Schedule of inaugural T20 Global League announced


T20 Global League full schedule

Cricket South Africa (CSA) has announced the schedule of its inaugural T20 Global League, with five venues hosting opening weekend matches which will see all eight franchises in action.

The league starts with Cape Town Knight Riders taking on Pretoria Mavericks at Newlands on Friday, November 3. It will be followed by two double-headers on Saturday and Sunday. There will be a doubleheader every weekend, as well as several during the week as the league will hold 57 matches in the space of 44 action-packed days.

There are three rest/travel days, similar to the famous Tour de France cycle race schedule, to give squads some respite in a tournament that is going to test the endurance of all teams.

To add to the excitement, there is a one-off final between the top two finishers on the log and there will be no opportunity for the teams to get in through the back door of an eliminator or qualifier.

The final match of the league will be played on December 16 in Johannesburg.

Teams participating in the tournament:

Benoni Zalmi, Bloem City Blazers, Cape Town Knight Riders, Joburg Giants, Nelson Mandela Bay Stars, Durban Qalandars, Pretoria Mavericks and Stellenbosch Monarchs.
