4 popular players who will miss the remaining part of SA20 after the week-long break
After a week-long break, SA20 will resume on February 2nd. However, most teams will miss some key players for the second and final leg of the tournament. In this article, we take a look at four popular players who will miss the remaining part of SA20 after the week-long break.
Considering the ongoing Super League, the ODI series between South Africa and England had to happen. Hence, the organizers were forced to introduce a break in the tournament, which had gained a lot of popularity. Now, a lot of overseas cricketers will leave for their international assignments and hence, they won't be available for the remaining part of the competition. This is a big blow to both the teams and the organizers.
1) Will Jacks - Pretoria Capitals
Will Jacks is one of the popular players who will miss the remaining part of SA20 after the week-long break. Will Jacks was arguably the best batter in the first phase of the league. The English cricketer scored a lot of runs and all of them came at a good strike rate. The player also picked up some vital wickets for his team. He will now join the England Test Team for the New Zealand series. Hence, he will not be available for the Capitals, who will miss his services dearly.
2) Jason Holder - Durban Super Giants
Jason Holder might not have set the scene on fire for DSG but his experience would have still been handy. Now, the West Indian all-rounder will leave for Zimbabwe to take part in the Test series against Zimbabwe. It will be an important series for West Indies and hence, Holder has to be in the squad.
3) Kyle Mayers - Durban Super Giants
Kyle Mayers is also one of the popular players who will miss the remaining part of SA20 after the week-long break. The West Indian all-rounder had produced a few decent performances for DSG. For the balance of the squad, he was a necessary resource. However, he will leave for the Zimbabwe Test Series along with Holder and the others. It needs to be seen how DSG would tackle the absence of their all-rounders.
4) Alzarri Joseph - Joburg Super Kings
Alzarri Joseph has been an asset for JSK in SA20 League. He delivered a lot of wickets for the franchise, especially in crunch situation. It could be said that he was leading the pace attack. His absence will be a great loss for the Super Kings, who were gaining some form in the competition. The manner in which they replace him might decide the fate for the squad.
