There will be no dearth of T20 cricket in 2019 as South Africa's premier domestic T20 tournament is back. The CSA T20 Challenge will begin on 5th April and will go on for an entire month.
A total of six teams will battle it out to lift the coveted trophy. The tournament has been structured in a double round-robin format, which will be followed by two high-voltage semi-finals and the final.
While a majority of the fans are occupied by all the action taking place in the IPL, the CSA T20 will look to make its mark as well. Veteran Proteas batsman Hashim Amla will be seen in action, while JP Duminy will miss the initial part of the tournament as he is still rehabilitating a shoulder injury.
