Minister of Sport Nathi Mthethwa has given the interim Cricket South Africa (CSA) board a one month extension.
The board’s three months term was set to expire in January and it has now been extended to mid-February.
Mthethwa appointed the board in October 2020 and the CSA member council only formally appointed the board a month later thus the extension.
“By all accounts and some initial turbulence, the work of the interim board has gained favour amongst our country’s cricket lovers. Accordingly, I am confident that the extension will enable the interim board to produce a constructive and actionable report that contains the reforms required,” Mthethwa said in a statement.
The interim board is led by Judge Zak Yaqoob as chairperson and might get another extension should it ask Mthethwa to do so.
