The second edition of the Dolphins Premier League will start on Saturday, 24 August 2019.
The Dolphins Premier League is effectively the sister tournament of the Cape Premier League.
The eThekwini Hurricanes are the reigning DPL champions, after beating the Tugela Sharks in the inaugural final at Kingsmead in Durban last year.
“We are incredibly excited to have the second edition of the Dolphins Premier League. In last year’s edition there were some incredible games and we expect much the same during the first weekend of matches,” said KwaZulu-Natal Cricket Union coastal cricket services manager Ritesh Ramjee.
The eight-team tournament, which will span three weekends, will feature several franchise cricketers such as Daryn Dupavillion and Eathan Bosch. They will play alongside Proteas cricketers Senuram Muthasamy, Khaya Zondo and others – as well as several club cricket players.
“It’s always exciting to see our Dolphins and provincial players involved and we hope that the tournament helps in exposing some of the gems that sit just below that level,” added Ramjee.
