JOHANNESBURG – Cricket South Africa have set aside the disappointment of the national team’s poor performances at the World Cup by forging ahead with preparations for the next Mzansi Super League.
Cricket SA opened the registration period for players wanting to avail themselves for the tournament yesterday. The closing date is July 15.
Although no official dates for the second edition of the T20 competition have been confirmed, Cricket SA said in a statement that players registering for the tournament needed to be available between November 1 and December 16, when the final is due to be played.
Once again, the tournament will comprise six teams made up of 16-player squads, four of whom can be overseas or foreign-based players.
South African players with Kolpak contracts will also be allowed to register, but for the purposes of the tournament, they will be regarded as ‘overseas’ players.
