1 min read

There are benefits to embrace T20 leagues without conflict between franchise tournaments and bilateral matches. According to South Africa wristspinner Tabraiz Shamsi, embracing T20 leagues as a feeder system for international cricket will be beneficial for both forms of the game. After South Africa beat India, Shamsi emphasized the benefits of leagues in creating more players ready for international cricket. Shamsi’s own example demonstrates the value of this system. The South African wrist spinner started in the second tier of South Africa’s domestic system and eventually made his international debut. He believes that leagues around the world, particularly the IPL, have helped players make successful transitions to international cricket. Shamsi expects South Africa to have success stories like these in the future. South Africa will heavily rely on performances in the SA20 tournament to select their T20 World Cup squad. Shamsi believes that the SA20 is incredibly beneficial in preparing for the T20 World Cup. The tournament will provide an opportunity for fringe players to force their way into the T20 World Cup squad. CSA has confirmed that players with SA20 contracts will be unavailable for Test matches as they are obliged to play for the franchises.
