Cash Prize for Winner of SA20 League: The SA20 league’s inaugural season will have the largest prize pool in South African franchise cricket history, a total sum of 70 million (Roughly Rs 33.5 crore).

With a record sum of money up for grabs this summer. SA20 is poised to break barriers in every element of South African cricket.

The R70 million overall prize pool, which is the largest in South African franchise cricket history. Highlights SA20‘s long-term dedication to supporting South African cricket and its players.

The SA20 is expected to be an intense competition that combines sport and entertainment. On a scale that hasn’t been seen in the South African sporting scene. It is expected to draw a wider range of South Africa’s varied society in addition to cricket enthusiasts.

Structure of the SA20 league!

The league will start on January 10 and end on February 11 with games being played at the Wanderers in Johannesburg. The franchise-based tournament will begin with a matchup between MI Cape Town and Paarl Royals at Newlands in Cape Town. In just over a month, 33 games including two round-robin leagues. Two semifinals and the championship match will be contested around South Africa.

Why SA20 is different to other leagues around the world?

Two semi-finals and the final will be the format instead of a regular playoff structure like the one followed in the IPL. The agenda of the league is to help the youngsters garner experience playing alongside high-profile players and help improve the standard of cricket on the national side. 

What’s Going to Happen in the SA20?

From January 10 at Newlands in Cape Town until the opening final on February 11 at the Wanderers in Johannesburg. Six teams, all supported by Indian Premier League franchises, are scheduled to compete against one another. We can expect action-packed entertainment from the teams.
