What CSA said
“It is a very exciting time to be a part of the South African cricket set-up and even more so, to be a member of the Proteas team,” said CSA chief executive officer Pholetsi Moseki.
“There is a lot of cricket for our fans to look forward to and we as an organisation, are looking forward to watching our boys represent us to the best of their ability at every opportunity.
“It has been an exceptional season for the white-ball team that has not lost a series under the leadership of Temba Bavuma.
“One of the biggest upcoming highlights for us is the 2022 ICC T20 World Cup in Australia and we are looking forward to supporting Temba and his men as they look to make history later this year.
“The Test team has grown and shown significant improvement under the strong leadership of Dean Elgar. This season will see the Proteas play even more Test cricket, which is vital for the growth of the players, the format in our country, as well as the accumulation of points towards the ICC World Test Championship.
“We at CSA are big advocates of rewarding excellence and I am pleased to be the first to congratulate Janneman Malan and Keegan Petersen on their newly awarded contracts.”
