Cricket South Africa (CSA) officially unveiled the Mzansi Super League (MSL), the much anticipated T20 League that is set to be the sport and entertainment spectacle of the South African summer – the feast of cricket and entertainment.
The inaugural event will take place from 16 November to 16 December 2018, and is set to feature some of the world’s top T20 talent.
With six spanking new city teams playing across six different venues around the country and with matches set to be broadcast exclusively live by the SABC on its television and radio platforms, the MSL T20 is set to thrill new and established cricket fans alike as it extends its reach to every community and every corner of the country.
This is a landmark moment for cricket in South Africa”, commented the Chief Executive of CSA, Thabang Moroe. “For the first time South Africa’s premier public broadcaster (referring to the SABC) will have exclusive rights to a major cricket event and this is very much in line with CSA’s vision of making cricket a truly national sport of excellence that is accessible to all.”
SABC Chief Operations Officer Chris Maroleng added a ringing endorsement: “We are proud to be a part of this venture as we continue giving fresh and new sporting content in line with our overall objective to be the broadcaster of choice for all audiences.
The T20 Cricket League will be played between the months of November and December this year and will be live on SABC 3 and Radio 2000. Umhlobo Wenene FM will also broadcast some of the matches live.
