South African cricketers ‘angry’ with latest setback in appointment of new CSA board

South African cricketers ‘angry’ with latest setback in appointment of new CSA board Johannesburg, Oct 26 : The South Africa Cricketers'' Association (SACA) chief executive, Tony Irish has claimed players are angry with the latest setback in the appointment of a new Cricket South Africa (CSA) board, apparently due to political reasons.

"Our cricketers have been patient through all of the problems and have given Cricket SA [CSA] their support and a fair opportunity to fix things,"Sports24 quoted Irish, as saying.

"Now, quite frankly, they are angry with this setback for what appears to be ''political'' reasons," he added.

CSA was to vote in a new board of 11 members at its annual general meeting (AGM) on Saturday.

It has already appointed five independent directors and said the other six would consist of five affiliates and a CSA chief executive.

Last week, however, the SA Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (SASCOC) raised an objection to the board structure, claiming it was contrary to SASCOC''s membership requirements.

CSA has since postponed its AGM to November 30, by which time it was hoped the matter would be resolved. (ANI)
