Due to increased competition among the numerous T20 leagues for players, Moeen Ali & Jason Holder have also joined.
Moeen Ali, Jason Holder, Liam Livingstone, and Jos Buttler have signed up to participate in South Africa’s upcoming T20 league, which will begin play in January and pay players up to $300,000. Six teams will compete in the league, which is being run by former South African captain Graeme Smith.
Each club will have a $2 million budget for player recruitment.
Although the exact dates are not yet set, the league is anticipated to begin on January 11 and conclude on February 12 of the following year.
Due to the clash between the two leagues, T20 cricketers will be in high demand in January, something that has never previously happened in the history of the sport. Livingstone, for instance, is one of the top picks in the BBL’s international draught, but it now appears improbable that he would spend the entire season in Australia.
Finding a good roster of international players was the primary concern for the clubs in the CSA league and the ILT20, both of which were controlled by IPL owners. The ILT20 has raised the stakes by possibly paying the top players up to USD 450,000, making it the second-highest paid league in the world behind the IPL.
