“The Mzansi Super League has been moved to a new slot, while the domestic programme will as far as possible dovetail with our international programme,” said CSA director of cricket Graeme Smith.
The tournament was introduced in 2018, when the Jozi Stars beat the Cape Town Blitz in the inaugural final.
The Paarl Rocks are the reigning champions. They won the 2019 title.
The tournament was not played in 2020 amid the coronavirus pandemic.
