Cricket South Africa

I have always loved the South African Team. Of course I am talking about the team that played in the 1990’s. If you are a regular reader of my blog, you would have realised by now that I am quite fond of the cricket of that era. They had some amazing players.
Allan Donald. Shaun Pollock. Mark Boucher. Jacques Kallis. Gary Kirsten.  Oh and I LOVED Jonty Rhodes. The catches he made while flying in the air. Amazing. Even Hansie Cronje I liked. That’s most of the players of that time if you ask me.

The current team is good. But none of them have made my favourite players list. YET. Never say never eh?

So, now, we are here talking about CSA. Cricket South Africa. CSA T20 challenge begins. CSA is the governing body for amateur and professional cricket in South Africa. Ram Slam T20 Challenge is the premier T20 Cricket Competition that takes place in South Africa. They changed the name a lot. It was first known as Standard Bank Pro20 series until 2010-2011. Then it was MiWay T20 Challenge for 2011-2012. Now it is RamSlam T20 Challenge.
What’s in a name right?
The tournament was born in 2003-04. The last one was played in 2016-17. There are six teams.
