After announcing a stellar line up of franchise owners, the SAT20 league today opened its registration process to receive interest from South African and overseas players to participate in the new competition.
The tournament, scheduled for January and February of each year, is accepting registrations from players for the inaugural season scheduled in the window from 4 January until 10 February 2023.
An overseas player is defined as a player who holds only a non-South African passport and who is not eligible, under ICC regulations, to play for South Africa. A South African player is one who is eligible and available to play for South Africa. The latter may include those players currently contracted to play either at national or provincial level, whether in South Africa or abroad.
Some franchises have already announced their pre-auction signings featuring some of the best players from across the world over the past week. As they look to build their roster, the League will facilitate this through a structured and transparent open auction process.
The auction will feature some of the top SA and overseas players including 2019 World Cup-winning Captain, Eoin Morgan.
South African players
Interested South African players can register through the South African Cricketers Association (SACA) in accordance with the process agreed with SACA.
Overseas players will need to register through the CSA website (www.cricket.co.za) via the relevant SA T20 League registration link on the site.
The closing date for players to register is 28 August 2022 at 5pm SAST and the auction will take place on a date to be announced soon.
