Rajasthan Royals & England opener – Jos Buttler & explosive batter Liam Livingstone are among the 11 England players who have signed for the upcoming inaugural edition of the CSA T20 League. Both Buttler & Livingstone are in top salary bracket with $500,00 salary while Moeen Ali is next with $400,00.
There are 10 players from Sri Lanka cricket team who have signed for the CSA T20 league. Recently CSA have announced that they have signed up 30 ‘marquee’ international players. The numbers are set to increase as players enter the auction taking place in the next few weeks.
As expected there are no players from Pakistan who have signed up for the CSA T20 League. It is understood from reports because franchises are owned by IPL owners – so Pakistan cricket players are barred from participating. On the other hand, Pakistan players will have schedule constraint as they will be participating in the Pakistan Super League and other home series scheduled.
All teams in the CSA T20 league will have 17-man squads which can have up to 3 overseas players from different countries along with one South Africa international player and one uncapped South African player will be pre-signed. The remaining spots will be filled in after the auction which is supposed to be held soon..
The first edition of the CSA T20 league is scheduled to be held in January 2023. It will have a clash with upcoming International League UAE T20, Big Bash League & Pakistan Super League.
