Cricket South Africa (CSA) on Wednesday appointed Kugandrie Govender as interim Chief Executive Officer of CSA, with immediate effect.

This is followed by the abrupt resignation of the prior acting CEO Dr Jacques Faul, who on Tuesday that is 17th August, resigned from the position, leaving it vacant.

“We are pleased to announce Kugandrie Govender’s appointment as Acting Chief Executive of CSA. She is a multifaceted executive leader with more than 23 years’ experience in the corporate sector and currently holding the position of Chief Commercial Officer at Cricket South Africa,” acting president of CSA’s Board of Directors, Beresford Williams said in an official release.



So now along with Acting President of CSA Board, South African cricket will be led by Acting CEO as well.
Govender who is the first female to serve in the role of CSA CEO, further added that CSA’s mandate is to ensure that cricket is an inclusive sporting code for all South Africans and her prime focus will on refining the ‘reputation both locally and internationally’

“CSA’s mandate is to ensure that cricket is an inclusive sporting code for all South Africans. It is important to improve our reputation both locally and internationally. This is a critical time for our organisation and crucial for key stakeholders to work together to improve the rating of cricket among those who love, support, and follow the sport and those who have trust in the sport’s ability to unify all South Africans,” Govender said.

“We will work hard to improve the levels of pride amongst our stakeholders and I am humbled to be a part of the collective that commits itself to ensure that CSA is a federation of which South Africans are proud,” she added.

Govender is now, officially, in charge of that narrative. Some will say she has the opportunity of a lifetime, others that she has taken a step further into the centre of a snake pit. Snake or saviour? All of the South African cricket, and at least some of the game beyond, is watching and waiting for an answer.
