Haroon Lorgat returns to CSA
Former International Cricket Council and Cricket South Africa CEO Haroon Lorgat has made a return to the board as he has been named as one of nine members on the interim CSA board.
The news of Lorgat’s appointment is confirmed on Friday by South Africa’s Arts and Culture Minister Nathi Mthethwa.
Last Sunday, former acting president Beresford Williams and five other board members stepped down from their positions.
Minister Mithethwa ushered hopes in his speech that the new interim team will work towards stabilizing cricket in the country.
‘There was no way that Cricket South Africa was in a position to self-correct,’ he said.
‘I finally decided it was time to intervene. I conceded it advisable to inform, as a matter of curtesy, the ICC of my intended intervention. I also thought that I should give Cricket South Africa yet another opportunity at that point to make representations to me as to why I should not intervene,” he added.
Full Interim Board: Judge Zak Yaqoob (Chairman), Haroon Lorgat, Dr Andre Odendaal, Omphile Ramela, Judith February, Nkeko Caroline Mampuru, Dr Stavros Nikalo, Andile Dawn Mbatha and Xolani Vonya.
A prolific administrator Lorgat resigned from CSA in 2017 ahead of the inaugural T20 Global League.
It can also be added that the Annual General Meeting of Cricket South Africa which has already been postponed up to December 5, will likely to be postponed again.
