Mumbai Indians are set to have their team in Cape Town, while arch-rivals Chennai Super Kings will take up the franchise based in Johannesburg. Jindal, Delhi Capital’s co-owner will have his team based out of Centurion in Pretoria. The franchise is likely to retain its ‘Capitals’ and will be called the Pretoria Capitals. Incidentally, both Pretoria and Delhi are capitals of their respective countries.

The reports state that MI and CSK placed the biggest financial bids, close to INR 250 crores. As the IPL model goes, each franchise will have to pay 10 per cent of the franchise fee for 10 years. The franchises have recently seen an influx of South African talent, with MI giving chances to Tristan Stubbs, and Dewald Brevis while CSK has had the likes of Faf du Plessis and Lungi Ngidi among their ranks previously.

Sanjiv Goenka is believed to be interested in the Durban franchise having bought the Lucknow Super Giants last year. Sunrisers meanwhile could have their team based out of Port Elizabeth, while the Rajsthan Royals are expected to take over the Paarl franchise.
