Here is the new Proteas T20 jersey, the uniform for the South African national T20 team for the 2020/21 cricket season. The new kit, made by technical partners New Balance, was officially released on August 13, 2020.
The Proteas haven’t played cricket for a while due to the Coronavirus pandemic- they toured India in March but left without playing a game, and the next one to the Windies, scheduled for last month, was cancelled. Some key South African cricketers were involved in a special 3TC game on Mandela Day, won by AB de Villiers’ Eagles side.
As is the case with T20 shirts, New Balance have experimented a bit with the jersey. It also carries the words “Protea Fire” inside the neck of the shirt, as can be seen in the pics below.
The thirteenth edition of the Indian Premier League has been finally confirmed, and it will be played from September 19 to November 10 in UAE.

The matches will be played at Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah respectively. The afternoon game will commence at 330 pm IST, while the evening once will start at 730 pm.

AB’s Eagles won the inaugural 3TC Solidarity Cup by beating Quinny’s Kites and KG’s Kingfishers at Supersport Park on Mandela Day.
Here are our talking points from the game.
1.Glenton Stuurman the find of the game
The ball of the day came from young pacer Glenton Stuurman, who sent Rassie van der Dussen’s stumps flying. Stuurman built up some good pace and proved difficult for the batsmen to get away. A player we definitely hope to see more of in the near future.
2.Dropped catches give De Villiers lifeline
De Villiers scored a fine 61 (24) on his return to cricket in the Republic, but was given a lifeline twice in his innings. He was dropped by keeper Heinrich Klaassen off the bowling of Tabraiz Shamsi on 1, and Thando Ntini then dropped a return catch when the Eagles captain was on 8. You don’t give a batsman like De Villiers one chance, much less two, and he made his opponents pay for the drops.
