Cricket South Africa CEO Thabang Moroe suspended

On Friday, Thabang Moroe, CSA's CEO, was suspended due to allegations of misconduct, while Standard Bank, whose association with cricket in South Africa dates back to 1998, announced it would not be renewing its title sponsorship of the national team due to "long-standing problems which have damaged Standard Bank's reputation".

"It is abundantly clear that there is no confidence, from any quarter amongst cricket stakeholders, in the CSA Board", Irish said. Khan blamed Moroe for almost all of considerations besetting CSA, together with failing to stay to the terms of an settlement with the SA Cricketers' Association, the banning of 5 journalists final weekend and "traditional bank card abuse".

In his letter to CSA president Chris Nenzani, Khan wrote: "Unfortunately, all fingers point at the CEO". Khan's resignation came a day after that of Shirley Zinn, leaving CSA with only three of their five independent directors.

CSA's director of cricket position, meanwhile, has not yet been filled a mere three weeks prior to the Proteas' Test series against England.

An ECB spokesperson told ESPNcricinfo that the board was keeping a "watching brief" on developments in South Africa, but added that they were not concerned about the existing arrangements at this stage.

Other issues include that interim director of cricket Corrie van Zyl, commercial manager Clive Eksteen and COO Naasei Appiah were immediately suspended, believed to be in connection to a payment dispute with players in last year's Mzansi Super League.

England travel to South Africa on 13 December for a four-match Test series. That tour was the first outing for the new team director, Enoch Nkwe, whose role was created after Ottis Gibson stood down as head coach following the team's disappointing showing at this year's World Cup.

The passes were later reinstated, but the South African Cricketers' Association (SACA) has since called on Moroe and the CSA board to resign.

In a separate interview with an Afrikaans-language internet establish, Bacher said, "We're now the shaggy dog story of world cricket". "I don't want us to end up like the West Indies, who were once a mighty cricket nation but have just disappeared over the last decade or two".

It was confirmed that CSA board members Jack Madiseng and Jono Leaf-Wright were to speak tonight but only Leaf-Wright was in attendance, including representatives of many local cricket clubs. In an email to Nenzani and CSA deputy president Beresford Williams, Madiseng accused the pair of a lack of leadership.

Now, CSA has also lost its only major team sponsor after deals with Sunfoil and Momentum ended past year.
