Cricket South Africa’s members council has announced Beresford Williams as its acting president until the annual general meeting next month.
This comes after Chris Nenzani resigned from his position on Monday ahead of the AGM, which will take place on 5 September when the council will vote for a new president.
Williams acted as vice-president of the organisation and will oversee the troubled administrative operation for the time being.
CSA also confirmed the departure of acting CEO Jacques Faul after he surprisingly stepped down from his role hours after Nenzani’s announcement on Monday.
‘Further, the board advises that acting CEO Dr Jacques Faul has decided to end his secondment with immediate effect, which secondment was due to terminate on 15 September 2020. Dr Faul has put in place a detailed transitional plan that will ensure the organisation makes a seamless transition to a new acting CEO, that the board will advise on shortly. The board is forever grateful for the outstanding commitment and leadership that Dr Faul has made and continues to make to CSA and the game of cricket,’ read a statement from the governing body on Tuesday morning.
No candidate has yet been announced to replace Faul in acting capacity as CSA continues to wage war on suspended CEO Thabang Moroe.
