Cricket South Africa: Entire board steps down


Cricket South Africa (CSA) confirmed more resignations on Monday, just a day after the departure of half a dozen board members.

The embattled organisation bid farewell to its acting president, Beresford Williams on Saturday, with five more members of its board also stepping down.

Member’s Council steps down

This was after a meeting held on Friday by the CSA board and the Member’s Council, where it was decided that, should it be deemed in the best interest of the sport, board members would have to step down.

“After the Members’ Council had deliberated and resolved that in order to best serve the interest of cricket in South Africa, the entire Board should resign – which they did. All Independent and Non-Independent Directors have now resigned,” CSA confirmed in a statement on Twitter.

“The Members’ Council thanks every member who diligently served on the Board and selflessly sacrificed their time for extended and often, overwhelming periods, to assist Cricket South Africa.”

The latest members to resign include independent and non-independent directors.

Overhaul looms at Cricket South Africa

The announcement was made less than 24 hours before a deadline given to CSA by Sports Minister Nathi Mthethwa.

The organisation was instructed by the sports minister to provide reasons why he should not intervene, amid the ongoing turmoil.

Such intervention could have resulted in action from the International Cricket Council (ICC), which is against any government interference in the sport.

In 2019, Zimbabwe was suspended from international competition, following an intervention from the country’s government, which replaced its cricket board with an interim committee. Protection Status
