SA seeks further discussion with ICC on cricket revamp

Cricket South Africa (CSA) said on Saturday that further meetings with the International Cricket Council (ICC) would be needed before the two bodies could reach an agreement on the ICC's revamp proposals.

The ICC announced plans in Dubai on Tuesday relating to the future structure, governing of the game and financial models of the organisation.

It said it had received unanimous support from members including CSA. But CSA said later that the unanimous support was subject to approval.

The cricketing body held a joint session on Saturday to discuss the issues surrounding the ICC's new plans.

"We had a very fruitful and constructive session today," said CSA president Chris Nenzani.


"After carefully considering the ICC revamp proposals, we have reached a position where we will need to engage further with the ICC leadership before we can reach a consensus position ahead of next Saturday's ICC board meeting.

"I am confident that we can reach [an] agreement based on the principles that we strongly adhere to," said Nenzani.

"As these are sensitive matters, there will be no further comment at this stage." – Sapa
