CSA Terminates Contract With Kyle Abbott And Rilee Rossouw

Cricket, Sports

Cricket South Africa (CSA) is in the process of terminating its contracts with Kyle Abbott and Rilee Rossouw. Both these players have signed Kolpack contracts for English county sides. Signing Kolpack contracts mean Abbott and Rossouw’s international career for South Africa is officially over. A large number of South African players have joined English county sides via Kolpack contracts, the most notable name being Kevin Peterson.

Chief Executive of CSA Haroon Lorgat did not hide his disappointment in his statement, “Regrettably we have no option but to sever our ties with both Abbott and Rossouw as they are no longer available for South Africa. It is a disappointing day not just for South African cricket but also for international cricket as these players have given up their opportunity to be seen in action on the international circuit. We have encouraged Rilee and Kyle to reconsider their decisions but both have indicated that they wish to take up Kolpak contracts. Whilst this is a loss for South African cricket we can only wish them well with their overseas careers.”
