Johannesburg is just another city being represented in this T20 tournament. This franchise is owned by the GMR group, who is not new in this game. They have owned teams like Delhi Daredevils in the IPL. It is not a necessary thing to explain but any Businessman would like to expand its horizons. The GMR group has done so by investing in cricket franchise of South Africa. They will host their home matches in the ground called Wanderers Stadium.

Joburg Giants Team Details


Owner: GMR Group
Home ground: Wanderers
Coach: S Sriram
Marquee South African: Kagiso Rabada
Marquee international: Brendon McCullum (NZ)

The GMR group expects that this team in the T20 Global League 2017 is going to exceed the expectations. Delhi Daredevils could not make it quite big in the Indian Premier League but they are definitely one of the most entertaining teams in all the seasons. The GMR group did not want to take big risks yet again and hence they decided to pick some really good players for the Joburg Giants team squad. Investing in Protean players has always been working for Delhi Daredevils and that's why they tried to do the same with this team as well. In fact, Rabada, who was the most expensive player to have been bought in the IPL auction, is picked by this team in the draft ceremony as well. After all, he reached up to expectations of the team and became the star performer. Investors would like to see that exact form in him in this tournament as well.

The very hard hitting New Zealand batsman, Brendon McCullum was picked to be a part of the Joburg Giants team squad. He has been the captain of many of teams all across the world and his experience is definitely going to come in play. His batting skills are so much that he can even single handedly lead his team to the victory. Apart from him, Colin Ingram who is in the best form of his life, lately was also found worthy by the team.

Apart from the players playing on the field, the people training them are also effective. No matter how many people say that the players are the only ones who matter, at the end of the day, the coaches play a very big role. S Sriram is the current spin consultant with Australian Cricket team and has been a former Indian player. He is elected as the head coach for Joburg Giants.
