Cape Town Blitz is a cricket franchise team founded in 2018. It is going to participate in South Africa's franchise league called the Mzansi Super League T20 cricket tournament.

Cape Town Blitz is based at the Newlands Cricket Ground, Cape Town. The team will be lead by Farhaan Behardien into the inaugural edition of MSL.

Players to watch

Cape Town Blitz has a solid squad with all the elements of a balanced team. All eyes would be on the Proteas wicket-keeper batsman Quinton de Kock. Expectations from de Kock would be high and his performances are going to be crucial, not only for the Blitz but for himself as well, with the 2019 World Cup in sight. Although British cricketer Dawid Malan is a new name to the world of cricket but you just cannot deny his experience and versatility.

The Trump Card

The key player in Blitz's 2018 MSL campaign is going to be none other than the Proteas pacer Dale Steyn. His vicious inswings prove to be as lethal as his outswings. Especially in Proteas conditions Dale Steyn is going to be extremely dangerous and difficult to play for the batsman.
