Cricket South Africa (CSA) on Monday opened its register to receive applications from South African and overseas players (which includes both foreign overseas and Kolpak players) interested in participating in the second Mzansi Super League.

The League will take place during the last quarter of 2019, with the teams assembling from 1 November and the tournament running through to the grand final on 16 December.

The closing date to register is 15 July.

Mzansi Super League player classification

A foreign overseas player is defined as a player who holds only a non-South African passport and who is not eligible, under ICC regulations, to play for South Africa. He must either be a current or former international player who has played international cricket in the past 18 months and has a high profile with a proven track record in domestic T20 tournaments around the world.

A “Kolpak” player is defined as a player who is eligible to play for South Africa under ICC eligibility rules but has declared his intention not to play for South Africa and is registered with Kolpak status in another country. For the sake of clarity, a Kolpak player is, for the purpose of the League, classified as an overseas player.

A South African player is one who is eligible and available to play for South Africa and is also currently contracted either at national, franchise or senior provincial level in South Africa. Each team will be permitted to include only one South African player that is not domestically or nationally contracted (excluding Kolpak players).

Players should be available from 1 November until 17 December.
