Global T20 League Predictions
The first ever edition of the T20 Global League will be held in 2017 and we are here to give what we think are the best predictions associated with this newly-formed t20 tournament. Latest Global T20 League Tips & Predictions below.
The eight cities in which the franchises of the Global T20 League will be based has now been revealed as Durban, Johannesburg, Benoni, Pretoria, Cape Town, Stellenbosch, Port Elizabeth and Bloemfontein. The team owners have also been named.
The eight teams taking part in the Global T20 League’s first season are Durban Qalandars, Stellenbosch Monarchs, Cape Town Knight Riders, Johannesburg Kings, Pretoria Mavericks, Benoni Zalmi, Bloem Blazers and Nelson Mandela Bay Stars.
According to the Global League T20 format, the eight teams in the competition will play each other twice, on a home and away basis with the top two sides featuring in a one-off final at the end.
A Global League T20 Draft was used to select the players and each of the eight squads now has 18 players in their roster, with one South African and one overseas player in the line-up. This Draft wasn’t too different from the one that was used in the PSL in Pakistan or CPL in the West Indies.
With all the GLT20 squads and teams released, we are not too many days away from coming out with our own little preview to the chances of each team in the tournament and the prediction for the title winner in the first season of the Global League.
According to the fan poll, the Cape Town Knight Riders is the most favourite side with 39% of the fans polling for them to win the title. We think Johannesburg Giants are the team to watch out this first season.
Of course, we will also look to preview and predict every single game in the tournament but that will happen as we get closer to the start of this first edition of the competition.
The match winners and the GLT20 winner predictions will obviously depend on the squads that will be announced later, towards the second half of the year.
