JOHANNESBURG - Cricket South Africa (CSA) CEO Haroon Lorgat has told EWNSport he is satisfied with the proposals put forward by the International Cricket Council (ICC), which will effectively see India, Australia and England take control of world cricket.

Having had talks with all the parties concerned, Lorgat says CSA is confident the deal will help move the game forward.

"The initial proposals were ones that we weren't satisfied with, and we weren't prepared to accept them. We engaged with various people, we started to work, and we have arrived at an arrangement we are satisfied with, for now."

Lorgat has also refused to confirm reports that this year's edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) could be held in South Africa due to the possibility of elections in India.

Lorgat says having had experience in hosting the tournament before, he is confident South Africa can do a good job should the need arise.

"It's still early days to speculate. There are always reports coming out. Of course we would be willing, and we've done it before. We want to restore our relationship with India, and I think we've gone a long way over the last couple of weeks and months. If the official request were to come through, we would certainly consider it."
