New Cricket SA board strives to regain public trust


The newly-appointed Cricket South Africa (CSA) interim board says it will do everything to see to it that those responsible of the turmoil within the organisation are brought to book.

All members of the previous board stepped down in late October before Sports Minister Nathi Mthethwa announced a new delegation that will take over.

New board gets to work

The recently-appointed group has a host of tasks on its table, which include cleaning the organisation of the organisation, as well as dealing with governance issues.

In a statement issued out by CSA, board member Judith February said taking immediate action is paramount.

“We will do everything possible to ensure that those responsible for misdeeds and bringing the game and the organisation into disrepute, are held to account. The new board also looks forward to working shoulder-to-shoulder with CSA’s dedicated employees who have never lost sight of the organisation’s mandate to develop and uplift cricket. Taking immediate action is paramount to the progress of the game as we enter a busy cricketing season.”
