The second season of the South African domestic T20 competition, Betway SA20 has already begun, with all teams having played at least one game.
Six teams – Durban’s Super Giants, Joburg Super Kings, Paarl Royals, MI Cape Town, Pretoria Capitals and the defending champions Sunrisers Eastern Cape – are competing in the group stage of the league, which is hosted by Cricket South Africa (CSA).
Each team will play ten games before the playoffs and the final will be conducted on February 10, 2024. Notably, this season’s playoffs will consist of Qualifier 1, Eliminator, Qualifier 2, and Final, as opposed to the previous structure of two semi-finals and a final.
Several well-known players participate in the league and teams associated with the Indian Premier League (IPL) add to the league’s appeal among spectators and fans worldwide. Hence, considering the volume of eyeballs the competition will receive, it has rightfully gathered sponsorship ties with many businesses.
