They must quickly all make a move, before Brexit putts a stop to all off it..

It's in my opinion common sense for players to take on Kolpak contracts... lower risks of being dropped and larger salaries...

It's okay they made a choice so all we need to do is groom lots of younger players whom will take the country forward.S. A has a pool of talented players that requires exposure.

Why are the English clubs only signing white players on Kolpak deals? Surely there must be worthy non white players in our franchises that can do with earning Pounds?

Walter George

Maybe the English clubs don't think so!! But isn't there also a international representation requirement? Just curious

Can any South African player sign a Kolpak deal? No. In 2009, the British Home Office ruled that to sign a Kolpak deal, a player must either have a valid work permit for four years in the UK or have earned a specified number of caps in international cricket. Can a Kolpak player play for his own country while playing for an English county? No. A player must give up his right to play for his country during the length of his deal with a county.

You guys dont get the bigger picture.....its starts at our provincial level....if all our experience crickets go then what!!! Who guides our younger talents...and ofcoz the quality of cricket isnt getting anywhere with all these guys leaving.... Cricket SA is failing the players and Supporters

From my understanding Kolpak players can play for our franchises. So they can still support younger players. Just not for the Proteas.

All the guys that can't get rich on IPL will be looking for these contracts, especially as with Brexit this crazy arrangement will likely be stopped.

De lange is signing a kolpak. What you guys not understanding is that there has to be a bowler with experience to lead the attack

Naaido I wish Parnell can be selected so that you can Swallow your pride/words. we've got plenty of talent is South Africa. I will advise you to watch the domestic cricket first.

Great loss, he was a promising all rounder.. he is 100 times better than that useless Parnell who is just hogging up space coz he is a quota player

Sdunkero Sduduzo Mkhwanazi
Sdunkero Sduduzo Mkhwanazi

was useless in the T20 worldcup on conditions that suited his bowling. Andile Phehlukwayo for the no 7 position

John Hare

How many times has that over rated Steyn been useless in world cups yet CSA persists with him, Parnell as well and here Wiese has an off match or 2 and he gets axed immediately

30+ year old promising \U0001f602\U0001f602 can't field . Parnell has done well since being dropped .

What space? Parnell hasnt even played a match for how long now and I bet his stats is a lot better than what you think. Odi ave is 29 T20 is 24

John Hare

Parnell can't play international cricket, he made is debut at 19 and he was in and out of the team due to major inconsistency

John Hare

Many more will take Kolpak deals, getting paid nearly ZAR20mil a year plus getting adequate game time is extremely tempting
