In the South Africa T20 Fantasy League 2023 tournament, six teams will compete against each. These six teams include MI Cape Town, Paarl Royal, Pretoria Capitals, Sunrisers Eastern Cape, Durban Super Giants, and Johannesburg Super Kings.
Graeme Smith, the honorable commissioner of the tournament, informed that this gripping championship will be played in a Double Round Robin format where each team will play ten matches with points scored for each win or draw. The table topper from each team will automatically advance to the finals whereas the teams coming second and third will compete amongst themselves to secure their place in the finals.
This thrilling tournament is intended to provide the younger generation of upcoming players with an opportunity to experience exposure at international levels and hone their skills while playing with the veterans of the game.
The auction for this tournament began in September and all six teams confirmed their squads over here. The player who emerged as the most expensive one was the young batting sensation, Tristan Stubbs. He was acquired for an astounding 9.2 Million Rand.
