Tamim Iqbal returns to training after 'tough' four months
17 Aug 2020
Cricket South Africa President Chris Nenzani has resigned with immediate effect after a tumultuous year. Serving since 2013, Nenzani completed two three-year terms at the CSA and continued the job for one more year after requests from the top.
The final year proved to be the doom for Nenzani who resigned a month before his term was supposed to end.
In a statement, the CSA thanked the outgoing President for his 'valuable leadership, insight, assistance and direction.'
"Mr. Nenzani has led Cricket South Africa with dedication and astutely since 2013. Mr. Nenzani has provided valuable leadership, insight, assistance and direction in advancing the game of cricket with a focus on achieving transformation and access for the majority of the South African population," the statement read.
Cricket SA have been involved in major controversies over the last year, where the team crashed and burned in the ICC ODI World Cup 2019 and had a horrible year overall.
Under Nenzani's watch, South Africa failed to appoint Graeme Smith as the director of cricket despite agreed deadlines and multiple allegations of institutional racism emerged after the global Black Lives Matter movement.
A new president and chairman will be appointed at the annual general meeting scheduled for September 5.
