The Mumbai Indians owners bought the Cape Town franchise, Lucknow Super Giants owners bought the Durban franchise, and Chennai Super Kings owners bought the Johannesburg franchise.

Besides these, Sunrisers Hyderabad owners bought the Gqeberha franchise, Rajasthan Royals owners bought the Paarl franchise, and Delhi Capitals owners bought the Pretoria franchise. In this way, it would not be wrong to say that the SA20 League will approach the excitement of the Indian Premier League. Many people are already counting the days for the South African cricket league, where competition and excitement will always be at its peak. In this new CSA T20 league, each team can have a total of 17 players, with a maximum of 7 overseas players. In the opening season of SA20, each team will play against the other twice (home and away). A total of 33 matches are planned in the tournament, including two semi-finals and a final.

SA20 Broadcast Channels

SA20 League as a live broadcast seems to have some problems for now. The fact that an agreement has not yet been reached in the broadcast tender raises a question mark for viewers and fans. You will be able to log in to the Rajabets TV site, which is the platform of Rajabets and where you can watch all matches for free, and you will be able to watch it completely without freezing and in high quality. The price quoted by the Indian broadcasters seems to be far from the price CSA is asking. CSA; Held meetings and talked with platforms such as Sony, Zee, Viacom, and Amazon, but none of them were positive. The SA20 League auction was broadcast in India by Reliance-backed Viacom 18’s Sport18, Voot and JioTV.
