Summary

  • Cricket South Africa have appointed Thabang Moroe as permanent chief executive on a three-year contract with immediate effect, the governing body has announced.
  • Moroe has been acting chief executive since September last year when Haroon Lorgat left by mutual consent after a breakdown in his relationship with the organisation’s board over the setting up of South Africa’s T20 Global League.
  • “Mr Moroe has done an excellent job over the past year in taking over this position in circumstances that were far from ideal,” CSA President Chris Nenzani said on the CSA website.
  • Lorgat’s departure came weeks before the proposed start of South Africa’s new T20 league, a six-week tournament due to feature eight teams, which he was responsible for organising.
  • In October the CSA said the T20 league, set to run from November 3 to December 16, would be postponed for a year because the failure to secure a suitable broadcast package and title sponsor meant the governing body stood to lose about $US25 million ($NZ36 million).
