CSA has extended the total number of contracted players from 14 to 15 for women as they declared the names of the players who have been given the contract keeping in mind the upcoming Women’s World Cup 2022.
CSA has added Lara Goodall to the list of 15 players after seeing her consistency in the recent games played by South Africa Women.
“It is a matter of great pride that CSA has increased the number of women’s contracts from 14 to 15 for the very first time,” CSA Acting Chief Executive, Mr. Pholetsi Moseki, said in his comments.
“We are confident that the number of selected players for both the men’s and women’s teams is sufficient to maintain them across the formats in which they participate,” he said.
“We are about to enter into a very important cricket season with ICC World Cup events for both the men’s and the women’s teams and we are confident that we have the correct personnel and necessary depth within the system to produce teams that will challenge the best in the world in the coming 12 months,” he added.
“On behalf of CSA, I would like to congratulate Lara Goodall and Heinrich Klaasen on their newly awarded contracts. Their performances on the field of play as well as the way they have carried themselves off the field have done the talking for them and we are pleased to reward the hard work that they have put in,” he concluded.
