SACA Welcomes the Appointment of the New CSA Board
The South African Cricketers’ Association (SACA) today welcomed the appointment of the new Cricket South Africa Board of Directors.
Andrew Breetzke, SACA CEO commented “The past 24-month period has been tumultuous for South African cricket. Our game has suffered immense damage and the appointment of the new Board of Directors has itself been a challenging and complex process. SACA is looking forward to a constructive relationship with the new Board, where the interests of cricket can again be the focus of all stakeholders. In addition to the immediate issues of appointing a new CEO, the financial sustainability of the game and transformation, the new Board must look to regain the confidence of the public, players and stakeholders.”
“We wish to acknowledge the hard work of Minister Nathi Mthetwa and the Ministry of Sport Arts and Culture, the Interim Board and the Members’ Council in concluding this challenging process.”
SACA President, Khaya Zondo, added “Players have been longing for certainty and consistency in the game for the past two years. We are hoping that the appointment of the new Board, with its majority of independent directors, will be the first step in achieving this. Now is the time for all stakeholders to work together to save the game we love.”
