IPL franchise owners clean swept the purchase of Cricket South Africa T20 League's new franchises.
The owners of the Indian Premier League (IPL) franchises continue to expand their business in the world of T20 leagues. The IPL franchise owners clean swept the purchase of the new franchises which are going to take part in Cricket South Africa’s new T20 league which will begin from January 2023.
Mumbai Indians, Chennai Super Kings, Lucknow Super Giants, Sunrisers Hyderabad, Rajasthan Royals and Delhi Capitals are among the IPL franchises who have bought a new team in the new South African T20 League. It should also be noted that South Africa has opted out of the Australia ODI tour earlier to incorporate the inaugural season of their T20 league.
“We are thrilled to welcome our new franchise owners to the South African League taking place in January and February 2023. This is truly an exciting time for South African cricket; the overwhelming interest shows that the country remains valued in the global cricketing eco-system,” Greame Smith, who was recently appointed the head of the league, said.
“The strong sports background of the respective owners and the global brands they manage ensures that South African cricket and the broader industry will benefit from their expertise and resources, as they bring stability and experience to the League,” Smith added.
