The South African government has appointed an interim nine-member board to run the CSA. It will be run by Judge Zak Yaqoob and it includes former CSA chief Haroon Lorgat, according to reports in the South African media.

It also has Andre Odendaal, who is the former Western Province and Cape Cobras chief executive. Omphile Ramela, Stavros Nikalo, Judith February, Andile Dawn Mbatha, Xolani Vonya and Nkeko Caroline Mampuru are the other members.

Earlier, entire Cricket South African board has resigned on Monday. Acting President Beresford Williams and five others had earlier stepped down from their respective positions from the CSA according to a Cricbuzz report.

CSA tweeted: “After the members council had deliberated and resolved that in order to best serve the interest of cricket in South Africa, the entire board should resign – which they did. All independent and non-independent directors have now resigned.”

Dharmalingham, who chaired the finance committee and first tendered his resignation on Friday, is the only non-independent board member who quit on Sunday. “I wish and hope that CSA finds peace in the coming months and cricket takes centre stage,” CSA quoted Dharmalingham as saying on its twitter account.

What is known is that the domestic season will start on November 2, and that England’s men’s team will arrive next month to play three ODIs and three T20Is.
