It was a very successful Mzansi Super League 2018 which was the inaugural edition of the annual tournament last year. 6 franchise teams participated and from them, Jozi Stars emerged victorious last year, completing an easy chase against Cape Town Blitz in the final. Rassie van der Dussen topped the batting charts with 469 runs in 12 games while Duanne Olivier topped the wicket-takers charts with 20 wickets in 10 games, both representing the Stars itself.
The Mzansi Super League 2019 has 32 T20s scheduled to take place between 8 Nov – 16 Dec 2019; it promises to be yet another exciting season with a few transfers and many new signings at the Mzansi Super League auction. From the schedule to squads to fantasy tips and previews to Mzansi Super League teams, you can get all the information you need on MSL 2019 here…
Beginning on 8th November, each team will play each other twice in this double round robin format, meaning a total of 10 games per team. The season begins with a single match on 8 November between last year’s finalists, Jozi Stars and Cape Town Blitz. Only Sundays will be double headers throughout the Mzansi Super League 2019. On 13 December will be the Eliminator between the 2nd and 3rd placed teams while the mega final takes place on 16 December; the table topper goes through directly.

* Paarl Rocks lose Aiden Markram and David Willey to injuries, while they give a chance to 19-year old Thando Ntini, who is the son of former legendary South African pacer, Makaya Ntini. ** Jozi Stars picked an extra overseas player in Shoaib Malik who will take over from Chris Gayle, the latter being available for only the first 6 games.
The defending champions Jozi Stars begin as joint favourites and why not? They have a strong squad but what’s surprising is that Tshwane Spartans are also joint favourites with them, both at odds of 4.50 to win the tournament. Spartans finished second last in MSL 2018.
