Cricket South Africa (CSA) have confirmed more resignations of the board members, a day after the departure of half a dozen board members.
CSA bid farewell to its acting president, Beresford Williams with five members of its board also stepping down.
After a meeting on Friday, the CSA board and the Member’s Council decided that the board members will step down if that will be to the best interest of the sport.
“After the Members’ Council had deliberated and resolved that in order to best serve the interest of cricket in South Africa, the entire Board should resign – which they did. All Independent and Non-Independent Directors have now resigned,” CSA confirmed in a statement on Twitter.
“The Members’ Council thanks every member who diligently served on the Board and selflessly sacrificed their time for extended and often, overwhelming periods, to assist Cricket South Africa.”
This announcement was made less than 24 hours before a deadline given to CSA by Sports Minister Nathi Mthethwa.
CSA was told by the sports minister to provide reasons why he should not intervene with the problems in the sport.
Such intervention could have resulted in action from the International Cricket Council (ICC), which is against any government interference in the sport.
Independent and non-independent directors are the latest members to resign.
In 2019, Zimbabwe was suspended from international competition, following an intervention from the country’s government, which replaced its cricket board with an interim committee.
