Cricket South Africa’s T20 league has been given the green light for a November launch.
The member’s council of Cricket South Africa (CSA) voted unanimously in favour of launching the new T20 League at a special meeting in Johannesburg on Saturday.
The commercial and related detail is currently being finalised and will be released shortly along with the hosting venues and fixtures. As announced previously, the league will be contested by six teams, playing a total of 30 home and away matches followed by one eliminator and the grand final.
The tournament will run from 9 November to 16 December.
‘Chief executive Thabang Moroe and his management team have come with a commercial model that is both financially viable and offers promise for an exciting and long-term future that meets all the conditions laid down by the CSA board of directors,’ commented CSA president and chairman of the board, Chris Nenzani.
‘The board had no hesitation in recommending this model to the member’s council,’ he concluded.
