Six teams will contest the trophy, playing a total of 30 home and away matches followed by one eliminator match and the grand final, an ICC report said.
President and chairman of the Board, Chris Nenzani said, “Chief Executive Thabang Moroe and his management team have come with a commercial model that is both financially viable and offers promise for an exciting and long-term future that meets all the conditions laid down by the CSA Board of Directors.”
“The Board had no hesitation in recommending this model to the Members Council,” he concluded. (UNI)
