Beresford Williams, the acting president of Cricket South Africa (CSA) stepped down from the board along with five other members on Sunday.
His resignation comes just two months after he took over as the acting president on August 18, following the distraught departure of Chris Nenzani and Jacques Faul.
This is also the first time the board has seen so many resignations at one go, after the constant pressure from the stakeholders. This comes two days before the country’s government is due to take a call on their involvement in the development of the game.
Five other members who walked out of the board alongside Williams are Angelo Carolissen, Donovan May, Tebogo Siko, John Mogodi and Dheven Dharmalingham.
Rihan Richards, president of the Northern Cape Cricket has been instated as the interim president of the members council.
The administration of the CSA has been turbulent from the last 12 months, especially after the allegations on Chris Nenzani on corruption charges. Nenzani stepped down from his position after serving for 7 years, followed by the resignation of Dr. Jacques Faul.
Dheven Dharmalingham, who headed the finance committee of the organisation had filed his resignation on Friday.
“I wish and hope that CSA finds peace in the coming months and cricket takes centre stage,” Dharmalingham told on CSA’s official Twitter account.
CSA has been in the headlines for all the negative developments happening within the board. Peace is what the organisation is seeking from the last few months.
