Awaiting the result of the malpractice investigation, South African Government

Awaiting the result of the malpractice investigation, South African Government allegedly took charge of the South African cricket board (CSA). Infringing the regulations of the ICC WORLD CUP on government intervention resulting in Cricket South Africa thrown out from the international stage.


According to the letters from the South African Sports Confederation and the Olympic Committee (SASCOC) to the CSA, “the CSA board and those senior executives who serve ex-officio on the board (the company secretary, the acting CEO, the CFO, and the COO) are directed to step aside from the administration of CSA on full pay” awaiting the results of a month-long inquiry by the task forces on what SASCOC named “many instances of maladministration and malpractice that have occurred since at least December 2019.”


"This has manifestly caused great concern and consternation amongst your 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."


"SASCOC has attempted to address these issues in two meetings with the CSA board: one was exploratory, and the other failed to take place mainly because CSA failed to make the... forensic report available to the SASCOC board despite promises and undertakings by CSA to do so. CSA receives our letter which records that the board's decision to make the said report available only on a limited basis to the president and board members of SASCOC, is wholly unreasonable and irrational given the apparent nature and scope of the report."
