Administrative crisis in Cricket South Africa have deepened as Chief Executive Jacques Faul has also tendered his resignation.
CEO Foul has followed president Chris Nenzani to quit the cricket administrative body in South Africa.
CSA had reported yesterday that Nenzani had tendered his resignation. Shortly afterwards, South African media broke the news of Foul’s departure.
Foul is the third departure from CSA’s elite governance in three days since the termination of the Chief Operations Officer Naasei Appiah on Sunday.
Appiah, along with Corrie van Zyl and Clive Eksteen, had been suspended since October last year on charges of dereliction of duty. They were held guilty for non-payment of an agreed contract with the South African Cricketer’s Association.
CSA has called the annual general meeting for September 5 to pick the replacement for Nenzani.
Meanwhile, CSA vice president Beresford Williams has taken the charge as the interim president.
Dr Jacques Faul has decided to end his secondment with immediate effect, which secondment was due to terminate on September 15, CSA stated in a statement.
“Faul has put in place a detail transitional plan that will ensure the organisation makes a seamless transition to a new acting CEO, that the board will advise on shortly. The board is for ever grateful for the outstanding commitment and leadership that Faul has made and continues to make to CSA and the game of cricket,” the statement added.
