Three sided cricket  :o

Three teams playing in the same match, eight players per side and some international stars - a new cricket format will make its debut in South Africa this month.

Welcome to 3TeamCricket, which will be the first live sporting event in South Africa since the nation went into coronavirus lockdown in March.

Three teams will compete for the Solidarity Cup at Centurion Park in Gauteng on 27 June to help raise funds for those involved in cricket who have suffered during the pandemic.

The Eagles are led by ex-South Africa captain AB de Villiers, pace bowler Kagiso Rabada will captain the Kingfishers and wicketkeeper Quinton de Kock takes charge of the Kites.

SA cricket is in dire financial trouble and their T20 competition has been a flop, so guess they need to try something different.

Talking about BLM, as powerful a statement about the situation as I've heard from anyone.
