CSK Cricket Limited owns a franchise in Cricket South Africa T20 League


Chennai Super Kings Cricket Limited (CSKCL), which owns

four-time IPL champions Chennai Super Kings, has acquired a franchise in Cricket

South Africa’s new T20 League which is set to begin from January 2023.

Of the six franchises that were up for grabs in the T20 League, CSKCL successfully

bid for the franchise based out of Johannesburg.

The Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg, known as the Bullring, will be the home

ground of the franchise. The Wanderers has a rich cricketing history having hosted

numerous high-profile events and contests including the 2007 T20 World Cup final,

which saw India lift their maiden T20 World title under the charismatic leadership of

MS Dhoni, a release from CSKCL said here today.

CSK were one of the semifinalists in the 2009 IPL held in South Africa and emerged

champions in the 2010 Champions League Twenty20 defeating the Warriors at the

Wanderers, Johannesburg in the final.

“We have been evaluating new opportunities across the globe over the past few years.

We felt this T20 league in South Africa will be highly competitive and it is a great

opportunity for us to give back to the sport. It would also help us to spot new talent.

“CSK received tremendous support and encouragement from fans during the IPL and

Champions League T20 tournaments which were held in South Africa. We are confident

that our superfans from all over the world will support us in this new journey and spread

Yellove,” CSK CEO K.S. Viswanathan said.
