JOHANNESBURG – The Mzansi Super League (MSL 2.0) on Wednesday announced a glittering line-up of marquee star players, both South African and international, for the second edition of the tournament to be held in November and December.
These include the master of global batting entertainment, AB de Villiers, who will turn out for the Tshwane Spartans; ‘Universe Boss’ Chris Gayle, who will play for the defending champions Jozi Stars; and one of the leading lights of England’s successful Cricket World Cup campaign, Jason Roy, who will don the colours of the Nelson Mandela Bay Giants.
