A boost for women's cricket as CSA launches Women's Super League

The league will be a strength versus strength domestic competition, designed to raise the standard of South African domestic cricket and give provincial players the chance to measure their skills against the established Proteas, most of whom will be taking part.

CAPE TOWN - Women’s cricket received a significant boost when Cricket South Africa (CSA) launched the second edition of the Women’s Super League in Cape Town on Friday.

The league will be a strength versus strength domestic competition, designed to raise the standard of South African domestic cricket and give provincial players the chance to measure their skills against the established Proteas, most of whom will be taking part.

The competition will be played in the T20 format, with all matches being centralised at the iconic Newlands ground with two matches each being played on Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

The winners will be the team to come out on top after a full round of league play.

"With virtually all our Proteas in the field, apart from a couple of unfortunately injured players, we have a wonderful opportunity to measure emerging talent from within our domestic ranks against our established stars and this will achieve our dual objective of making sure that we are represented by the very best players at our disposal at the Women’s T20 World Cup and that our domestic game achieves growth and strength," said CSA chief commercial officer Kugandrie Govender.
