Johannesburg Super Kings, the South African national SA20 T20 League franchise, unveiled their logo on Thursday. The franchise is owned by Chennai Super Kings Sports Limited, the owners of the Indian Premier League (IPL) Chennai Super Kings franchise. “Wherever we go! Say Yellove to the Joburg Super Kings! @faf1307 #WhistlesForJoburg,” the franchise account tweeted. The logo resembles the CSK logo and features the lion and crown that have become a major part of the franchise’s cricketing culture over the years.
Cricket South Africa (CSA) on Wednesday unveiled the new name of its domestic T20I league as ‘SA20’.
The SA20 identity is founded on vibrant, bold and energetic iconography, all dynamic elements synonymous with T20 cricket. The XX – Roman numerals for the number 20 – represent the dynamic chariot wheel of T20 cricket, a key indicator of runs scored, and bring to life the flair and thrill expected in competition. The striking colors of cyan, navy and green are symbolic of the world of cricket – day, night and 22 yards.
Earlier in August, current and former CSK stars like Faf Du Plessis (South Africa), Moeen Ali (England) and Maheesh Theekshana (Sri Lanka), West Indies bowler Romario Shepherd and South African player Gerald Coetzee are revealed to be the first five signatories. .
Earlier in April, Cricket South Africa (CSA) and SuperSport TV announced the formation of a t20 competition featuring six private franchises from January 2023.
In July, Cricket South Africa (CSA) announced that former captain Graeme Smith had been appointed commissioner of South Africa’s new T20 league.
The next big step for SA20 will be the Player Auction which will take place on September 19th. Player registrations closed on Sunday evening with positive interest from players around the world and established and young South African talent.
All six franchises are eligible to sign directly from a list of 30 marquee players that CSA recently finalized. They are allowed to have a squad of 17 players. They will choose the remaining twelve players at auction.
