Last month, the six franchises announced the players retained for the second edition of the tournament.

The Durban Heat, meanwhile, have appointed former Proteas batsman Gary Kirsten head coach. West Indian Donovan Miller has succeeded Proteas interim team director Enoch Nkwe as head coach of the Jozi Stars.

“The MSL is now an established global brand that is taking its place at the head table alongside the other global T20 events,” said CSA chief executive officer Thabang Moroe in August.

“We have drawn interest from around the world with players applying from virtually all the top-tier international countries.”

The Stars are the defending champions, after beating the Blitz in last year’s inaugural final at Newlands.
