Cricket South Africa's board will need to consider if Mark Boucher's contract as head coach will extend to the rescheduled 2023 World Cup after the ICC moved the tournament from its original February-March window to October-November.
Boucher was hired in mid-December 2019 on a deal that would keep him in place until the World Cup's originally scheduled finish in the first quarter of 2023. With the competition moved back by seven months, the duration of Boucher's tenure could be reconsidered.
"The board may need to consider the fact that with the World Cup being moved, the dates no longer doesn't align with World Cup," CSA acting CEO Dr. Jacques Faul told ESPNcricinfo.
Boucher has so far overseen South Africa through one summer, in which they lost a home Test series to England and won only one of five trophies on offer. His next assignment was due to be a white-ball series in Sri Lanka in June, followed by a two-Test, five-T20I series in West Indies.
In the fallout of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Sri Lanka tour has been postponed and the Caribbean trip will have to be rescheduled, with West Indies due to be in England until July 29. CSA is in ongoing discussions with Cricket West Indies on when and where to play the series, especially as South Africa's coronavirus cases rise.
The news of the rescheduling of the ICC's next three global tournaments also means that South Africa's Future Tours Programme is likely to be reworked. They were due to host India for three T20Is in August, but the matches could be played as late as March in order to ensure they take place in the 2020-21 financial year. The fixtures will earn CSA USD 10 million.
