Cricket South Africa Chief Executive Thabang Moroe has confirmed that the BCCI, the most competitive, experienced and successful national cricket board to run a professional T20 league, has agreed to support CSA in its new initiative.
“I am delighted to announce that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has accepted our invitation to make some of their senior administrators, who have extensive experience in running the Indian Premier League (IPL), available to assist with the smooth running of our tournament,” Moroe has stated.
“Their experience will be invaluable and will assist in ensuring that the League is one of international standing.”
Moroe was speaking at a Press conference in Cape Town where he also confirmed that SABC (South African Broadcast Corporation) will be the exclusive broadcast partner for the league.
CSA has also added that it would announce the host cities in the next couple of days. While decisions are now finally being taken, CSA has left it all very late and with the tournament due to get underway on November 9, there is a lot of uncertainty surrounding whether or not it will be a success.
