“The four-day franchise competition will be split into two sections from September to November and again in December and January to dovetail with our Test Series against Pakistan.
“With three international teams visiting us in Zimbabwe, Pakistan and Sri Lanka in addition to the white-ball tour to Australia, this is going to be a jam-packed season and our longest ever as far as franchise players are concerned.
“The franchise T20 Challenge will be played in April and May.
“It adds up to an exciting, challenging and all-action program for all concerned,” concluded Mr. Moroe.
All franchise competitions will be played over a double round with the two white-ball competitions then having two semi-finals and a Final.
