Cricket South Africa, the South African Cricketers Association and the six professional franchises have signed a leading edge agreement which will make professional players genuine stakeholders in the game.

President of CSA, Norman Arendse and the CEO of SACA, Tony Irish announced this statement at the media conference in Johannesburg on Tuesday.

“It’s the first comprehensive agreement of its kind in a professional sport in SA which regulates every aspect of the players’ participation in that sport. It also means players are made stakeholders of cricket which will mean in turn that whatever they earn from the game will depend on how healthy the game is,” says SACA CEO,Tony Irish.

Arendse added that the agreement was the product of co-operation over many months between the players and administrators in the game and its three primary objectives are to:

· Assist cricket in dealing with the annual revenue fluctuations which are part of the international game
· Make players genuine stakeholders in professional cricket
· Clearly state how fundamental player related issues will be dealt with
