Newly appointed CSA CEO, Mr Pholetsi Moseki said:

“It is a very exciting time to be a part of the South African cricket set up and even more so, to be a member of the Proteas team. There is a lot of cricket for our fans to look forward to and we as an organisation, are looking forward to watching our boys represent us to the best of their ability at every opportunity.

“It has been an exceptional season for the white ball team that has not lost a series under the leadership of Temba Bavuma. One of the biggest upcoming highlights for us is the 2022 ICC T20 World Cup in Australia and we are looking forward to supporting Temba and his men as they look to make history later this year.

Central contract fees have yet to be announced but previous earnings could shed light on what to expect. A centrally contracted player typically earns between R1.1 million and R3 million a year with additional fees payable for Tests, T20’s and ODI’s.

The men’s team has a lot to look forward to in the coming 12 months, including a full tour to England, the 2022 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup in Australia in October and several more exciting tours that CSA is looking forward to announce in good time.

The Momentum Proteas’ contracts will be announced at the conclusion of the ICC Women’s World Cup currently taking place in New Zealand.
