CSA T20 League: Moeen Ali, Faf du Plessis To Join Hands With Chennai Super Kings (CSK) Franchise. The Inaugural edition of International League T20 (ILT20) has gathered players from all around the world. But, due to the clash between CSA (Cricket South Africa) T20 league and ILT20, there arrives a competition between these two to lure players around the world to play for their leagues.

The Chennai Super Kings Cricket Limited has successfully managed to sign in Moeen Ali, who had earlier signed up for International League T20 (ILT20), for South Africa’s T20 league. The English all-rounder will turn out for the Johannesburg-based team which will also see CSK reunite with Faf du Plessis, who is set to lead the team in the inaugural edition in January.

Apart from these two players, the Super Kings have also landed an all-rounder from the Caribbean and a spinner from Sri Lanka. With Ali joining the CSA League, it might have boosted hope in CSA League as it is competing with ILT20 which is offering a great amount of money to the players who are ready to play for their league (Not as much as IPL).

Teams in CSA’s league are allowed to sign five players – one South African, three overseas players (only two from a country) and developmental players before the auction.

Also, Mumbai Indians, which own MI Cape Town, announced their new signings on Thursday and they are Kagiso Rabada, Rashid, Sam Curran, Livingstone and Dewald Brewis. Du Plessis and Brewis are not the only South Africans who will continue their association with the same IPL franchise.

Quinton de Kock, who plays for Lucknow Super Giants will turn out for the Durban-based team which is also owned by the RP Sanjeev Goenka group. The Sunrisers Hyderabad, who have bought the Port Elizabeth franchise, has picked Aiden Markram as their local player.

Delhi Capitals have chosen Anrich Nortje for its Pretoria team. Rajasthan Royals, who own the Paarl franchise are believed to have signed Jos Buttler and David Miller.

Pakistan Players might miss out on playing in these two leagues

Pakistan Cricket Board will not be issuing any no-objection certificates as it will clash with their domestic and international commitments. Although none of them plays in the IPL owing to government restrictions, officials in the know revealed that in case they are made available, they could be in action.
