Johannesburg, Mar 11(ANI): Cricket South Africa (CSA) must adopt the Nicholson inquiry recommendations with immediate effect to restore stakeholder and public confidence in the administration of the game, a cricketers' body has suggested.
"The players have been patient throughout a long and unhappy period of instability but now that there are clear recommendations we expect the CSA Board to act immediately and decisively," Sport 24 quoted SA Cricketers' Association (Saca) Chief Executive Tony Irish's statement as saying.
"We want the administration of the game in the best hands and, at the heart of that process is getting the composition of the Board of Directors right," he added.
"We are of the view that the changes, initiated in New Zealand and continued in Australia and the ICC, with regard to amending the constitution of CSA, so as to elect a smaller board, with a majority of independent, professionally skilled, non-executive directors, ought to be effected in South Africa," states Paragraph 357 of the Nicholson inquiry's conclusion.
Irish said the players want the restructuring to take place as soon as possible.
"The appointment of suitable directors cannot happen overnight, but the process should start immediately. We believe that is the most important recommendation of the inquiry," he added. (ANI)
