The Kia Super League is back bigger and better with its fourth edition. Right after the Women’s Ashes have come to an end, top cricketers from all across the globe will be in England for this exciting tournament. The league kicks off on the 6th August and the final will be played on the 1st September. It is a great time to be in England right now for all the cricket fans with Men’s Ashes, both men’s and women’s T20 leagues going on simultaneously.
Surrey Stars will enter into this edition of the tournament as the defending champions. There is a slight change in the format as well this year in the Kia Super League. The team that finishes first on the points table will enter into the final directly while the second and third teams will battle it out in the semi-final for the other berth in the final.
