Cricket South Africa considered and discussed the Task Team report relating inter alia to the future of the T20 GL and other hybrid models at joint CSA Board and Members Council meetings held in Durban over the weekend.

It was resolved that, subject to further discussions with current owners, they pursue the formation of a financially sustainable T20 GL.

This decision is also further subject to CSA’s testing its financial viability in both the local and international markets.

Discussions between CSA and relevant partners in this regard will commence immediately.

Regarding the SACA MoU, CSA confirms its ongoing commitment to negotiate with SACA as its players representative. 

This has never been in doubt.

“We remain committed to the revenue share model,” said CSA President, Chris Nenzani.

“We are a big employer with many constituencies and have sought over the past few months to engage with them with a view to preparing for the negotiations with SACA.

“The collective agreement ends in April this year. We will be ready to commence negotiations in advance of that date,” Nenzani concluded.

With the current four-year planning cycle of the organization ending in April 2018, several of CSA’s administrative models and agreements will need to be further reviewed and enhanced.

Amongst these are its:

Business Model 
Franchise and Members Operating Model
Stadium Operating Model
Collective agreement with SACA 

The following Task Teams were appointed to deal with the above matters.
