In an effort to win the elusive title, the franchises are currently getting ready for the first event of the highly anticipated SA20, which begins today. The six franchises recruited up to five players of their choice through independent negotiations to form their core. One of those players had to be an uncapped cricketer from South Africa.
The teams spent a lot of money at the first SA20 auction after building a squad. The most expensive acquisition was a talented batter named Tristan Stubbs. Jofra Archer, Aaron Phangiso, Akila Dananjaya, Andile Phehlukwayo, Senuran Muthusamy, and Jordan Hermann were selected as wildcard players prior to the start of the season. Now that the tournament is about to begin, let’s take a look at how each team has developed in preparation for their first game.

Live Telecast Channel in India and the UK The organizers of SA20 were successful in securing a groundbreaking 10-year broadcast agreement with Viacom18 for the Indian market approximately six weeks after the auction for the first season. Viacom’s sports catalog, which also includes digital rights to the Indian Premier League, will benefit from exclusive rights in India even more.
Sports 18, which is the specific television channel for Indian viewers, will broadcast all 33 SA20 2023 matches. In the meantime, these matches will be streamed live in India by Jio Cinema.
In contrast to Viacom, Sky Sports only recently signed a broadcast agreement with cricket fans in the UK. This is a fantastic development for the first season of a tournament that features numerous prominent English cricketers.
