    The Indian Premier League (IPL) franchisee will make their presence felt in the soon-to-be-launched South Africa's T20 league.
    The South Africa T20 league which starts in January 2023 had its bidding for the team ownership closed on July 13. According to a report in Cricbuzz the owners of six IPL teams have also expressed their interest in owning teams in South Africa's T20 league.

    There is no news of the Knight Riders owning a team in the league. The Knight Riders, owned by actors Shah Rukh Khan, Juhi Chawla, and Jay Mehta, own the IPL team Kolkata Knight Riders and the Caribbean Premier League team Trinbago Knight Riders.
    The league will have a window of January-February 2023. With the league being Cricket South Africa's focus, South Africa refused to travel to Australia in January to play a three-match ODI series so that the top South African players are available for the league.
    The South African T20 league will clash with another upcoming T20 league in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
    Interestingly, with three IPL franchises owning outfits in the UAE's six-team league.
