Cape Town - Cricket South Africa CEO Gerald Majola is preparing himself for the biggest innings of his life.

Majola will ask his employers on Wednesday, March 14 for a three-month leave of absence so that he can prepare himself to defend his integrity, reputation and career.

CSA’s management committee will meet on Wednesday at which meeting Majola’s request will be tabled.

Majola was severely criticised by Judge Chris Nicholson in his report released last week. The Judge conducted a four-month investigation into CSA, as well as Majola’s receipt of a R1.7 million bonus following the Indian Premier League tournament and Champions Trophy competition held in South Africa in 2009. 

Majola repaid the bonus, but the CSA Board returned it to him after an investigation.

Since the publication of the Nicholson report, Majola has kept out of the media spotlight. He is studying the report and will only comment after discussions with his lawyers and advisors. 

His legal advisor has already picked some inconsistencies in the report and he is concerned about the credibility of Judge Nicholson’s findings.

Majola is also concerned about Judge Nicholson’s impartiality and was suspicious that he was a victim of a hatchet job.
