William Beresford will be the acting President of CSA (Cricket South Africa). This news comes after Chris NEnzani stepped down as the President and Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Cricket South Africa yesterday.
William Beresford, the man who is in the business of cricket administration from the past 25 years, before joining the CSA he was the President of Western Province Cricket Association. In the year of 2018, he won an election to be a part of CSA against Jack Madiseng of Gauteng with a margin of 8-6.
Acting chief executive Jacques Faul also resigned from his position after Nenzani’s exit. Now the CSA has to deal with two resignations. Both Faul and Nenzani had a significant impact on the CSA board panel.
In a press release, CSA said, “Dr. Faul has put in place a detail transitional plan that will ensure the organization makes a seamless transition to a new acting CEO, that the board will advise on shortly. The board is forever grateful for the outstanding commitment and leadership that Dr. Faul has made and continues to make to CSA and the game of cricket,”
Nenzani stepped down from his position 3 weeks before his term was due to end. CSA released a statement on this stating, “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.”
“Given what has happened over the last nine months, the president owes stakeholders an explanation for why he is stepping down now,” Andrew Breetzke, SACA CEO, told ESPNcricinfo.
The resignation in CSA for the two most powerful position created a turmoil in the association. While the other cricket boards are working on resuming cricket, CSA is still struggling within the board.
