Johannesburg - CSA have clarified their position, via a media statement released on Tuesday, on its CEO, Haroon Lorgat, following media reports suggesting he has been suspended.

"CSA wishes to clarify the position of its chief executive, Haroon Lorgat, following erroneous comments that have appeared in the media today.

"As stated in the joint media release by CSA and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), Lorgat has been withdrawn by CSA from representing it at the ICC’s chief executive’s committee (or from acting in any other ICC-related matters), and from having involvement in any aspect of CSA’s relationship with the BCCI, including but not limited to the upcoming tour.

"The withdrawal of the chief executive relates only to the allegations contained in the Becker article.

"Lorgat remains chief executive of CSA and is responsible for all other areas of its operations.

CSA chairperson, Chris Nenzani reiterated their stance.

"I would like to stress that Mr. Lorgat has not been suspended," Nenzani said.

"In fact, he himself volunteered to withdraw from matters involving the ICC and the BCCI in his deliberations with the full board at their meeting last Sunday."
