CSA leaves out ICL players from domestic league
South African cricketers who have signed up to play in the Indian Cricket League (ICL) have been left out of the country’s domestic competition starting on Thursday.
The players include Lance Klusener, Nicky Boje, Johan van der Wath and Loots Bosman.
Their exclusion follows a ruling by the general council of Cricket South Africa that it would prevent local players from signing with the ICL.
The CEO of the KwaZulu-Natal Cricket Board, Cassim Docrat, said today they had no alternative but to follow the dictates of their national body.
“We shall see how this situation develops”, said Docrat.
But the CEO of the South African Cricketers Association, Tony Irish, said they were not happy with the ruling.
He said they would investigate whether the matter could be taken up legally.
