Cape Town - Cricket South Africa's (CSA) bonus scandal is the reason why the Proteas failed to obtain a sponsor for the upcoming T20 series - starting at Newlands on Thursday - against Australia.

Richard Glover, CSA's commercial manager, told the website, ESPNcricinfo, that many companies had expressed interest in sponsoring various cricket properties but have asked to hold off until a "line had been drawn under the bonus scandal".

ESPNcricinfo reports that reliable sources confirmed that four companies asked to put their negotiations with CSA on hold until its issues have been resolved.

CSA President, Mtutuzeli Nyoka, is expected to be axed on Saturday at a special annual general meeting. Nyoka has been embroiled in a feud with CSA CEO, Gerald Majola, over the payment of unruly bonuses worth millions last year.

CSA on Tuesday announced a partnership with educational charity, MAD (Make a Difference), for the upcoming Twenty20 International series against Australia.

MAD will be granted exclusive naming rights to the two-match series, at no cost, in a bid to further raise awareness for the foundation’s work in promoting educational opportunities among the youth.
