The action at the Mzansi Super League T20 Draft, which will be used as a way to select the Mzansi Super League squads by each of the six sides. The Draft will see teams being asked to pick one domestic and one overseas marquee player before proceeding with the other picks to make up 17-man squads.
What was the Global League T20?
So far, the list of players who are expected to play isn’t quite known but one can expect cricketers from all over the world to make up the Global League T20 squads. More than 400 players have shown interest in playing in the league, including Australian players who have run into issues with their cricket board.
It’s also reasonable to assume that Indian cricketers might not feature in the GDL T20 much like they have been absent from the other T20 leagues that are played around the world.
The Global League T20 was conceptualised by the Cricket South Africa after they saw the loss of many of their players to the UK to the Kolpak Deal. What now needs to be seen is whether this new tournament will allow players to be retained by the Cricket South Africa and a lot will depend on the financials associated with it.
There had earlier been news that the Chennai Super Kings had showed interest in picking up a GDL T20 team but that seems to have come to nothing. However, there has been interest from other companies from the sub-continent.
