In a recent report by Cricbuzz, Dean Elgar was quoted saying, “The outcome of that meeting is that the players need to give CSA an indication whether they’re keen to go to the IPL or if they’re keen to play for the Test side”. While the nation is likely to be the priority, a chance in IPL is also important. Hence, it will be a difficult decision for the cricketers.

Meanwhile, captain Dean Elgar has said that he will try to persuade the players to take part for the nation. Regarding this, the player had a view. He said, “It’s a tough one leaving that up to the players, but this is how we’ll see where their loyalty lies. They mustn’t forget that Test and one-day cricket got them into the IPL, not the other way around. Hopefully by next week that will be clearer for us.”
