How many teams will qualify in SA20 League?

So what’s different about it? – Actually, there is one big thing. Captains will be allowed to name 13 players before the toss and whittle that down to the final XI after the toss. That means they can make tactical team choices once they know whether they’ll be batting or bowling first.

But other than that, even without the T, it’s still a T20 tournament and it takes pretty much the same shape as another one you may have heard of. There are six teams in total and they will play a round-robin phase, with each team playing the other home and away, followed by semi-finals and a final. There was a pre-tournament auction and each team is allowed a squad of 18 players, the bulk of whom are South African.

On match days, they will be allowed to field four foreign players in each XI.

How are points calculated in SA20?

Here are the few interesting rules which will be implemented for the first time during a T20 tournament. –

SA20 teams will have 13 players, 11 in the XI and the 2 substitutes. – Those 13 players list will be given before the toss, after the toss captains will select their XI and keep 2 as substitutes. Bonus Point in SA20: – If you are chasing, chase it under 16 Overs. – If you are defending, restrict the opponent to 80% of your score. (If you score 160, restrict them below 128). This is only valid when the team batting first doesn’t get bowled out. (Likely). Point System in SA20: – The winning team gets 4 points. If their Run Rate is 1.25 times that of the opposition, they will get 1 extra point. Ex: MI scores 120 in 20 overs. If the Royals chase in 16.1 overs, they get 5 points, if they chase in more than 16.1 Overs, they get 4. Captains can select their playing XI even after the toss. According to the league, positive and attacking fielding will be encouraged, adding that No runs can be taken off an intentional attempt to run out the batter if a direct hit deflects off the stumps.

How many tries for 2 bonus points?

How do Rugby World Cup bonus points work? – Bonus points are simply extra points available to teams during the group stage, outside of the usual points available for wins and losses. A win is worth four, a draw is worth two and losses are worth zero. There are two different bonus points available:

When a team scores four or more tries in a match, they earn a bonus point on top of the points they’ll earn from winning or drawing the game. Another bonus point is available if a nation loses a game within seven points.

For example, if Team A loses to Team B this weekend by a score of 17-10, they’ll earn a single losing bonus point. Teams can earn both bonus points, meaning that a side that loses can still come away with up to two points if they score four tries and lose the game within seven points on the scoreboard.

Is the SA20 a successful league?

Building on the foundation – The tournament has managed to revive fan interest in domestic cricket and the sight of thousands at stadiums around the country, despite the austere times, has shown there is an appetite for the sport. More importantly, it’s been well run because the process is streamlined.

SA20 has a board, which doesn’t interfere on an operational level, and a staff of about 80 people under Smith, working out of a temporary office in Newlands. There are no committees and subcommittees, or a need for board approval at every turn. In short, there is very little red tape. There is a lesson in that for CSA and all the federations in the country.

The streamlined nature of the SA20 and its rapid success proves that the privatisation of cricket (and it could be true of other sports such as rugby) might be necessary for financial success. One drawback is that the momentum that the SA20 has quickly built will end abruptly after the final and fans will have to wait 11 months for it to happen again.

But, in a broader context, the focus that the SA20 has brought to cricket can be used to draw fans and sponsors to the rest of the professional cricket landscape. “The SA20 has been bigger than we expected, with the kind of support we were only hoping for from year two onwards,” said Moseki. “We want to use the momentum created and carry that over into the rest of the season.

There is a lot of cricket to come this summer. “Obviously our budgets are lower, but we will work on using the momentum for other competitions. “We have to keep fans interested in cricket and not only once a year through January. Fan engagement is key, and we’ve learnt a lot from the SA20.” DM168 This story first appeared in our weekly Daily Maverick 168 newspaper, which is available countrywide for R25.

Why is SA20 similar to IPL?

EXPLAINED: Here’s Why SA20 League Is Called Mini IPL The first-ever player auction for the SA20, which is Cricket South Africa’s franchise T20 league, took place on Monday in Cape Town with young 22-old batter Tristan Stubbs cashing the biggest payday – Rand 9.2 million (USD 520,000 approx.) by Sunrisers Eastern Cape.

  • There were other big signings made at the auction table on Monday for the SA20.
  • The inaugural edition of the league is slated to be played in January 2023.
  • Six teams will compete in the first edition of the SA20.
  • Interestingly, all the 6 teams are bought by IPL owners! Yes, and that is the reason why the fans are labelling SA20 as Mini-IPL.

Six of the 10 franchises in the IPL now have teams in South Africa’s biggest T20 league, which has made this tournament all the more attractive for broadcasters as the involvement of IPL owners, and connection with a number of players of the teams, will fetch many Indian viewers to watch SA20. Image Source – Republic World

  • The owners of the Mumbai Indians bought the Cape Town team, naming it MI Cape Town
  • The Lucknow Super Giants owners bought the Durban team, Durban Super Giants
  • The Gqeberha team was sold to the owners of Sunrisers Hyderabad, Sunrisers Eastern Cape
  • The owners of Rajasthan Royals bagged the team based in Paarl – Paarl Royals
  • JSW Sports, the co-owners of Delhi Capitals, bought the Pretoria side – Pretoria Capitals
  • And Chennai Super Kings Cricket Limited roped in the Johannesburg franchise – Jo’burg Super Kings
  • All the teams had picked 4 players before the auction, and completed their 17-man squads on Monday.

Why there is 1 week gap in SA20?

When you, as a responsible (sorta) cricket board, do not want to force the players of your country to forfeit consecutive bilaterals, you’ve got to make some decisions that you’re not necessarily a fan of. Ideally, Cricket South Africa (CSA) would have loved to finish the inaugural SA20 season in one go, but a minor inconvenience in the form of a three-match ODI series between South Africa and England has forced them to halt the league for 8 days.

So here we are, in the midst of an unprecedented franchise-league break. SA20 is already truly one of a kind, isn’t it? Jokes aside, we’ve got nine matches that need to be recapped. And yep, we’ve also got to preview the final leg of the competition, which will start on February 2nd. Let’s get to business, shall we? What does the table look like? In our previous recap, the points table looked like this: Pretoria, Paarl, MICT, DSG, Sun Risers and JSK.

Back then, Pretoria Capitals were breakaway leaders with 13 points and only one point separated the rest. Well, the Capitals are still breakaway leaders but the teams that were placed fifth and sixth respectively after 13 games, JSK and Sunrisers, are both in the Top 4. Only side reallyyyyyy fell off in the second week and that was Durban’s Super Giants, who after winning two of their first three games, lost 4 in a row. L L L L. They need a miracle to make it through to the semis. Every other side is well and truly in contention though, so we’ve got a hell of a last week lined up.

What (interesting things) happened in the previous week? Du Plessis scripts history with maiden SA20 ton It had to be. It just had to be. Will Jacks came agonizingly close but fittingly, it was Faf du Plessis who ended up scoring the first-ever ton in SA20 history. In the very final game before the mid-season break, du Plessis transformed into ‘peak Faf’ in front of the JSK faithful as he smashed an unbeaten 113* off just 58 balls.

Captain. Leader. Legend. ̶Se̶v̶e̶n̶t̶h̶ Sixth heaven for Roelof van der Merwe Not just du Plessis, Roelof van Der Merwe also scripted his name in the history books by becoming the first ever cricketer to take a five-fer in the SA20. In a remarkable spell, the left-arm spinner ran through the DSG batters, picking 6/20 off his 4 overs, as Sunrisers bundled the Super Giants out for a meager 86.

  1. So, after going wicketless in the first game, van der Merwe has 14 (!!!!) in his last 5 matches.
  2. He’s taken them while conceding at an economy of, wait for it, 4.73.
  4. And yep, just like Faf, he is 38.
  5. Yeah, start calling T20 an old man’s game already.
  6. Durban’s Super G̶i̶a̶n̶t̶s̶ Gigantic Nightmare It is bad enough getting bowled out in the 80s once in any season.

But DSG got bundled out in the 80s twice in two matches, CONSECUTIVELY! They outdid JSK’s horror showing against Paarl Royals to get bowled out for 80 vs Pretoria, the lowest-ever total in SA20 history. Rashid recovers from an uncharacteristically average first week After uncharacteristically scalping just 4 wickets at an ER of 8.15 in the first week of the competition, Rashid bounced back emphatically in week two, picking 4 wickets at an ER of 4.00.

Against the Capitals, he registered his personal best bowling figures of the competition yet, taking 3/16. It was also the game in which Rashid brought up a significant milestone in his career, as he breached the 500-wicket mark in the shortest format, He became only the second ever, and the youngest (by some distance) to get to the landmark.

Will Jacks signs off in style Will Jacks lit up the first week of the tournament, and he signed off in style by smashing 56 (25) against DSG and 62 (27) against MI Cape Town. He had a rare failure with the bat against Paarl Royals (4) but even there he ensured to contribute with the ball by picking 2/7, taking the huge wicket of Jos Buttler.

He ‘signed off in style’ because Jacks will be taking no more part in the SA20. He’ll be going straight to New Zealand, where he’ll be linking up with the Test squad. What a tournament for the 24-year-old.270 runs in 7 matches at a SR of 201.49, the best among all batters.19 sixes in total, six more than any other batter in the competition.

An out-of-the-world hit from Stubbs — literally Even if Tristan Stubbs does nothing significant in the second leg of the SA20, it’s okay. He’s already cemented his place in the highlight reels for this tournament THROUGH THIS HIT! No more Phangiso for Super Kings! Jo’burg Super Kings’ wildcard pick Aaron Phangiso sizzled in week one, picking 10 wickets in 6 games at an ER of 7.05, but du Plessis & Co. Duds with the bat > Donovan Ferreira might have just ended up using all his luck and quota of runs in the very first game. His scores since the 82* vs DSG — 6, 7, 3, 17, 4 and 4. > Rilee Rossouw has perhaps been the biggest disappointment. At the halfway stage, he’s amassed 56 runs in 7 innings at an average of 9.33, breaching the 20-run mark just once. > Quinton de Kock has been very hit and miss too. Two fifty-plus scores in the first three matches, but he’s since posted scores of 0, 13, 0 and 6. Top performers with the ball Duds with the ball > With 3 wickets in 7 matches at an ER of 9.42, Sam Curran has been the single biggest dud with the ball in hand. Unlike Rashid Khan, Curran did not bounce back in week two. > Right up there with Curran as the dud of the tournament (so far) with the ball is Jason Holder, who in 7 games has taken 2 wickets at an ER of 10.64. Holder went wicketless in each of his last 4 innings.

How many foreign players can play in SA20?

Sa20 League Points Table The SA20 franchise captains pose with the trophy. (Twitter/SA20_League) Listen to this article SA20 rules reveal that captains can select Playing XI after toss x The new South African T20 league or the SA20 announced some tweaks in its rules on Monday, the major one being that franchise captains can now select their playing XI after the toss.

  1. According to the new rule, skippers have to nominate 13 players before the toss takes place and then zero in on their playing XI after the toss.
  2. The two players who will not make it to the team will be substitute fielders.
  3. There can also be no runs taken off an intentional attempt to run out the batter if a direct hit deflects off the stumps.

There has been an amendment to the free-hit rule as well, a bowled dismissal can’t lead to byes if the ball ricochets off the stumps, stated a SA20 release. “The winning team awarded four points and a bonus-point win generating five points. The bonus point will be awarded to a team who achieves a run rate of 1.25 times that of the opposition.

In case of a no result, both teams will be awarded two points, while the losing team will not receive any points,” the release added. Thirty-three matches will be played over three to four weeks. Like the Indian Premier League, the tournament will allow up to four international players to feature in the playing XIs of each team.

Fact sheet: All about the ATAR THE ATAR is a rank that measures a student’s overall academic achievement in the NSW HSC in relation to that of other students. Because the ATAR is a rank, it allows the comparison of students who have completed different combinations of HSC courses.

  • Tertiary study success depends on many factors, including personal attributes such as ability and motivation, but an achievement measure like the ATAR has been found to be the best single predictor of success.
  • Who calculates and releases ATARs?
  • ATARs are calculated on behalf of institutions in NSW by the Technical Committee on Scaling – a committee set up by the NSW Vice-Chancellors’ Committee. ATARs are confidential and released by UAC to:
  • students who have requested an ATAR
  • institutions to which the students have applied.

They are not provided to the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA), previously BOSTES, or to schools. How is the ATAR calculated? To be eligible for an ATAR a student must satisfactorily complete at least 10 units of Board Developed courses for which there are formal examinations conducted by NESA.

  • The ATAR courses must include at least eight units from Category A courses, two units of English, three courses of two units or greater, and at least four subjects.
  • The ATAR is based on an aggregate of scaled marks in 10 units of ATAR courses comprising the best two units of English and the best eight units from the remaining units, which can include up to two units of Category B courses.

HSC marks achieved in different courses cannot be compared, because it does not take into account the comparative difference between candidates in different courses. So, HSC marks are scaled before they are added to give the aggregate from which the ATAR is determined.

  • The scaling process takes the raw HSC marks provided by BOSTES and estimates what the marks would have been if all courses had been studied by all students.
  • The scaling algorithm is designed to encourage students to take the courses for which they are best suited and which best prepare them for their future studies.

The underlying principle is that a student should neither be advantaged nor disadvantaged by choosing one HSC course over another. Scaling modifies the mean, the standard deviation and the maximum mark in each course. Adjustments are then made to the marks of individual students to produce scaled marks, which are the marks the student would have received if all courses had the same candidature.

  1. What is the relationship between the HSC and the ATAR?
  2. The HSC and the ATAR have quite separate functions even though they are both based on the same course results.
  3. The HSC is:
  • a set of results that provides a profile of achievements across a range of HSC courses
  • an exit certificate that marks the end of 13 years of schooling
  • the gateway to further study and employment
  • awarded and released by BOSTES.

The ATAR is:

  • a rank which provides a measure of overall academic achievement in the HSC in comparison to other students
  • used by institutions to rank and select applicants in an equitable way
  • based on scaled marks, not HSC marks
  • calculated by the institutions for all eligible candidates and released by UAC.

How do students get an ATAR of 99.95? There’s no magic formula to achieving an ATAR of 99.95. Each year, students who achieve the highest rank of 99.95 have done a wide variety of subjects. The top students do have one thing in common, however, they all were placed at or near the top in all their subjects.

  1. Just doing a particular set of subjects won’t guarantee you get a high ATAR – what really matters is how well you do compared to everyone else.
  2. The best advice for students is to do subjects they enjoy and are good at, rather than choosing subjects because of a belief that they will scale well.
  3. Do institutions use selection criteria other than the ATAR? While the ATAR may be the best single predictor of academic success, institutions acknowledge that there are other selection criteria which are relevant to certain courses.

Institutions may base their selection of students on an interview, audition, portfolio, questionnaire or test. Sometimes these selection criteria are used on their own and sometimes in conjunction with the ATAR. Are the cut-offs the ATAR students need to get into a course? No.

  • The cut-off for a course does not necessarily represent the minimum ATAR required for entry into the course.
  • Cut-offs include bonus points, and many students with ATARs below the cut-off get offers.
  • If a student is eligible to get bonus points, does that student’s ATAR change? No.
  • Bonus points don’t change the ATAR; bonus points change a student’s selection rank for a particular course that has been listed as a preference.

If a student is allocated bonus points, that student may receive an offer to a course even though their ATAR is below the published cut-off. If bonus points don’t increase the ATAR, then how do they work? Bonus points are awarded for various things, such as performance in relevant HSC subjects, living or attending school in an area defined by the institutions, and consideration through Educational Access Schemes (see overleaf).

  • Bonus point schemes are different for each institution and often for each course at the same institution.
  • This means that a student’s selection rank can be different for each course listed in their course preferences.
  • For Year 12 students who have bonus points, their selection rank for each preference = ATAR + bonus points,

Do the cut-offs include bonus points? Yes. The cut-off is the lowest rank (including any bonus points) required for entry into a particular course. For example, course A has six applicants and only three places available. The six applicants have the following selection ranks:

  1. 99 (ATAR of 99)
  2. 98 (ATAR of 97 plus 1 bonus point)
  3. 97 (ATAR of 95 plus 2 bonus points)
  4. 96 (ATAR of 96)
  5. 95 (ATAR of 93 plus 2 bonus points)
  6. 94 (ATAR of 94)

Offers will be made to applicants 1, 2 and 3. Applicant 4 will not receive an offer even though that applicant has an ATAR higher than applicant 3. The cut-off for course A will be 97. Do institutions give any consideration to students with long-term educational disadvantage? All institutions have Educational Access Schemes (EAS) for students who have experienced long-term educational disadvantage.

  1. These schemes make provisions for students whose studies have been disrupted by a variety of factors, such as the illness of a family member or excessive carer responsibilities, or who are statistically under-represented in higher education.
  2. Most institutions allocate bonus points to eligible EAS applicants, which may allow those students entry into a course even though they have an ATAR below the published cut-off.
