South African government on Thursday suspended Cricket South Africa (CSA) over the charges of mal-administration of the board.
This move within the country could also lead the South African team getting banned from the ICC’s list of cricket playing nations. Cricket South Africa has been going through turbulence after resignation from Jacques Faul and Chris Nenzani.
South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (SASCOC) wrote a letter to the CSA asking all the board members and senior executives (the company secretary, the acting CEO, the CFO and the COO) to step down. All the board members from top to the bottom level of administration stepped down from CSA with a full pay.
They will launch a month-long investigation for all the malfunction that took place within the administration from December 2019.
The letter stated: “This has manifestly caused great concern and consternation amongst your own members, former and current members of the national team of the Proteas, stakeholders, sponsors, and members of the cricket-loving public. “
“There can be no doubt that this has caused cricket to lose the trust and confidence of members of the public, stakeholders, sponsors and the players represented by SACA (the South African Cricketers’ Association). All this has brought cricket into disrepute.”
Both CSA and the ICC haven’t responded to the decision taken by the SASCOC for the country’s apex cricket body.
