lead this new chapter of South African cricket,” Moseki said. “His expert understanding of the local and international cricketing environment will ensure the League delivers a thrilling product that will change the face of South African cricket for the better.

    “This new league promises to make a significant investment into both professional cricket and development in South Africa, along with a positive socio-economic and tourism injection into the country. We are excited by the positive strides we have made so far and remain on track to deliver a league to inspire and entertain cricket fans around SA and the world,” he concluded.

    The competition is expected to give impetus to the development plans of CSA and to elevate and sustain CSA’s holistic vision for the game in the country.

    It could effectively be a mini-IPL in South Africa as the Indian Premier League (IPL) franchises have swept the team auction of Cricket South Africa's upcoming Twenty20 league. The bidding closed on Wednesday (13 July) with 29 Expressions of Interest (EoIs) but it was the IPL investment that is believed to have dominated the franchise auction.

    Cricbuzz understands that Mukesh Ambani of Mumbai Indians, N Srinivasan of Chennai Super Kings, Parth Jindal of Delhi Capitals, the Marans of SunRisers Hyderabad, Sanjiv Goenka of Lucknow Super Giants and Manoj Badale of Rajasthan Royals have walked away with the available six franchises of the league, scheduled for early next year.

    Although CSA has been maintaining that the selection of the franchises will be announced only at the end of the month, Cricbuzz can confirm that the IPL team investors have been informed about their successful bids and have been asked for their choices of cities.

    Mumbai Indians are set to have their team in Cape Town. Chennai Super Kings, one of the most popular IPL franchises, are likely to be given the franchise based in Johannesburg while Jindal, the co-owner of the Delhi Capitals, will have his team based in Centurion in Pretoria. It will be called the Pretoria Capitals.

    MI and CSK placed the biggest financial bids, close to INR 250 crores. As the IPL model goes, each franchise will have to pay 10 per cent of the franchise fee for 10 years.

    Sanjiv Goenka, who last year bagged the Lucknow franchise of the IPL, is believed to be interested in the Durban franchise.

    Of the remaining two cities, SunRisers Hyderabad could have its team in Port Elizabeth while the Royals are expected to have their base in Paarl. Quite a few non-Indian investors have also placed bids but none of them, including the Kevin Pietersen-headed consortium, could apparently match the financial bids of the IPL owners.

    When contacted, a top CSA official said that the franchise selection process has not yet been completed but Cricbuzz has obtained information to the contrary from sources in four of the six franchises in the new set-up.

    The league, which will clash with another upcoming league in the UAE, is tentatively scheduled for January-February, 2023. There has been a signing match between the organisers of the two leagues and it is learnt that many English players, including limited-overs skipper Jos Buttler and Liam Livingstone - the star white-ball players from the country - are believed to be inclined to play in the CSA league. Moeen Ali, however, has agreed to play in the UAE league.

    Faf du Plessis, one of the biggest T20 stars who is now a free agent, will stay in South Africa. Dwayne Bravo too will be there, most probably with the CSK-owned team, but many other players from West Indies are going to the UAE.

    Do Indians follow these leagues? Also, does the viewership go up if a league is owned by an Indian?

    Emirates and CSA league is yet to start. CPL has a big time difference.

    I presume that the owners will leverage the brand. They can now do a good foreign tour using a team from one of these leagues as base and use the IPL team name as the brand.

    Wednesday, 19 July, Johannesburg – The six franchise owners for South Africa’s T20 League have been confirmed following a rigorous process over the past few months.

    The open bid process, managed by Deloitte Corporate Finance, attracted over 29 entities who expressed interest in owning a franchise worldwide. Over 10 venues were made available for interested bidders to own a franchise and all 10 of them received expressions of interest.

    The six successful bidders who will be part of this significant chapter of South African cricket are:




    All six successful bidders have extensive experience in operating franchises across multiple sports and deep cricketing expertise through their ownership in the world’s leading T20 tournament, the Indian Premier League.

    Commenting on the selection process, the Commissioner for the new league, Graeme Smith said:

    “We are thrilled to welcome our new franchise owners to the South African League taking place in January and February 2023. This is truly an exciting time for South African cricket; the overwhelming interest shows that the country remains valued in the global cricketing eco-system.

    “A robust bidding process was followed to select the final six owners, the decision was informed by a scorecard based on various criteria to ensure the utmost professionalism, independence, and objectivity to the process. I would like to thank Deloitte as our advisors for doing a thoroughly professional job in helping South African cricket find partners who add substantial value to our game.

    “The strong sports background of the respective owners and the global brands they manage ensures that South African cricket and the broader industry will benefit from their expertise and resources, as they bring stability and experience to the League.”

    Fans will have the opportunity to watch word class cricketers, catch a glimpse of the next generation and experience the action first-hand when the festival takes off early next year

    “We have already contracted a number of leading international players who will be announced shortly. Combined with our strong South African player base, fans and stakeholders can be assured that the new League will showcase exciting talent and skill,” Smith concluded.

    Queensland's new KFC T20 Max series has lured a pair of Indian Premier League players for its inaugural tournament, beginning next month in Brisbane.

    Left-arm pacemen Chetan Sakariya (Delhi Capitals) and Mukesh Choudhary (Chennai Super Kings) will spend time in Brisbane as part of an exchange with the renowned MRF Pace Foundation.

    The duo will test their wares in the T20 Max competition, which runs from August 18 – September 4, and also train at the National Cricket Centre while joining in with the Queensland Bulls' pre-season preparations.

    Sakariya, 24, is a particular coup for the tournament, having made his ODI and T20I debuts last year for India against Sri Lanka.

    He will play for the Sunshine Coast while Choudhary will play for Wynnum-Manly.

    Player and coaching exchanges between the MRF Pace Foundation and Cricket Australia have been in place for almost 20 years, with the two Indian players marking the resumption of the relationship that was paused due to COVID.

    The initial Australians who attended the first exchange in 1992 were Glenn McGrath and Paul Wilson, when the great Dennis Lillee was head coach. McGrath subsequently took over as head coach following the end of his illustrious bowling career.

    Elsewhere in the competition, a trio of Papua New Guinea internationals, fresh from making the semi-finals of the ICC World T20 qualifiers in Zimbabwe this month, will link with Sandgate-Redcliffe.

    Norman Vanua, Chad Soper and Charles Amini Jnr are all regulars for the Barramundis, who finished third at the World Cup qualifiers, with Soper taking 3-11 to help defeat the USA in their play-off.

    Amini, a third-generation PNG representative, is a leg-spinning allrounder, while Vanua and Soper are both right-arm pace bowlers.

    The influx of players into the KFC T20 Max also features more than a dozen current or recent KFC Big Bash League contracted players as well as regional and country representatives and other interstate recruits.

    Each Premier club can sign three interstate or international recruits, as well as regional players to complement their existing teams, with contracted Queensland Bulls and Brisbane Heat players available for selection.

    Matches will be played at Premier club grounds and under lights at the newly redeveloped Allan Border Field.

    The Heat will keep open two contract spots on its 2022-23 list to provide opportunities for players who impress to potentially join the BBL club.

    Among the recruits for the KFC T20 Max competition announced to date are current or recent BBL contracted players such as Jordan Silk, Nick Bertus (Sydney Sixers), Beau Webster, Nick Larkin, Clint Hinchliffe (Melbourne Stars), Cameron Boyce, Josh Lalor (Melbourne Renegades), Ben Cutting, Arjun Nair (Sydney Thunder), Liam Guthrie, Jake Lehmann, Nathan McSweeney (Brisbane Heat), Nick Hobson, Chris Sabburg (Perth Scorchers), Ryan Gibson and Spencer Johnson (Adelaide Strikers).

    Cricket South Africa is confident of facing a legal challenge aimed at halting the progress of its new T20 rival from at least one owner of the derelict Global T20 League (GLT20).

    Hermis Sports Ventures Limited, the owners of the Pretoria Mavericks, wrote to the CSA asking for a “reasonable opportunity” to apply for a franchise in the new tournament, or else they would consider applying to the courts for an objection to stop the Games from moving forward.

    At the same time, Hermis also sued the CSA for $515,627.91 in damages from the failed GLT20 despite having it re-deposited $250,000 with interest.

    CSA has already made agreements and announced the six owners of the new T20 League, all of whom are from IPL. However, Hermes claims that CSA “invited some selected parties to bid for the ownership of the teams”, and that bidding opportunities were not “widely available”.

    Hermis released the CSA with a notice of intent to take legal action on Wednesday and asked for a response by Friday. According to a media report, that CSA intends to defend any allegations made by Hermes. Sources close to the board believe the case is unfounded.

    Hermès’ claim is based on a letter former CSA CEO Thabang Morrow wrote to the eight GLT20 franchisees in August 2018. At the time, Morrow was explaining the board’s decision to abandon the idea of ​​private ownership of franchise teams and move the league at home to what became called the Mzansi Super League. League. He cited “commercial reasons” for the decision but said the CSA might explore the possibility of private owners in the future, at which point GLT20 owners could put themselves up again.

    “In such a case, we confirm that each of you, as previous owners, will be given an opportunity, on the basis of a right of first refusal, to acquire ownership (or partial ownership depending on the amount of team ownership available for private ownership) from your previous teams.” Needless to say, this right of first refusal is not unconditional but is subject to conditions such as the CSA and/or the incorporated Special Purpose Vehicle for League Management (“SPV”), as dictated by the financial model thereafter, purchase policy and other relevant considerations. Relevance. These terms will be reported at the time the form is adapted to allow private team ownership, if this is achieved.”

    While the Hermes communication acknowledging the old owners’ right to refuse was not unconditional, they allege that the CSA violated the previous agreement by not informing them of the new league or inviting them to bid for it. ESPNcricinfo is aware that CSA has contacted some parties, including representatives from IPL teams such as the Kolkata Knight Riders (who owned a team in GLT20 and now own a team in the Emirates T20 League, which will be played concurrently in January 2023), but has also received unfair bids. Required from different businessmen. This includes South African businessman and former player Terence Lazard and Osman Usman, who is part owner of the Mavericks franchise. In total, the CSA announced that it has received 29 expressions of interest and it is understood that IPL owners are outperforming their competitors remotely.

    Another complication of the Hermes Challenge is that the new league is not run by the CSA alone, but by a newly formed entity Africa Cricket Development (PTY) Limited (ACD). CSA is the majority shareholder in this company, with 50%, while broadcasting company Supersport owns 30% stake and former IPL COO Sundar Raman, the remaining 20%. Thus, any legal action against the new league would have to be a suit against the new company, not the CSA.

    With all teams owned by IPL owners, I think CSA is now completely in BCCI's pocket. If it already wasn't.

    Now their T20 competition will take priority over international fixtures. Of course the IPL will take priority over all things CSA.

    CSA order of priority - IPL, T20 competition, T20I's, further down the line, tests. If they have time some ODI's.

    Tell them that they are giving out fake news.

    Srilanka had higher per capita income, it meant nothing when the country went bankrupt. Latest IMF reports still put Bangladesh behind India in per capita income in nominal gdp.

    On topic BCB makes 19mn usd for 3 years, thats 6 mn plus a year.

    Thats not big by any stretch.

    Jos Buttler, Liam Livingstone, Moeen Ali and Jason Holder have signed up to play South Africa's new T20 league, which is to launch in January and is offering player salaries up to USD 300,000. The league, headed by former South Africa captain Graeme Smith, will be played by six franchises who will each have a purse of $2 million for player acquisition.

    Though dates have not been finalised, the league is likely to start on January 11 next year with the final on February 12. That schedule could change slightly, but it still means South Africa's T20 league will run almost concurrently with the UAE-based International League T20 (ILT20), which is due to take place between January 6 and February 12.

    The clash between the two leagues, which also overlap with Australia's BBL and Bangladesh's BPL, means the availability of T20 cricketers in January will be at an absolute premium, a demand for their services that cricket will never have seen before. Livingstone, for example, is also one of the headline names in the BBL's overseas draft and it seems more unlikely than ever that he will play the whole season in Australia.

    The biggest worry for the franchises in the CSA league and the ILT20, both dominated by IPL owners, was securing a strong roster of overseas players. The ILT20 has upped the ante by offering the very top players potentially up to USD 450,000 - which would make it the second-highest paying league in the world after the IPL.

    CSA is comforted by the fact that it has a wider pool of top-tier local South African talent, which will form the backbone of that league. The ILT20 is a more global tournament with each team having 12 overseas players out of 18. CSA's league will have 10 South African players in each 17-man squad and the remaining seven from overseas.

    South Africa's league will follow the IPL model in its composition of the playing XI: seven local players and a maximum of four overseas players. Unlike the South African national teams and domestic sides, the league will not place transformation targets on franchises.

    While franchises will form squads by buying players at an auction, they will also be able to directly pick from a set of names signed by CSA. It is understood that some, if not all, of these players have been guaranteed a minimum sum of $300,000. Whether or not that will be the highest salary cap for a player is not yet clear.

    The details of how franchises acquire players from this select group is not known, but those with IPL contracts are likely to play for corresponding franchises in the South African league. There is also a possibility of each franchise being allowed to acquire one marquee South Africa player directly, outside the auction.

    Franchises can also sign a player on their own if his name does not feature in the registered auction pool, subject to there being only one name signed up from that particular country.

    The league is co-owned by CSA, SuperSport and former IPL chief operating officer Sundar Raman who, along with Smith, was responsible for IPL franchises buying teams in this league. The owners of Mumbai Indians bought the Cape Town team; the Lucknow Super Giants owners got the Durban franchise; the Gqeberha [formerly Port Elizabeth] team went to the owners of Sunrisers Hyderabad; the owners of Rajasthan Royals bought the team based in Paarl; JSW Sports, the co-owners of Delhi Capitals, bought the Pretoria side; and Chennai Super Kings Cricket Limited picked up the Johannesburg franchise.

    It is believed that franchises have been guaranteed $1 million in revenues annually from the league. There has not been any official announcement yet from CSA's league on auction dates and other details including salary caps and wage slabs.

    If Pak players get picked, then yes.

    PCB gave NOC's to players participating in CPL as well where TKR and Barbados are owned by Indian companies.

    Wednesday, 10 August – The six franchises of the inaugural T20 League in South Africa will be able to sign players from a world-class pool made up of some of the best local and international cricketers.

    Over 30 marquee international players have already been signed by the League, with the numbers set to increase as players enter the auction taking place in the next few weeks. This is in addition to all contracted Proteas and domestic players who have committed to the League.

    The six franchises will have a squad of 17 players, and will be able to pre-sign up to five players made up of three international players, one Proteas player and one uncapped South African player prior to the auction.

    “This is an important milestone for the League,” League Commissioner, Graeme Smith commented. “Having world-class South African players playing with some of best cricketers around the world makes for some outstanding cricket. I’m mostly excited for the young and upcoming talent in our cricket pipeline. They will get to rub shoulders with some experienced and talented players which will no doubt inspire and help them to raise their own game.

    “The League’s priority is to help strengthen our domestic cricket structures while putting on an exciting and entertaining cricketing showpiece,” Smith continued. “Our player regulations have been thoughtfully drafted in consultation with the franchises and everyone is ready to get going. We’re looking forward to seeing how the teams match up and how the franchises will build their squads.”

    Players from across a host of countries have expressed their interest to be a part of the League and are currently being signed up for the 2023 season and beyond.

    “We are delighted with the interest from the player community and are onboarding players with the support from the cricket boards. I’m looking forward to welcoming players from all regions across the cricketing world,” Smith ended.

    Former South Africa captain Faf du Plessis has been roped in by the Johannesburg franchise owned by IPL giants Chennai Super Kings (CSK) as their marquee signing for the inaugural edition of the Cricket South Africa (CSA) T20 League, according to a report. Du Plessis, who played for the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the IPL last season, was part of the CSK from 2011 to 2021, except for 2016 and 2017 when the team was suspended. Wednesday was the last day for the direct acquisition of players for the six-team upcoming league.

    The inaugural edition of the CSA T20 League is scheduled to be played in January-February 2023 and all the six franchises in the tournament have been acquired by current IPL team owners.

    Apart from CSK owning the Johannesburg-based franchise, MI Cape Town is the sister franchise of Mumbai Indians and the teams from Durban, Gqeberha (formerly Port Elizabeth), Paarl and Pretoria are owned by Lucknow Super Giants, Sunrisers Hyderabad, Rajasthan Royals and Delhi Capitals respectively.

    The CSK-owned Johannesburg franchise is also believed to have roped in England all-rounder Mooen Ali as one of its marquee players, according to Cricbuzz.

    Ali, who represents CSK in the IPL, had also featured in the marquee players' list for the UAE League (ILT20).

    But, according to the Cricbuzz report, he is said to have picked the T20 tournament in South Africa over ILT20, which will also be held in January-February next year

    Reliance Industries-owned MI Cape Town, the brand new team in the Mumbai Indians family which will take part in the inaugural edition of Cricket South Africa' T20 League, on Thursday announced the signing of 5 players ahead of the start of the season.

    "The players will join the #OneFamily team and will adorn the iconic blue and gold colors that the fans have come to recognize from the MIfranchise. ‘MI Cape Town' includes 3 foreign players, 1 South Africa capped and 1 South Africa uncapped player as part of the squad," an official release stated.

    The players include big names such as Kagiso Rabada, Dewald Brevis, Rashid Khan, Sam Curran and Liam Livingstone.

    “I'm excited as we begin our journey in building “MI Cape Town”. With our direct player signings, we have taken the first step towards building the MI philosophy - having a strong core around which the team will be planned.

    Rumor has been that franchises have mentioned that they cant have Pakistani players as Indian fans might not like it as it can create complexities. Which is odd considering in CPL two of the franchises are owned by IPL owners and they both had Pakistani players.

    League official though has stated that availability of Pakistan players due to schedule constraints have a role in them not being part of it.

    Kieron Pollard, Nicholas Pooran, Trent Boult and Dwayne Bravo are some of the high-profile names to be signed by MI Emirates for the inaugural edition of UAE's International League T20. The squad will be based in Abu Dhabi, and includes a mix of current and past MI players. The players will adorn MI's iconic blue and gold amongst the others. The players have been signed as per the league guidelines and the local players from UAE will be added to the squad in the near future.

    "“I am delighted with our dynamic group of 14 players that will be part of our #Onefamily and represent ‘MI Emirates'. We are glad to have one of our key pillars, Kieron Pollard continue with MI Emirates. Joining us back are Dwayne Bravo, Trent Boult, and Nicholas Pooran," said Akash Ambani, Chairman of Reliance Jio in an official statement.

    "A very warm welcome to all players of MI Emirates. MI is known to strike a balance between experience and investing in young talent to unlock their true potential which will help us play the MI way. This is what fans expect from us and will drive the MI ethos forward," he added.

    Earlier this week, New Zealand Cricket confirmed that it has agreed to release pacer Trent Boult from his central contract so that he can spend more time with his family, while also making himself available for domestic leagues. The 33-year-old fast bowler had requested the release after several conversations with NZC. On Wednesday, the board finally agreed to the arrangements.

    "The move means Boult, who has taken 317 Test wickets, 169 at ODI level, and 62 in T20I cricket, will have a significantly reduced role with the BLACKCAPS during his final years in the game, while still being eligible for selection if and when available," stated an official release issued by NZC.

    Players signed by MI Emirates: Kieron Pollard (West Indies), Dwayne Bravo (West Indies), Nicholas Pooran (West Indies), Trent Boult (New Zealand), Andre Fletcher (West Indies), Imran Tahir (South Africa), Samit Patel (England), Will Smeed (England), Jordon Thompson (England), Najibullah Zadran (Afghanistan), Zahir Khan (Afghanistan), Fazalhaq Farooqui (Afghanistan), Bradley Wheal (Scotland), Bad de Leede (Netherlands)

    Money angle probably. If money paid is high and Pakistani players are direct beneficiaries of that, Indian public would not like that.

    All six teams in the Cricket South Africa's new T20 league have been bought by IPL owners and Graeme Smith, who was recently appointed the commissioner of the league, welcomed the investment, which he feels the country's cricket board "desperately needed." "It's certainly going to be an investment into our game that South African cricket desperately needed," Smith said.

    "The pressures on nations like New Zealand, West Indies, South Africa to stay financially sustainable to keep up with England, India, and the world game to stay competitive is hugely important.

    "I don't think world cricket can afford South Africa or any one of the top nations to start fading away." To have all their players available for the maiden edition of the league, Cricket South Africa (CSA) chose to forfeit a three-match ODI series in Australia.

    "For four weeks of an entire year, the priority will be the league. I feel that if we hadn't done this South African cricket could have probably lost eight to ten players to this UAE league," Smith said.

    "People also look at those three ODIs wrong. Yes, South Africa hasn't handled ODI cricket as well and it should never be in this position. But for South Africa to be in Australia out of their key part of the summer financially is a huge stress for them.

    "It's like asking England not to play during your summer. The commitment that South African cricket made to go for the three Test matches is good for the game. It's something that won't happen often."

    Cricket South Africa's new T20 tournament finally has a name in the form of SA20 and its commissioner, Graeme Smith, said player availability is the least of their problems.

    The league's draft will take place on 19 September to fill out the six teams with 17 players, 10 of which will be local and seven international.

    From a match-day perspective, the teams will follow the international standard of seven local and four foreign players format.

    The tournament is slated to start on 23 January, as soon as the Proteas players are back from their three-Test series against Australia.

    The start of the SA20 will coincide with the business end of Australia's established Big Bash League, but Smith said agreements are in place for individuals who signed for the BBL to leave and play in South Africa.

    "We have an agreement with the players that we've signed and the BBL has an agreement in place that allows players to take part in a portion of the Big Bash," Smith said.

    "They have a different structure this year, so the players in our league who have signed up will be there up until the early days of January so that they will be available.

    "They'll be released to come and play here, from where they'll be fully available for the South African league."

    The six teams based in Johannesburg, Pretoria, Durban, Gqeberha, Paarl, and Cape Town will have a purse of US$ 2 million (R34 million) for player acquisitions, some of which have been used.

    Smith said the acquiring of players hasn't been easy, but they're in the process of sorting out player registration for the tournament.

    "We've managed to attract quality players and a large part of our group will be South African players," Smith said.

    "We've got an extensive list of international players that we're sorting out for the auction. We're still finalising some of the auction details and we're sorting out the player registration because of the large number of players.

    "There has been an element of pre-signing that has been taking place and the teams have a purse of $2 million that already includes the pre-signed players."

    The SA20 is CSA's third attempt at a viable T20 tournament after the failures of the Mzansi Super League and the Global League T20.

    Smith hoped that this tournament can have a life of its own that makes it stand out as a brand.

    "The name is very simple, but this is something that we can own and bring to life," Smith said.

    "A lot of work has gone into it and we're very excited with what we've done and what we can create going forward.

    "We hope it's a brand that brings cricket together, along with new fans."

    Wednesday, 31 August: South Africa’s premier T20 League has been unveiled as the SA20, an Explosive, Exhilarating and Exciting competition set to change the face of South African cricket.

    The SA20 identity is founded on vibrant, bold, and energetic iconography, all the dynamic elements synonymous with T20 cricket. The XX - roman numerals for the number 20- represent T20 cricket’s dynamic wagon wheel, a key indicator of runs being scored, and bring to life the flair and thrill expected in the competition. The striking colours of cyan, navy and green are symbolic to the world of cricket - day, night and the 22 yards.

    League Commissioner, Graeme Smith, says the SA20 will be a competition for everyone.

    “Today is another significant day as we officially unveil the SA20,” Smith said. “We selected a name for its simplicity and something that can be uniquely ours as we enter this new and exciting phase of cricket in South Africa. Dropping the T in T20 cricket shows our intention to be different. We want to change the game for our players and for our fans, and most importantly, create a League that all South Africans can be a part of.”

    The SA20 has attracted some of T20 cricket’s global stars including Liam Livingstone, Jos Buttler, Jason Holder, Rashid Khan and Moeen Ali to add to the list of world-class contracted Proteas players.

    The next important milestone for the SA20 will be the player auction taking place on September 19th. The player registrations closed on Sunday evening with a positive show of interest from players around the world and from established and young South African talent.

    “The countdown to January 2023 gets more thrilling with each major milestone that we cross and today is another step towards that first ball being bowled. We hope fans will be able to relate to our brand as we work towards making the SA20 a world-class tournament South Africans can be proud of.”

    SA20 the platform for players to develop skills – Bavuma

    Friday, 2 September 2022: Proteas limited-overs captain, Temba Bavuma, believes the SA20 will provide a platform for South African players to share knowledge and skills with some of the best coaches and players in the world. The SA20 has attracted big ticket names like Stephen Fleming, Lance Klusener, Jos Buttler, Maheesh Theekshana, Faf du Plessis and Liam Livingstone to its roster, with more coaches and players to be unveiled at the auction taking place on September 19th.

    “I’m excited for the upcoming SA20,” Bavuma said. “It is going to be a massive opportunity for our local players to rub shoulders with the best T20 players around the world and to share knowledge with those players. The knock-on effects could also mean opportunities for players to be involved in IPL-owned teams and seeing more of our young talent within those IPL Leagues.

    “For the young players, the SA20 will become a platform for them to develop their skills,’ he explained. “We can see what the IPL has done for Indian cricket and their young guys, they come in and play with confidence and no fear. We expect to see that in five to 10 years’ time in our local game. It’s an opportunity to make a name for ourselves in T20 cricket and show people what we (South Africa) can do.”

    South Africa’s players will be up for a life-changing opportunity at the auction taking place at the Cape Town International Convention Centre, as the six Franchises bring out their $2million dollar purses to finalise their squads.

    “The auction will be massive,” Bavuma said. “As players, we will get to know where we will be playing our cricket. I live in Joburg so it would be nice to play here at home, ha only kidding. I’m not ruling out any of the teams, I will play for any team. A young player could be bought for a big price so that could be life-changing too.”

    The Test vice-captain has recovered from the injury which kept him out of the ongoing series against England and is looking forward to getting match ready ahead of the ICC T20 World Cup and summer of cricket.

    “I’m quite happy with where I am from a recovery point of view,” he said. “It has been a frustrating time, but I am where I am now. I am looking forward to getting out and being back.

    “My T20 game has been forced to evolve” he admitted. “The modern game of cricket is moving at a rapid rate and T20 cricket has influenced other formats. Personally, like a lot of players, I have had to adjust my game to keep up with the times. It has been exciting, always having a challenge and adapting your game to meet that challenge. The SA20 will be another opportunity to challenge myself and to add more to my game which will make me more effective.”

    The stakeholders don’t want any kind of controversy and hence they are not ready to welcome Pakistan players on board. Also, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is not ready to provide three NOCs to its players.

    “No, we are not considering Pakistani players. There are way too many obstacles to go for Pakistani players. First, it’s a hard negotiation with the board to get them on board and allow them NOC. Then, comes the backlash of it. I don’t think any fans in India will be happy with their playing for us,” a franchise official with teams in both UAE & South Africa leagues was quoted saying by InsideSport.

    “It’s an investment and there is a lot at stake in every business. No one would want to hurt the sentiments of the customers. In this case, Indian fans are the biggest customers for us. We have decided not to pursue any Pakistani talent. They have some of the best players in the world but it’s not in our best interest,” the franchise added.

    Ten Dolphins players snapped up in SA20 auction

    Durban – Following a successful auction for the upcoming SA20 competition, Hollywoodbets Dolphins players fared well with ten players from the union being snapped up by the various franchises for the tournament.

    Two players will call Hollywoodbets Kingsmead Stadium home for the competition with Prenelan Subrayen being picked by Durban’s Super Giants before the auction while Proteas star Keshav Maharaj was their other Dolphins pick.

    “We’re excited to have Durban’s Super Giants call Hollywoodbets Kingsmead Stadium home for the tournament,” CEO of KZN Cricket Heinrich Strydom said. “We hope that the Durban public come through and enjoy some high quality T20 cricket.

    “The team will have two of the longest-serving Dolphins players in their ranks in Keshav and Prenelan and along with former Dolphins player and coach Lance Klusener at the helm, they will have a strong KZN flavour.”

    The Sunrisers Eastern Cape will see the biggest contingent of Dolphins players with four players heading to Gqeberha for the competition. Ottniel Baartman was selected before the competition and he will be joined by Sarel Erwee, Marques Ackerman and Jon-Jon Smuts in the Eastern Cape.

    Two Dolphins stars will turn out for the Pretoria Capitals in the first edition of SA20 with Daryn Dupavillon and Eathan Bosch being snapped up by the Tshwane-based side on Monday.

    Dolphins wicket-keeper/batsman Grant Roelofsen will head to the Mother City in January as he was bought by MI Cape Town in the auction while Dolphins and Proteas batting star David Miller was one of the Paarl Royals’ pre-auction purchases.

    Miller will also captain the Royals’ side for the SA20 in a side that includes England’s T20 captain Jos Buttler.

    “We are really looking forward to seeing our Hollywoodbets Dolphins stars turn out for the various franchises for the upcoming SA20.

    “The tournament is going to be a big boost for cricket in the country and it will only benefit each player as they mix with, play and learn from some of the best in the domestic and international game.”

    SKY BLUES WELL REPRESENTED IN SA20 AUCTION

    Wednesday, 21 September 2022

    The inaugural SA20 auction was held in Cape Town on Monday, 19 September and saw a total of 13 Momentum Multiply Titans’ bought by the 6 T20 teams.

    Titans players sold in the auction, which went late into in Monday evening amassed a total value of R19 575 000, this excludes some of the big names which were presold before the auction.

    The success at the SA20 auction is testament to the quality of players that have come from the Titans Cricket pipeline and further gone on to make a name for themselves nationally and internationally.

    “It’s pleasing that our players have done well to get themselves a team in the SA20, the quality of the players and values they’ve gone for is the icing on the cake for us” Enthused Dr Jacques Faul, Titans Cricket CEO.

    The Titans have a good track record of producing some of the best South African cricketers over the years and the inclusion of 13 players in the SA20 is another marker of the Unions success.

    Along with players, Titans coaching staff will also be involved in the premier T20 competition. Head Coach Mandla Mashimbyi and Consultant Richard Das Neves have joined the Paarl Royals as fast bowling and spin bowling coach respectively.

    It’s the Titans very own Lungi Ngidi who was the first player sold in the auction, going for 3.4M in Set 1 followed by Tabraiz Shamsi, 4.3M in Set 2, both players being picked up by Paarl Royals.

    “I think one of the big things this competition will bring to South African cricket is the financial benefits for the players. It will also go a long way in exposing our domestic talent to an international market and also playing cricket at a higher level.” Dr Faul continued.

    The auction was not without drama, when a bidding war ensued late on for power hitter Donovan Ferreira.

    The Pretoria Capitals and Johannesburg Super Kings entered into a tussle for the right hander before the Pretoria Capitals weren’t allowed to continue due to the amount of funds left in their purse.

    In the end, Ferreira was picked up by the Johannesburg Super Kings for 5.5M.

    “I’ve got no doubt that the Sky Blues flag will be flown high in the SA20 in January, I’m looking forward to seeing all the action unfold.” Dr Faul concluded.

    Momentum Multiply Titans set to play in the SA20 League in January 2023:

    Aiden Markram (Sunrisers Eastern Cape), Corbin Bosch (Paarl Royals), Dewald Brevis (MI Cape Town), Quinton de Kock (Durban’s Super Giants), Theunis de Bruyn – R1M (Pretoria Capitals), Lungi Ngidi – R3.4M (Paarl Royals), Tabraiz Shamsi – R4.3M (Paarl Royals), Lizaad Williams – R325k (Joburg Super Kings), Donavon Ferreira – R5.5m (Joburg Super Kings), Aya Gqamane – R175k (Sunrisers Eastern Cape), Heinrich Klaasen – R4.5m (Durban’s Super Giants), Junior Dala – R175k (Durban’s Super Giants), Simon Harmer – R200k (Durban’s Super Giants)
