The Mzansi Super League, the new domestic Twenty20 competition launched by Cricket South Africa, has partnered with Global Citizen, the movement which is seeking to eliminate extreme poverty by 2030.
The inaugural edition of the MSL launched on Friday and is set to run through to December 16. All six teams in the first edition – Cape Town Blitz, Durban Heat, Jozi Stars, Nelson Mandela Bay Giants, Paarl Rocks and Tshwane Spartans – will carry Global Citizen’s logo on their apparel.
CSA chief executive Thabang Moroe said: “The vision from us is to not only have the Mzansi Super League being showcased across the world, but to also to play our part in reminding every citizen that we have a social responsibility. We are all accountable in promoting social cohesion and we are doing this through the wonderful game of cricket.
“In all matches showcased across various platforms in the sub-Saharan region, the United Kingdom, India and the sub-continent region – we will make sure that each player understands his roles in communities that we have to serve each moment of the day.”
