Local and international players gear up for SA20 auction
Excitement and anticipation for the inaugural SA20 Auction is heating up as South African and international players look ahead to the historical event. 316 players from 14 different countries will go under the hammer at the Cape Town International Convention Centre on Monday.
The six franchise teams have a R34 million rand salary budget to complete their squads of 17, and will be going head to head to bid for local and international T20 talent on their multi-million dollar shopping spree.
The much-anticipated SA20 blasts off with an exciting Western Cape derby between MI Cape Town and Paarl Royals at Newlands Cricket Ground on Tuesday, 10 January. The full match schedule of 33 matches to be played at six venues across the country was announced today, with only two months to go until the start of South Africa’s premier T20 League.
The opening game, along with the remaining 32 matches, will all be broadcast exclusively live on SuperSport in Sub-Saharan Africa and Viacom18 Sports to India’s cricket-loving and passionate fanbase.

Introducing the team representing the City of Gold - Joburg Super Kings
The Wanderers, also known as the “Bullring”, has a reputation as one of the fastest pitches in the world. This works perfectly in favour of Du Plessis’, whose love for tall strapping fast bowlers is world renowned.
The Super Kings squad certainly reflects this with South African youngsters Gerald Coetzee and Nandre Burger, West Indian Alzarri Joseph and England’s George Garton set to bring the heat.
