Cape Town - The independent panel assigned to review the Proteas’ performance last season has disbanded without completing its work.

It was recently reported that 1995 Rugby World Cup-winning Springbok captain Francois Pienaar would form part of a four-person panel to look into the performances of the country's men’s and women’s teams, who both failed to advance past the first round of the recent ICC World Twenty20s.

The other members of the panel were Adam Bacher, a former South African cricket captain and Ross Tucker, a renowned sports physiologist.

Director and chairperson of the CSA HR Committee, Dawn Mokhobo, was named to lead the panel.

However, according to ESPNcricinfo, the panellists informed CSA CEO Haroon Lorgat of their decision last week.

The investigation was to include an examination of the men's team's poor Test summer, in which they lost back-to-back series' to India and England and the national Under-19 side, who failed to defend their World Cup title.

The job of Proteas coach, Russell Domingo, was also expected to come under particular scrutiny.

The panel held preliminary meetings at the end of April and discussed the scope and the process of their review, which included identifying time-frames and costs.

Tucker explained to a Twitter user why they process was not completed:
