Richards said South Africa will participate in a bidding process for International Cricket Council events over a new eight-year cycle. The auctions are expected to open in the coming months.

“We will be competing in the Men’s and Women’s World Cups, an Under-19 World Cup and a T20 World Cup,” said Richards.

“But we will be focusing on the 2027 Men’s World Cup. We think this is an ideal opportunity as it will be 24 years since we last hosted it.”

Sports Minister Nathi Mthethwa announced earlier that he would no longer withdraw government recognition from the CSA, which he threatened last week after the members’ council, led by Richards, failed to reach an agreement with a interim advice on a governance structure.
