For the forthcoming T20 competition that Cricket South Africa (CSA) will be hosting in January of next year, more than 25 players have signed up. West Indies and Sri Lanka are both anticipated to send about ten players to the brand-new T20 competition. Nearly 12 players from England are also anticipated to join the team, in addition to players from West Indies and Sri Lanka.
The competition will include a number of well-known English cricketers, including Jos Buttler, Liam Livingstone, Eoin Morgan, Jason Roy, Sam Curran, Adil Rashid, and Tymal Mills. Jason Holder, Alzarri Joseph, Obed McCoy, Dushmantha Chameera, Maheesh Theekshana, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, and Harry Tector are a few notable players who have chosen to take part in the competition.
In order to ensure the "long-term survival of the game" in the nation, the board opted to implement the franchise-based league, according to CSA. In order to make room for the T20 league, the top board will no longer schedule any international cricket matches in South Africa immediately following the New Year.
