• Changes at Eastern Cricket Union

    The outgoing Gary Corin has been succeeded by new Eastern Cricket Union president Peter Vonya on an interim basis.

    And former chief executive officer Cassim Suliman has been replaced by successor Hilton Nortje – also in an interim capacity.

    ‘We would like to take this opportunity of thanking Cassim for his years of service to the union and wish him well in his future endeavours,’ said Vonya.

    ‘I know I can also speak for the ECU board in extending our unequivocal appreciation to Corin for his services to cricket in this region for a considerable period of time.

    ‘I am also delighted to welcome Hilton on board to fill this important position. I have every confidence that we will continue to build the union on an upward trajectory and continue the good work of our predecessors.

    ‘Key emphasis will be placed on a culture of excellence, good governance and a spirit of servanthood.’

    Meanwhile, Cricket South Africa has elected the Central Gauteng Lions’ Jack Madiseng as a non-independent director.

    Madiseng has been president and chairperson of the Central Gauteng Lions (formerly Gauteng Cricket Board) since 2016.

    ‘I am equally excited and nervous about this new responsibility bestowed upon me, and I’m looking forward to contributing towards the success of Cricket SA,’ said Madiseng.
