What is the format of MSL?
Mzansi’s Super League matches will be familiar to any T20 game. During the 30-game round-robin stage, teams will accumulate 4 points for a win, 3 points for a draw, 2 points, if the game is canceled or interrupted before a result, can be reached, or a zero round for a loss. The winning teams can also add a bonus point when they end up with an execution rate of 1.25 times higher than their opponents.
There are 85 minutes allocated to each entry with a fixed interval of 20 minutes between them, and teams will be penalized with one point for each unreleased within this time.
After heavy rains forced the abandonment of last year’s eliminator before a ball was thrown, allowing Jozi Stars to qualify for the finals by finishing with more points from the group stage, this time, the reserve days are scheduled two for the two knockout matches of the tournament.
