SA20: Squads of all the team after the AuctionSeptember 20, 2022 | Rahul Shriwastav
Cricket South Africa's (CSA) newly formed SA20 league will hold its maiden edition in six South African cities in January-February 2023. The event, which is the latest and most ambitious attempt by the CSA to develop its successful T20 league, is subsidized by IPL's billion-dollar business giants.
All six teams are owned by IPL franchise owners and are based in various cricketing centres around the rainbow coalition.
Before the convoy arrives on the field, these six teams engaged in an equally feverish bidding war in Cape Town on Sept 19, with the tournament auction offering them the chance to finalize their various squads. The auction was overseen by CSA, and each SA20 franchise received an R34 million-rand purse.
Teams were limited to five pre-auction signings for the league's debut season, despite which 533 players were auctioned off during the SA20 auction in Cape Town. Teams had to fill 17-man squads for the competition, with the league allowing a maximum of seven international players.
