CSA needs 'power revamp'

2011-11-28 20:33

Pretoria - SA Cricketers' Association CEO Tony Irish made a submission to a committee of inquiry into Cricket SA's (CSA) affairs in which he called for a better corporate governance structure in CSA.

"We believe cricket sorely needs a restoration of stakeholder confidence and public confidence," Irish said.

"One of the ways in which this could be achieved is by having a proper independent expert review of the corporate governance structure with particular focus on the board of directors."

Irish said CSA should follow the precedent set by the International Cricket Council, which recently resolved to review its governance structure.

He said the current structure of CSA did not make for easy decision-making, perpetuated the crisis in the organisation and allowed the politicisation of the board.

"Whatever structure is then recommended as being appropriate for the organisation, we then believe the board should be required to implement those recommendations," Irish said.

"We as the players and stakeholders in the game hope that it is one of the outcomes of this committee," he said.

    They need more than that, they need a completely clean sweep, that includes most of the provincial cricket as well.

      They need to start appointing competent managers and not AA thieves.

    The easy way out for corrupt administrators (Current and Past)?

      Before looking at new structures, get rid of the thieves. Simple!

    Seems like CSA are killing the goose that laid the golden egg - exactly the same thing happened to Athletics SA. Seems like there's an over-supply dumb tabs going around - and they are working BIG TIME!

    The culture of entitlement, the cult of the gravy train, the desolation after the locust swarm, political pomposity, the march of the ignorant-such is the leadership of Africa. Why are we always so disappointed with the children? Were we not warned?

    YES,get rid of the lot especially those who received bonuses for doing nothing else but being crooks and put Majola top of the list. Why should any of them be on the board of CSA if they steal the money of sponsers which should be plowed back into cricket. This is the problem in all our sport,these people are there to fill there own pockets because they feel entitled to be compensated for their time They receive so many perks but stiill they steal more.
