After announcing that both male and female cricket players will get the same match fees for international matches, South Africa became the most recent nation to offer equal compensation for work done by both sexes.

The Proteas follow the historic statement from the ICC earlier this year that saw equal prize money for men’s and women’s teams at ICC events. The Proteas join New Zealand and India as nations who have previously confirmed pay parity across the genders.

In addition to being able to hire more full-time coaches and support personnel, teams in South Africa’s domestic tournament will now be permitted to sign up to 11 players, five more than the previous limit of six.

Pholetsi Moseki, CEO of Cricket South Africa, stated that the reforms are a crucial step towards building on the legacy left by hosting the T20 World Cup earlier this year and will contribute to the expansion of women’s cricket in the nation.

The Professional Women’s Cricket League, an initiative that honours the outstanding accomplishments of our national women’s cricket team and sets the path for an even brighter future, was announced by Moseki. “We are thrilled to do so,” she added.

“The professionalisation of the women’s domestic structure aims to elevate the women’s cricketing landscape by providing a platform for local talent to shine, nurturing a culture of sporting excellence, and inspiring the next generation of players,” reads the statement on the women’s domestic structure.We think that local talent will benefit from South African cricket’s success on the international arena, which will develop resilience, growth, and a strong passion for the game.

The idea of professionalising the domestic system for women has been enthusiastically received by sponsors, players, and fans alike. Given that the league has the ability to change the perception of women in sports in the nation, we urge sponsors to continue supporting women’s cricket.

Next month, when South Africa’s women’s cricket team travels to Pakistan for a six-match white-ball series against the Asian team, the new match fees will go into effect.

Beginning on September 1, South Africa will play three Twenty20 Internationals in Karachi. On September 8, they will play three 50-over matches in the same city.
