In recent news for South Africa Cricket, the board has decided to partner up with broadcaster SuperSport.

Both have signed up a deal for the inauguration of a new T20 tournament in South Africa to start from January next year.

The league is to feature 6 teams, all owned by private companies.

CSA has not named the tournament so far but will do so in the coming months.

As per the news, the first edition of the tournament will start right this year after South Africa completes their scheduled tour of Australia.

The league will have a total of 33 games that will feature double round-robins and then the playoffs.

The playoffs will have three teams competing for the title.

This is Cricket South Africa’s third attempt to launch a T20 tournament in their country.

Cricket South Africa has already tried to start two T20 leagues in their country in the past.

Global T20 League was the first followed by Mzansi Super League.

With this third venture, CSA hopes to bring some good fortune to South African cricket.

CSA CEO Pholetsi Moseki gave the good news in which he stated that a lot of local and international investors have shown interest in purchasing the six teams.

Even Marc Jury, SuperSport CEO was delighted in partnering up with CSA for this new venture.
