The Mzansi Super League (MSL) is South Africa’s top Twenty20 (T20) cricket competition. It is made up of six franchise teams from various South African cities. The tournament’s first edition took place from November 16 to December 16, 2018. Cricket South Africa (CSA) established the league in 2018. The South African Broadcasting Corporation was hired by the CSA to broadcast all MSL matches in South Africa and Global Sports Commerce (GSC) was named the exclusive worldwide commercial and broadcast partner.

The Mzansi Super League (MSL) Twenty20 (T20) franchise cricket event in South Africa will be held for the third time in 2021. It was originally slated for November 2020, but owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, it was postponed until 2021. This season, two new teams have been announced to compete.

The game is played in a double round-robin and knockout format. Each team will play every other team twice, once at home and once away. The top of the points table will advance directly to the final at the end of the league stage, while the second and third-placed teams will face in an eliminator, with the victor advancing to the final as the second team.

“Mzansi” is an isiXhosa word, the Bantu language of the Xhosa, one of the official languages of South Africa, that literally means “south,” but in slang it refers to the country of South Africa, suggesting something unique and indigenous. The local flavour of the league has been a key part of CSA’s rebranding following last season’s failure, but it hasn’t extended to the teams, who have all been given more generic names such as, 

  • Jozi Stars
  • Tshwane Spartans
  • Durban Heat
  • Cape Town Blitz
  • Paarl Rocks
  • Nelson Mandela Bay Giants

There’s an entire XI of retired, remarkable and Kolpak players to watch at this competition, including AB de Villiers, Dale Steyn, Morne Morkel, Imran Tahir, JP Duminy, Kyle Abbott, Duanne Olivier, Hardus Viljoen, Simon Harmer, Dane Vilas, and Heino Kuhn. Even while the depth of the domestic structure is being questioned, it may not be the best moment to look at the ones who got away, it’s still a reminder of the native potential South Africa has.

The Mzansi Super League is a significant step forward in South Africa’s cricket development. They are latecomers to the T20 league, but they appear to be succeeding on their second try, which means that cricket will reach a wider South African public than it has before. The MSL could break new ground in terms of the South African cricket-watching population, with SABC (South African Broadcasting Corporation) claiming daily viewership estimates of 28 million on their TV channels and a 72 percent stake in the radio airways in South Africa. Cricket’s audience was mostly middle-class and virtually entirely white twenty years ago. Much has happened since then, but the future looks even more inclusive and varied if the MSL survives and thrives.
