Cape Town - Cricket South Africa's (CSA) board is considering enforcing a new quota system in franchise cricket for the upcoming domestic season, reports the Eyewitness News website.

The new ruling would force franchise teams to field at least two black African players in their starting teams.

CSA CEO Haroon Lorgat confirmed that the proposal is one of a number that came out of the sport’s Transformation Indaba held in Johannesburg last month.

Lorgat said the proposal will be considered at the next CSA Board meeting on October 11.

He assured that the ruling - if enforced - would not extend to the national team.

HAVE YOUR SAY: Should Cricket SA go ahead and enforce this new proposed quota ruling? Or are there enough players of colour in domestic cricket? Send your thoughts to Sport24.
