Cricket South Africa are exploring the idea of adding two new franchises to its domestic structures.
Sunday newspaper Rapport reports CSA are considering a proposal which would see the current system of six franchises be increased to eight.
If the proposal is approved, CSA will have to decide which two cities will be awarded the franchises. According to Rapport, Border is considered an ‘obvious’ choice considering the logistical problems its association with Eastern Province under the Warriors franchise creates.
CSA’s strict new transformation guidelines are also a factor in possibly awarding a franchise to Border.
Potchefstroom, Benoni and even George are reportedly under consideration for franchise status.
