Two teams, Cape Town Blitz and Jozi Stars, which had dominated throughout the tournament met each other in the final of the inaugural edition of the Mzansi Super League (MSL). It was the Jozi Stars who emerged triumphant ultimately to clinch the glorious trophy. Played for about a month, the MSL amused the fans with some great fun.
The league definitely lived up to the expectations and promises to come back bigger and stronger next year. There were some wondrous exhibits on display which were highly gratifying. A few players stepped up big time and did exceptionally well. Here is the XI formed out of the best players in this edition of the tournament.
1. Quinton de Kock (wk) | Cape Town Blitz
Quinton de Kock missed the initial few games of the tournament due to national duties. However, ever since he came back, he fared really well. The wicket-keeper batsman rediscovered his lost form in MSL 2018 and provided the Blitz with some lightening starts.
He scored one century and three half-centuries in the tournament. Ultimately, he finished with 412 runs in only 8 games at an average of 59. He scored his runs at a rate of 169 which is mindblowing when combined with the average. De Kock will keep wickets as well in this XI.
