Cricket South Africa sent an email to SA20 league commissioner Graeme Smith requesting more recognition for the tournament’s success.
A CSA source told Rapport newspaper that the governing body had noticed a “false narrative” that the SA20 had been a huge hit because CSA is not in control of it.
Since the request, CSA chairman Lawson Naidoo has appeared in an SA20 Twitter interview and CSA is also thanked after matches.
When asked by Rapport, Naidoo did not confirm or deny that CSA had made a request to the SA20 for more recognition
“The SA20 league was initiated by CSA, which has the majority stake in African Cricket Development [ACD], which owns the league,” said Naidoo.
CSA owns 57.5% of the league, SuperSport 30% and Indian businessman Sundar Rahman 12.5%.
