CSA sign Nicholson report deal

Johannesburg - Cricket South Africa (CSA) signed an agreement with the government on Friday to further implement the recommendations of the Nicholson inquiry.

Acting CSA president Willie Basson and Alec Moemi, the director-general of sport, signed the document in Pretoria after Basson was given a majority mandate by his board.

"It was important that we formalise the process," Basson said in a statement by CSA and the sports ministry.

"Although we are well advanced in carrying out the commitment made to the minister (of sport and recreation) following the publishing of the Nicholson report, it was necessary to formalise the process on the basis of an MOA (memorandum of understanding).

"If anything, I would say that we are on schedule on the targets we have set ourselves and that is a heartening aspect."

The steering committee tasked with improving CSA's governance processes had already made significant progress. The next milestone was the appointment of an independent nominations committee to deal with the restructuring of CSA's board.

The Nicholson inquiry recommended the CSA board be reduced in size, comprising a majority of independent, professionally skilled, non-executive directors, following in the footsteps of cricket boards in Australia and New Zealand.

Not all the 11 affiliates voted in favour of the MOA, but Basson was confident he had the board's support. He said they had already made great strides and this was just one more step in the right direction.

"It would be unfair to name those who did not give their consent, but a very high percentage were in favour of the MOA.

"Each affiliate engaged their own boards and the other constituents in their areas and the vast majority were in agreement."
