CSA to win back public trust

2012-03-10 13:09

Johannesburg - Cricket SA (CSA) must adopt the recommendations of the Nicholson inquiry as a matter of urgency in order to restore stakeholder and public confidence in the administration of the game, the SA Cricketers' Association (Saca) said on Saturday.

"The players have been patient throughout a long and unhappy period of instability but now that there are clear recommendations we expect the CSA Board to act immediately and decisively," Saca chief executive Tony Irish said in a statement.

"We want the administration of the game in the best hands and, at the heart of that process is getting the composition of the Board of Directors right."

Paragraph 357 of the Nicholson inquiry's conclusion states: "We are of the view that the changes, initiated in New Zealand and continued in Australia and the ICC, with regard to amending the constitution of CSA, so as to elect a smaller board, with a majority of independent, professionally skilled, non-executive directors, ought to be effected in South Africa."

Irish said the players wanted the restructuring to happen as soon as possible.

"The appointment of suitable directors cannot happen overnight, but the process should start immediately," said Irish.

"We believe that is the most important recommendation of the inquiry."

    Step No 1. Fire Majola.

      Carlos - 2012-03-10 13:54

      Step No 2. Ensure he stays fired from all Sports and Business Executive positions

      Fire the board, including Majola , then bring criminal charges against them, same process as Malema, these crooks belong in Jail, just as Vavi says.

      No step 1, get rid of joker Smith and a couple of other chokers.

      @Carel. Smith 53 first innings, 115 second innings. Oh yes fire the useless SOB. Moron!

    The sooner the whole board of CSA is fired,they must all have had some idea of what was happening,the better. All the monies that was earned whilst these crooks were in charge,should be repaid. Once all this has taken place,those guilty of giving themselves these big bonuses and salary increases,should face the full might of the law.

    If suitable capable people had been appointed in the first place, who put the sport first instead of their pockets, none of this would have been necessary
