Notably, Cricket South Africa (CSA) announced on July 19 that former captain Graeme Smith has been appointed as the Commissioner of South Africa's new T20 league. Smith, Cricket's most successful Test captain, will lead the new T20 League overseeing all aspects (both cricketing and non-cricketing) and developing what is anticipated to be a dynamic brand that showcases the strength of South African cricket. 

Earlier on April 29, Cricket South Africa (CSA) and SuperSport TV had announced the formation of a t20 competition featuring six private-owned franchises starting from January 2023 onwards.
