Despite bolstering a star-studded squad, MI Cape Town are not exactly where they would wanted to be on the points table in the inaugural edition of the SA20. The franchise finds themselves fifth, with just 13 points from seven games, with three wins and four losses.
Not just that, the franchise did not have the English all-rounder, Liam Livingstone for the first half of the SA20. With the all-rounder’s recovery uncertain, the franchise has named Australian all-rounder Tim David as his replacement. David scored 345 runs at a strike rate of 160.90 and also picked up one wicket with the ball.
Olly Stone, who started the tournament too has been injured, and Henry Brookes will replace the English pacer. Brookes has picked up 46 wickets in the format, having played 37 times, for Warwickshire and Birmingham Phoenix.
The franchise will resume their season against the bottom-placed side, Durban’s Super Giants on February 2, with a chance to move up the table.
