As always the provincial teams will compete in three groups - Top 6, Pool A and Pool B. One-day defending champions North West, will compete with Central Gauteng Lions, KwaZulu-Natal Coastal, Northerns, and Western Province in the Top 6. The likes of Boland, Eastern Province, Free State, Kei, South West Districts make up Pool A, while Easterns, Northern Cape, KwaZulu Natal Inland, Limpopo and Mpumalanga comprise Pool B.

The one-day and T20 tournaments will be held alongside one another on the weekends, with matches to get underway on Saturday, January 9. T20s will be played on Sundays, beginning on January 10.

All matches will be held on weekends, with the tournament set to end on April 18.

“We are pleased that no matches have been reduced despite the late start to the season,” commented CSA Acting Chief Executive Kugandrie Govender. “I cannot stress enough the importance of our domestic system and the important role it plays in our talent development pipeline for the Proteas. One only has to look at the number of players who made successful international debuts in the three formats last season,” concluded Govender.
