Almost all the big players of South Africa are seen on the field in the SA20 League, which is being played on the lines of IPL. Be it the first season or the current season, the league has created a stir among the cricket fans. The enthusiasm for cricket can be felt in the air in South Africa. The SA20 League has rejuvenated young cricketers, giving them an opportunity to not only hone their skills but also earn a little money.

The league achieved success

The Indian Premier League (IPL) has been instrumental in inspiring other countries to adopt a similar approach such as planning and starting their own T20 leagues. The South African league was designed to thrill cricket fans both locally and around the world and attract new audiences of all ages and the 4-week debut season did just that. Speaking exclusively to IANS, former South Africa captain and SA20 League commissioner Graeme Smith shared his views on the ongoing tournament.

What did Graeme Smith say?

Graeme Smith said during this time, “Our aim when starting the SA20 League was to bring positivity to South African cricket and provide a platform for emerging talent to showcase their skills at the world level. We wanted the league to be a mix of sport and entertainment. The success of the SA20 has exceeded all expectations with packed stadiums at all six venues, often reaching close to capacity.

The demand for this league has increased at the world level, which has attracted fans from all over the world. There has been a significant increase in engagement and viewership, especially from India. He also said that our focus is on strengthening this relationship to establish SA20 as the biggest league outside India.
