The SA20 competition kicked off last week in South Africa to much fanfare. Many people think of this competition as a smaller version of the Indian Premier League (IPL), which has six teams owned by the same people. However, there is no evidence of Indian influence in the SA20. According to the BCCI rules, no Indian player can compete in the tournament. To play in foreign leagues, a player must first retire from Indian cricket, which includes the IPL.
To coach in the South African Twenty20 competition, a player must retire from Indian cricket completely. MS Dhoni has been sidelined at Joburg Super Kings for the same reason. The CSK’s head coach, Stephen Fleming, is affiliated with the rival franchise Joburg Super Kings (JSK) franchise. However, Dhoni is not allowed to act in this manner.
Dhoni may have retired from international cricket, but he cannot be a part of JSK because he still plays in the IPL. Dhoni will be able to take over as coach of JSK as soon as he retires from IPL. He will also be able to work freely in SA20.
Dhoni’s chances of playing in another league after the IPL are slim, but JSK would like to have him involved off the field in SA20. The other SA20 teams are making full use of their IPL players and coaches.
Both Mahela Jayawardene and Zaheer Khan rose through the ranks of the Mumbai Indians, and they now head the coaching staffs of three of the club’s franchises. Gautam Gambhir, current IPL 2022 global mentor and former Lucknow Super Giants coach.
The Joburg Super Kings are fifth in the league, with a 2-2 record. They will play Pretoria Capitals on Wednesday (January 18).
