The Ram Slam T20 Challenge is the premier Twenty20 Cricket competition in South Africa, first contested in the 2003–04 season. It was known as the Standard Bank Pro20 Series from its inception to the 2010–11 season and the MiWay T20 Challenge for the 2011–12 season.

History[edit]

The tournament has been contested since its inception by the six franchise teams but for the 2007–08 season, Zimbabwe took part as a seventh side.[1]

In 2009, Standard Bank added new stadium activations to enhance the crowd viewing experience. A large part of the Pro20 campaign has been the use of social media to promote and create excitement around the games.
