Cape Town – The Central Gauteng Lions Cricket Board (CGL) has called for the removal of Cricket South Africa (CSA) CEO Thabang Moro and the entire board.
The decision comes after a meeting with the CGL board in Wanderers on Thursday evening, with a unanimous decision that Morrow and the CSA board resign and an interim board and management team be immediately replaced.
CGL also recommended that a forensic audit be conducted at CSA.
It has been a disastrous week for Morrow and CSA.
The ongoing legal battle with the South African Cricketers Association (SACA), the suspension of senior officials Clive Ekstein, Corey van Ziel and Nasi Appiah, led the association under administration, without losing any arbitration hearing against the Western Province Cricket Association.
Things reached a boiling point over the weekend when Morrow and CSA revoked the recognition of five local cricket journalists as to how they were covering the events taking place in the organization.
That decision was overturned 24 hours later, but it aired criticism from all sponsors, with major sponsor Standard Bank expressing its “grave concern” over the administration of the CSA.
Since then, former CSA (formerly UCB) owners Norman Arcade, Ali Bacher and Aaron Lorgat have all publicly criticized the current regime.
According to an IOL report on Thursday, the proposals have been supported by seven other provinces; Western Province, KwaZulu Natal, South Western District, North West, Limpopo, Northern Cape, Eastern Province.
The statement said, “The CGL board is proud of stable corporate governance, both past and present, and has always been at the forefront and forefront of the game of cricket, applied both on and off the field. ” Read.
“The CGL board concluded with a united voice that the above three phases need to be completed immediately to serve the best game of cricket in South Africa.”
“We are confident with the change as a board that hope will be created, and faith will be restored to the beautiful game of cricket that we are proudly aware of in South African love.”
