South Africa government asks CSA board to step down

Cricket South Africa’s board and senior executives including acting CEO Kugandrie Govender have been instructed to step aside by the South African Sports Conferation and Olympic Committee (SASCOC), which will appoint a task team to conduct an investigation into the affairs at CSA. The team will make findings and recommendations to SASCOC and CSA’s Members’ Council within one month.

SASCOC, which is the controlling body for all high performance sport in South Africa, took the decision unanimously at a board meeting on Tuesday because of what it said are “the many instances of maladministration and malpractice,” at CSA which “has brought cricket into disrepute.”

Whether SASCOC’s action constitutes government interference that goes against the ICC’s code of conduct is yet to be determined. The ICC have already received one complaint against CSA from the Institute for Race Relations who took issue with CSA’s affirmative action hiring policy.
