CSA 'holds moral highground'

Johannesburg - An advisory award for Cricket SA (CSA) indicated that the disciplinary hearing against suspended chief executive Gerald Majola would likely go in its favour, it was reported on Saturday.

The Saturday Star reported that Advocate Johann Myburgh SC, chairman of the disciplinary hearing, provided the award, which implied that he would likely rule against Majola if the case continued.

Mojola, however, wants the process to continue.

CSA acting president Willie Basson told the newspaper that the body now "hold[s] the moral highground."

CSA acting chief executive Jacques Faul stressed Myburgh's findings were not binding.

"The advisory award only gives an indication, and it gives both parties an opportunity to decide whether to withdraw or to go ahead with the full hearing," he said.

"Majola could have resigned, but he has chosen to go ahead and continue with the legal process."

Faul said on Friday he had the backing of the CSA board after he rescinded his resignation.

He initially tendered his resignation last week, citing differences in opinion regarding the roles and responsibilities of the board.

Faul took office after Majola was suspended in March for failing to declare R4.7m in bonuses, which were paid to CSA staff without clearance from the board or the remuneration committee.
