Former boss Lorgat named to Cricket South Africa interim board
Johannesburg: Former Cricket South Africa (CSA) chief executive Haroon Lorgat was included Friday in a nine-man interim board tasked with restoring the image of the scandal-tainted organisation.
The 60-year-old ex-ICC chief executive led South African cricket for four years from 2013 before departing after a breakdown in his relationship with the national body.
Recent administrative crises led to the entire board resigning by Monday this week and the nine replacements headed by a judge, Zak Yaqoob, have been given a three-month tenure. Former chief executive Thabang Moroe was blamed for much of the CSA mismanagement and, after being suspended last December, was sacked two months ago.
Before his suspension, Moroe alienated the national cricketers' association and banned five journalists who had been critical of his decisions.
Later, one member of the former board splashed 520,000 rand ($32,000/27,000 euros) on a full-page newspaper advert without authority even though the CSA is heavily in debt. - AFP
