Mzansi Super League – CSA’s new T20 league

Mzansi Super League 2018 ScheduleAfter months of discussions and postponement, the Cricket South Africa has decided the first ever edition of the new South African T20 League – which was supposed to be called the Global T20 League before it was scrapped – will have six teams instead of eight. This new South African T20 tournament named Mzansi Super League (MSL T20) will be played from November 16 to December 16, 2018.

Known as the Global League T20 last year, it was cancelled after being unable to garner the support of a TV broadcaster and ended up costing the board a lot of money. The South African cricket board has now done everything possible to get a new tournament going. And one of the reasons why the tournament is called Mzansi is because the board wanted it sound very South African in nature.

The main player draft was held on Wednesday, October 17 in South Africa. The Mzansi Super League full squad lists and MSLT20 schedule is placed below.

How many matches will be played in this tournament?

According to the expected format, all these six teams will play off against each other twice in a round-robin format which will be followed by two playoffs to make it 32 matches..

The format will be similar to the Ram Slam T20 or the CSA T20 Challenge, but will only be played at the big grounds in the country including Wanderers in Johannesburg and Kingsmead in Durban.

Mzansi Super League Broadcast TV Channels & Live Stream

The board have signed up with SABC as the official broadcaster. SABC will release information on how this new tournament in SA can be watched on TV and streamed online soon.

The South African cricket board will own the majority share in the competition. They will also produce the tournament and sell it to TV channels around the world.

What’s interesting to note is that this new South African T20 Mzansi Super League will be played between November 16 and December 16, thereby coinciding with the T10 Cricket League. As a result players who have already been selected in the T10 League squads, might have difficulties in pulling out of that contract. South African players who will be featuring in the T10 League include the likes of Rilee Rossouw, Colin Ingram, Marchant de Lange, Cameron Delport, Morne Morkel, Hardus Viljoen and Roelof van der Merwe. Internationals like Chris Gayle, Eoin Morgan, Kieron Pollard, Jason Roy, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Darren Sammy and Andre Russell are all going to be featuring in the T10 league.

Some of the South African cricketers will also be absent as they feature in a ODI series against Australia which also clashes with some of the aforementioned dates.

More information on the MSL T20 schedule, tickets, live streaming and TV options will be revealed soon.
