MI CAPE TOWN Squad 2023:
MI CT franchise is owned by Mumbai Indian franchise. MI CT is a part of the Mumbai Indian franchise. This is the primary reason behind a number of players of Mumbai Indian playing for the MI CT in the SA20 tournament.
Afghanistan’s Rashid Khan was named as the Captain of MI CT.
MI CT Batters:
Wesley Marshall, Dewald Brevis, Delano Potgieter, Rassie van der Dussen.
The young batting sensation from South Africa, Dewald Brevis, who has been hyped up as the future AB de Villiers, was booked by MI CT as their wildcard pick. Mumbai Indian retained Dewald Brevis in the SA20 because the young batter has done well for the team in the IPL. He also offers versatility with his spin bowling.
Overall, their batting can be a weak link as they lack a central figure in the middle order who may hold the team together. Dewald Brevis and Rassie van der Dussen will be crucial to the team’s batting.
MI CT Wicketkeepers:
Grant Roelofsen, Ryan Rickelton.
MI CT All-rounders:
Sam Curran (ENG), George Linde, Liam Livingstone (ENG), Rashid Khan (AFG) (captain), Odean Smith (WI), Jofra Archer (ENG) (wildcard).
