  • The Northerns Cricket Union has asked for a national convention to take place to sort out Cricket South Africa's administrative issues.
  • CSA's members' council and the interim board again reached an impasse with regards to the appointment of a majority independent board at Saturday's Special General Meeting
  • Central Gauteng Lions, Mpumalanga and North-West are three of the six affiliates who voted for amendments to the Memorandum of Incorporation to allow for a majority independent board.

The Northerns Cricket Union (NCU) have appealed to the the cricket fraternity's warring parties to come together to find a resolution for the sake of the game in the country.

The NCU, under the stewardship of Tebogo Siko, have taken a step further by calling for a national convention to be hosted by an independent facilitator in order to find middle ground with regards to the administrative checkmate Cricket South Africa has found itself in.

The NCU, according to their statement, had a mandate "that makes provision for a majority independent board and independent Chairperson."

CGL, North-West and Mpumalanga, who all released statements in support of a majority independent board, are three of the six affiliates who voted affirmatively for amendments to the Memorandum of Incorporation to pave the way for a majority independent board.

This took place at Saturday's Special General Meeting which was attended by all 14 unions, the South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (Sascoc) and the Sports Ministry.

In a statement, the NCU has pleaded with the factions to come to a settlement that'll serve the interests of cricket in SA.

On Tuesday, CGL president Anne Vilas said the union was disappointed in how the voting for the MoI amendments panned out.
