Mali: No void left on CSA board

Johannesburg - The resignation of interim chairman and administrator of the Gauteng Cricket Board (GCB), Ray Mali, did not leave a void on the Cricket SA (CSA) board, he said on Monday.

"We have young guys who we have here who can fit into my shoes," Mali said.

"It cannot be vacant as there should be someone who will represent the interim board members. It has been done in the past when a president is not available and someone will represent a board."

The former CSA president resigned at the quarterly board meeting in Johannesburg on Friday, but CSA made no mention of Mali's resignation at a media briefing afterwards, or in a subsequent statement.

While Mali would no longer sit on the CSA board as the GCB's representative, he said he would continue in his role as the provincial union's chairman until his term expired on August 31.

"My role here is to try and empower people to take up responsible posts in Cricket South Africa," Mali said.

"I'm doing exactly that and getting new leadership to take cricket forward.

"It is not a matter of urgency [to elect a GCB representative] as CSA has one or two meetings before the AGM, and by then we should have elected a president of the GCB."

Mali said he had considered stepping down from the CSA board as early as 2010, but the federation's leadership stopped him from doing so.

He was appointed GCB administrator of the interim board following a commission of inquiry into the provincial cricket union's affairs in 2010.

Mali said the GCB would elect his replacement at their AGM in July or August, which would be in time for CSA's annual general meeting.

His resignation followed those of former acting CSA president AK Khan and audit and risk committee chairman John Blair at a management committee meeting last month.
