SA20 2023 | Harry Brook removed from South Africa league by England Cricket Board


In a recent development, the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) have removed Harry Brook to manage their workload from South Africa’s upcoming T20 league, SA20. The ECB informed its Joburg Super Kings and Cricket South Africa (CSA) franchise on Wednesday of the decision regarding his unavailability.

With the inaugural season of South Africa’s new T20 league, SA20 scheduled for January next year, enthusiasm for the new arrival in the franchise league market is high among cricket fans. However, the league suffered a blow before its start as the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) withdrew the player from the tournament. On Wednesday, the ECB forwarded the decision to its Joburg Super Kings and Cricket South Africa franchise.

Chennai Super Kings also own the Johannesburg franchise in the South African League. CEO Kasi Viswanathan confirmed the development saying that the decision is made taking into account the management of the player’s workload.

“Since he plays all three formats, the ECB thinks it is too risky to allow him to play the SA20. We received the communication from the ECB last night. We will have to look for a replacement,” Viswanathan revealed according to Cricbuzz.

However, the young England striker could feature in the three-game ODI series between South Africa and England which will be scheduled in the middle of SA20. The series will run from January 10 to February 11.

Additionally, the decision of the England board will not impact Brook’s availability for IPL 2023.
