More Info On South African Contracts

While we're on the subject of contracts... more info has emerged regarding the contracts issued to six of the leading South African players, including team captain Mignon du Preez.

The bottom line is that they are not full-time "playing" contracts - instead (like the New Zealand contracts) they are coaching jobs with time built-in for training and playing.

However, I am assured that Cricket South Africa see this as just the start - an opportunity for these players to focus on cricket while the structures are evolving to support a more fully professional game at some point in the future.

We all know that South Africa are committed to the future of women's cricket - they are currently hosting the England U19s; and I'm starting to believe that some of those players have a fully professional future within their grasp.
