CSA T20 League: Live IPL – South Africa Cricket (CSA) faces one problem after another. After the owners of the Indian Premier League (IPL) swept the CSA T20 league by buying six franchises, a legal letter was sent to the CSA T20 league on Wednesday July 20. Hermis Sports Ventures Limited, which owned Pretoria Mavericks of the stillborn Global T20 League (GLT20), claimed teams were not allowed to be part of CSA’s latest T20 venture. Initially, CSA assured them that they would be part of this new venture, but later the council flip-flopped. Follow live CSA T20 League updates with InsideSport.IN.

The spokesperson for Hermis Sports Ventures Limited – owner of the Pretoria Mavericks told InsideSport “We are not getting any satisfactory response from the board. To protect our rights and investments, we must take legal action against them.”

CSA T20 League: Why did the GLT20 boss take CSA to court?

  • The stillborn owners of the GLT20 were assured in a meeting on August 11, 2018 that if, in the future, the ASC started a T20 league, then they would be entitled to ownership of the new league.
  • Also at a meeting held in Mumbai on August 21, 2018, Thabang Moroe, then Managing Director of CSA, wrote to GLT20 owners that we confirm that each of the previous owners will have an opportunity.
  • After such validation from the ASC, the sudden U-turn hit GLT20 owner Hermis Sports Venture.
  • They didn’t like CSA’s decision and now want to sue CSA

“We confirm that each of you, as former owners, will have the opportunity, on a first right of refusal basis, to acquire the property (or part of the property depending on the amount of equity of team made available for private ownership) of your former teams. Needless to say, this first right of refusal is not unconditional but is subject to conditions such as CSA and/or the special purpose vehicle that has been constituted to manage the league, given the precepts of the financial model then in place, our sourcing policy and other relevant considerations, determine,” said Thabang Moroe.

Apparently, CSA took legal advice on the matter, which held Moroe’s letter to GLT20 owners. The letter did not create any problem with the law. The argument would be bolstered by the fact that the CSA T20 league will be run by Africa Cricket Development (ACD) (Pty) Ltd, which is half-owned by CSA SuperSport holding 30% of the shares, and Sunder Raman, the former IPL chief of exploitation, the remaining 20%.

CSA had promised GLT20 owners ownership of the new T20 league and not ACD, which did not exist at the time.

Sources close to the CSA are convinced that Hermis’ case is unfounded and that they will easily defend it. IPL owners are happy with the development and are being kept up to date.
