What CSA senior cricket manager Johan Weyers said

“The CSA high performance contracts are offered to talented players who are part of the provincial system and are identified based on their performances and the skill set required at the national level,” said Weyers.

“It’s a two-year contract whereby players can focus on improving their overall skills and closing the performance gaps between provincial cricket and their national peers.

“The contracted players will also be invited to the high performance and national camps. This helps focus on the high performance players, while measuring them against the nationally-contracted players and preparing them for what’s required at international level.”

What CSA chief executive officer Pholetsi Moseki said

“This is fantastic news for this group of immensely talented players and on behalf of CSA, we would like to congratulate and wish them well for the next chapter of their journey,” added Moseki.

“The grit and determination they have shown to get to this point in their burgeoning careers deserves the reward of stability that allows them to narrow in on enhancing their talents, while taking the required steps to earn a senior cap and represent the Proteas badge.

“We look forward to seeing their continuous progress through the ranks and hope to see them on the field inspiring the current and future generations of women’s cricket as South Africa prepares to host the inaugural Under-19 Women’s T20 World Cup and Women’s T20 Cricket World Cup early next year.”
