CSA are invoking both the WTC and the FTP agreement terms in search of points on the table as well as financial compensation from CA

Cricket South Africa (CSA) have lodged a formal complaint with the ICC over Cricket Australia’s (CA) decision to indefinitely postpone next month’s three-Test series. Last week, CSA wrote to both the ICC and CA expressing their dissatisfaction at the tour being pushed back, also asking for means of redress after CA cited an “unacceptable” level of Covid-19 risk in South Africa as their reason for not traveling. But now, CSA have escalated the matter and asked for it to be heard at the ICC’s dispute resolution council.

In a letter sent by acting CEO Pholetsi Moseki, seen by ESPNcricinfo, CSA are invoking both the World Test Championship (WTC) and the FTP agreement terms in search of points on the WTC table as well as financial compensation from CA. They have asked the ICC to look into whether CA’s cancellation amounts to acceptable or unacceptable non-compliance as per the WTC terms, bearing in mind that the series cannot be rescheduled before the end of the WTC window, which is April 30, 2021. They also want ICC to obtain a report on the health situation in South Africa to determine if Australia breached the terms by not traveling.
