What Cricket South Africa said

“We have taken note of the market research we have done both in terms of our fans’ requirements at the ground and our TV viewers with the result that we will have earlier starts on most days,” said CSA chief executive officer Thabang Moroe.

“The week-day games will all start at 5:30pm, the Saturday games at 12:30pm and the Sunday double-headers at 10am and 2pm, respectively. This should all make for good family entertainment in a secure and convivial environment.

“We are confident that this will enable us to attract new fans and provide a much more practical package for those fans who rely on public transport to get to and from the venues.

“This latter point was one of the key lessons we learned from last year’s tournament and is very much in line with our vision of making cricket accessible to all whether they are inside or outside the boundary or whether they are watching from home.”

  1. Its unfortunate that no games are being played in Kimberley or Bloemfontein. Or is it because we do not have a franchise?

    Please have a look at this in future because I believe it will help to motivate young players in joining cricket clubs and promote the face of cricket as a whole.
