Cricket South Africa announces new T20 league

In what feels like a lunge forward, Cricket South Africa (CSA) declared that it will organize a Twenty20 competition not long from now including the nation's best players and universal stars.

Meanwhile, South African TV organization SuperSport will be accomplices in an arrangement which CSA acting CEO Thabang Moroe said would be the greatest in the historical backdrop of South African local cricket.

A CSA proclamation gave no insights about the organization of the competition, which will be played in November and December. Be that as it may, it appears as though this project won’t be as audacious as the Global T20 League which was planned for last year but never really took place.

The Global T20 League was to be a city-based franchise competition, with foreign proprietors of seven of the eight teams.

However, it failed to work out, prompting the departure of then CSA CEO Haroon Lorgat on the grounds that no TV bargain and no major sponsors were set up.

Albeit not much was uncovered regarding the details of the other eight teams, it appears to be improbable that there will be private ownership by the franchises.

Moroe said the proprietors who had agreed to be a part of the tournament had been refunded their deposits. Two owners, however, denied that they have been refunded.  

The Global T20 League cost CSA a projected 180 million rand ($13.7m, 11.7m euros approx.), including remuneration pay-outs to 144 players who had been signed for the league.
