Cape Town - The South African Cricketers’ Association (SACA), Cape Cobras players and members of the board of the Cape Cobras franchise appeared at a conciliation process meeting held at the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA) in Cape Town on Tuesday. 

The conciliation meeting was held to attempt to resolve the grievance between the majority of the Cobras players and the Cobras head coach, Paul Adams.

“Some pretty forthright discussions took place between the parties at today’s meeting before the Commissioner,” said Tony Irish, chief executive of SACA. 

“It may well be the first time that players and board members have exchanged such frank views on this issue.”

It was agreed by the parties that the conciliation process be extended by 14 days until November 1, 2016 to give SACA, the players and the franchise an opportunity to try to agree a clear process to further monitor, assess and address the situation on the ground.

“The positive” continued Irish, “is that the parties have given themselves a clear two week period to come up with a mechanism which will hopefully finally resolve this dispute.”
