CEO of cricket SA, Thabang Moroe, confirmed that they have opened a register for applications from South African and overseas players to take part in the SA T20 League.
The tournament will start on November 9 to mid-December.
Moroe says they are currently ironing out a few issues with the player's unions as there are concerns whether the tournament will go ahead or not.
He says that the weak economy is making it difficult for Cricket South Africa to keep all the talent within its borders.
We have cricket talent in abundance and it is very easy for our guys to be poached in other T20 competitions.— Thabang Moroe, CEO of cricket SA
Moroe explained Cricket Sa's decision to open up registrations for T20 which is different to how other countries are doing it.
We decided to open it up so that there is a level of fairness in terms of compilation of various squads. But we will do is that through the matrix system we will allocate the Proteas to all teams.— Thabang Moroe, CEO of cricket SA
Each team will have a minimum of three proteas in it.— Thabang Moroe, CEO of cricket SA
