 T20 global league 2017

T20 global league is a 20-20 tournament by South Africa to be held in South Africa ( obviously !). this league is starting on 3rd November 2017 featuring 8 teams owned by private franchises, this tournament will end on 16th December. Let’s dig dipper into the topic! The 8 teams of the tournament will feature 8 cities of South Africa – Johannesburg, Centurion, Benoni, Bloemfontein, Durban, Ppaari, cape town, Port Elizabeth. Each squad may include maximum 5 international players. This tournament is very similar to the well known Indian Premier league (IPL) of India.


The first fixture of this tournament is cape town knight riders vs Pretoria Mavericks and the match will be held in Cape Town. The glorious finale of this amazing tournament will be held in Johannesburg.

This league will boast international superstars like Chris Gayle, Lasith Malinga, Dwayne Bravo, Brendon McCullum and it will also fixture south African superstars like AB de Villiers, Quinton de Kock, Hasim Amla and much more.

An interesting question can come to your mind after seeing the name “cape town knight riders” similar to Kolkata Knight riders right? you are going right! the owner of Kolkata Knight Riders in IPL and Trinbago Knight Riders in the Caribbean Premier League Bollywood superstar Shahrukhukh Khan is also the owner of this cape town knight riders!

“There is literally going to be the non-stop action of the highest international quality from the League opener on November 3 right through to the final on December 16?” – said T20 Global League Tournament Director Russell Adams.
