CSA Members’ Council Approves New Governance Structure

The governance of cricket in South Africa may be moving towards some semblance of stability after Cricket South Africa’s Members’ Council accepted the principle of a majority independent board for the body.

CSA’s interim board welcomed the decision, which paves the way for the formal amendment of CSA’s Memorandum of Incorporation and sets cricket administration on a new governance path.   

Interim Board Chair, Dr Stavros Nicolaou, said: “This is a landmark moment for South African cricket administration.  It lays a solid foundation for transparent and sound governance in the future. It is nine years since the Nicholson Report recommended a majority independent board and the moment has finally been seized to make a clean break with the past. It is a step in the direction of transparent, innovative and best practice governance for cricket. A new board, comprised of individuals with a balance of skill, cricketing knowledge and the ability to ensure accountability, is required to administer the modern game. It is hoped, too, that this new governance structure will lay a foundation for on-field success and restore public faith in the administration of the game.”

The interim board will now finalise the technicalities related to the amendment of the MOI and set a date for CSA’s long-overdue 2020 AGM.
