Cricket South Africa to host 3-team Solidarity Cup

Three teams, two halves, and 24 South African players

After a few months of being deprived, cricket fans can now look forward to some live action this month. On 18 July, the inaugural Solidarity Cup will showcase a brand new format, which will see three teams of eight players compete in one match. 

SOUTH AFRICA’S TOP CRICKETERS WILL TAKE THE FIELD
This once-off event, which was scheduled for 27 June but was postponed due to concerns over the Covid-19 pandemic, takes place at SuperSport Park and will be broadcast on SuperSport. The three teams are the Eagles captained by AB de Villiers, the Kingfishers captained by Kagiso Rabada and the Kites captained by Quinton de Kock.

WHAT ARE THE RULES?

  • Three teams (made up of 8 players each) compete in one match of 36 overs.
  • Those 36 overs are divided into two halves of 18 overs.
  • Each of the three teams will have an innings of 12 overs (six in each half).
  • Each team bowls six overs at the two other teams.
  • Each bowler may bowl a maximum of three overs in total.
  • When the seventh wicket of a team's innings falls, the final batsman will bat out for the rest of the innings and can only score in twos, fours and sixes.
  • As always, the team with the most runs at the end of the 36 overs wins.

HERE ARE THE TEAMS
Eagles: AB de Villiers (c), Aiden Markram, Rassie van der Dussen, Kyle Verreynne, Andile Phehlukwayo, Sisanda Magala, Junior Dala, Lungi Ngidi

Kites: Quinton de Kock (c), Temba Bavuma, Jon-Jon Smuts, David Miller, Dwaine Pretorius, Lutho Sipamla, Beuran Hendricks, Anrich Nortje

Kingfishers: Kagiso Rabada (c), Reeza Hendricks, Janneman Malan, Faf du Plessis, Heinrich Klaasen, Chris Morris, Glenton Stuurman, Tabraiz Shamsi
