There is an argument that those members of the 2013 cricket team who played in all the test matches and all the one day internationals will notbe taxed on their match fees or any other earnings from the tours (including ‘Man of the Match' awards and a portion of their salary from the cricket board) whist they were outside the Republic. But what of the earnings of those members of the team who wereonly selected for a few test matches and one day internationals (perhaps in only onecountry) but stayed with the team for the three tours during 2013? Furthermore, what ofthe earnings of those members of the team who accompanied the team on all three toursbut never played a game ?

It would all depend on their contracts, the definition of "playing," their exact dates of being outside of SA, how they are paid. It is a very complex answer. Why do you require it?

I am working on a study unit for Unisa. According the question, the players spend 270 days outside of the Republic of South Africa - the only info I received.

I would say that a Protea player signed a contract with SA Cricket which will spell out the domestic and international games as part of their service. ?
or
Must I apply a10(1)(o)(ii) for this question. ?

Thanks

If their contract keeps them outside of SA for the 10(1)(o)(ii) requirements and they have an equal chance of being selected and are still paid for their services than the exemption will apply. Effectively they are like any employee working overseas.
