Johannesburg - A meeting between Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula and the Cricket SA (CSA) board adjourned after nearly two hours of discussion behind closed doors in Johannesburg on Thursday.

CSA spokesperson Michael Owen-Smith said the media would be briefed after an official statement was drawn up.

Mbalula was to decide whether CSA had taken appropriate action in response to a ministerial inquiry into its finances following a lengthy bonus scandal.

The CSA board said last month it had accepted, in principle, the recommendations made by the inquiry, chaired by retired judge Chris Nicholson.

Bonuses amounting to R4.7 million were paid to CSA staff after the federation hosted the 2009 Indian Premier League, but the payments were not cleared by the board or CSA remuneration committee.
