CSA likely to prevent AB de Villiers, Quinton de Kock from taking part in next IPL
The cash-rich Indian Premier League, which has witnessed nine glorious years with tenth edition being underway, may land into some trouble in its next edition.
If the media reports are to be believed Cricket South Africa may not grant permission to their players to participate in the tournament in 2018.
Haroon Lorgat, CSA chief executive, has reportedly penned down a letter to the BCCI CEO Rahul Johri and requested him to send confirmation regarding India's tour of South Africa. The concerned series is scheduled for a Boxing Day start.
Lorgat's letter has mentioned that South African players will be allowed to participate in the IPL once BCCI confirms the tour dates.
The popular T20 league (IPL) will surely lose its shine in the absence of players like AB de Villiers, Chris Morris, Kagiso Rabada and Quinton de Kock.
Earlier Cricket Australia made an attempt to lure away its key players from IPL by offering them multi-year central contracts.
Reportedly, the offer has been made to Test captain Steve Smith, vice-captain David Warner and fast bowlers Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins. It is believed that players were not excited about the idea as they usually get a one-year contract.
