Also, the auctioneer would be Richard Madley, who is a veteran and has run IPL auctions in the past. There is huge Indian interest in the league.
In this league, a total of 33 matches will be played. All teams will play each other twice – on a home and away basis – with two semi-finals and the final to follow. However, the full schedule has yet to be released by the CSA.
“It’s exciting to have the first SA20 auction, I can’t wait to watch and hope to be chosen by a team,” said left arm bowler Tymal Mills.
“Auctions are always something I look forward to; the anticipation and nerves of waiting to go on a team and not knowing where you’re going to go. I’ve never played in South Africa professionally before and anyway, I’d love to go there in January to experience the SA20,” added Mills, who has played 13 T20Is for England and a total of 172 T20 matches.
