South Africa Launches ‘Global’ T20 League

Cricket South Africa announced plans for a Twenty 20 league which it hopes will attract major international investment and big-name players.

Eight franchises will be sold with the tournament being played in late 2017.

Plans for the league were revealed to International Cricket Council member countries during ICC meetings in Dubai.

The T20 Global League appears to be based on the successful Indian Premier League and Australia’s Big Bash League.
