Cape Town - The Gauteng Cricket Board (GCB) this past week grieved the passing of Lennox Mlonzi, Honorary Life Vice-President, at the age of 84.

Lennox recently played a vital role in the consultation process in the drafting of the proposed new constitution of the GCB after a lifetime of dedication to the sport, both as administrator and player.

Lennox served on the South African Black Cricket Council as Secretary-General from 1958 until unity talks started in the late 1980s.

He was elected as Honorary Life Vice-President of the GCB in 2010.

“Lennox was a real gentleman who often watched matches at the stadium and his friendly face will definitely be missed in the Long Room,” commented Faizel Sallie, Acting President of the GCB.

“Not only was he a contributor to the community through the church where he was a pastor, but also in cricket circles where he was a respected, enthusiastic and unassuming individual.

“He served the game loyally and had a tremendous knowledge of cricket,” said Faizel Sallie, Acting President of the GCB.

Cricket South Africa Acting CEO Jacques Faul commented: “It is a sad loss. He was a man who lived the game with passion and did so much for cricket for much of his life. On behalf of the CSA Family I extend our condolences to his family and friends.”
