The alarming trend of players opting for county cricket over the South Africa national team has forced the board to think about the long-term contract for its cricketers, said top CSA official Corrie van Zyl.

The former South African pacer and interim coach, who is currently the Director of Cricket at Cricket South Africa (CSA), admitted that the board is serious about retaining its talented players, most of whom are taking the KOLPAK route to play English county.

"What are the reasons that some of the players signed Kolpak deal are best known to them. I can't speculate as to why they would want to do that.

What is important for Cricket South Africa is to ensure that we can retain our best players," Van Zyl saidd.

Van Zyl said that they are working on having long-term contracts.
