Summary

  • Cricket South Africa (CSA) have appointed Thabang Moroe as permanent chief executive on a three-year contract with immediate effect, the governing body announced on Monday.
  • Moroe has been acting chief executive since last September 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.
  • 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.
