Madiseng to serve on the CSA board

2019-02-05 17:05

Cape Town - Central Gauteng Lions (CGL) Cricket President and Chairperson of the Board, Jack Madiseng, was elected as a Non-Independent Director to serve on the Cricket South Africa Board (CSA) following CSA's Members Council Special AGM over the past weekend in Cape Town.

Madiseng has been President and Chairperson of the Board of the Central Gauteng Lions (former Gauteng Cricket Board) since he was elected into that position in 2016. Before that, he was one of the representatives from the Black African constituency serving on the Board.

In cricket, Madiseng also holds leadership positions as the Chairperson of the Gauteng Cricket Council - a body that speaks as one voice on cricket matters relating to the Gauteng Province. He is also the Board Chairperson of the Highveld Lions franchise and sits on the CSA Members Council.

In his capacity as Chairperson, Madiseng was instrumental in assertively driving the transformation of the Board of CGL including the increase in gender equality and presence at Board and Sub-Committee level. CGL and the Lions' latest turnaround strategy since the start of the 2018/19 season, has already started bearing fruits.

CGL and the Lions have claimed victory in the following recent tournaments:

*In September 2018, Central Gauteng Lions won the Africa T20 Cup for the first time since the competition commenced.

*The Inaugural Mzansi Super League (MSL) T20 with the Jozi Stars being crowned champions in December 2018

*Set the record by becoming the first province to successfully defend the Khaya Majola U/19 Week competition in December 2018

*The Highveld Lions being the champions of the recently concluded 4-Day Domestic Series competition that finished last week.

*The Strikers, the CGL Semi-Professional squad, are currently comfortably lying in the 1st position on the CSA Provincial 3-Day competition log.

"I am equally excited and nervous about this new responsibility bestowed upon me and I'm looking forward to contributing towards the success of Cricket SA," said Madiseng.
