After a lot of mud-slinging, government intervention and some wise decision making later, Cricket South Africa have for the first time appointed an independent Chairperson of the Board. Along with that, Steven Budlender has been appointed as the lead independent director.
Naidoo, a lawyer by profession has had an illustrious career in government and politics and is currently the executive secretary of the Council for the Advancement of the South African Constitution.
"We are all well aware of the challenges facing us in making CSA a world-class sporting organisation both on and off the field of play," Naidoo was quoted as saying in the CSA official release post his appointment.
After the country’s thunderous victory in the Test series against West Indies, CSA is now committed to winning back the trust of the stakeholders, including the sponsors. "The board agreed to focus their first 100 days in office on bringing stability to the organisation and embarking on an engagement programme to gain input from stakeholders as it seeks to align everyone towards a shared vision for the future.”
