Mayday call for Cricket SA hierarchy and the ICC

No, this is not a call for personal help although it could be for those connected to the hierarchy of Cricket SA and future World Cup policy-makers of the ICC.

It is hoped that clear, lucid sense prevails during May as the battle between Cricket SA, with Gerald Majola at then helm, and Mtutuzeli Nyoka continues.

The maintenance of ethics and service to the entire cricketing community should be at the forefront of their agenda – after all that is why presidents get elected into office, lest they forget.

This past week I received a number of emails pertaining to this Cricket SA saga of the undeclared R68 million.

One elaborate mail from a good friend in high places, informs that in fact it seems that the amount is actually more than R100 million!

If so, it makes the continued presence of certain men in office untenable as lack of integrity and honesty cannot be accepted.

The fact that CSA entertained an internal audit as opposed to an external audit as originally proposed by an authentic independently elected committee by CSA, suggests that certain irregularities regarding staff bonus payments might be the cover-up in the attempted ousting of Nyoka.

Could it be fear of exposure of dishonesty that is driving the majority of ‘The President’s men’ to such extreme measures?

Nyoka is certainly displaying the strength and stubbornness of the bull in his quest for the truth.
Border and the Northern Titans provinces are to be commended in their stance and support of Nyoka’s re-instatement as president of CSA as they were the only two provinces who voted against the initial toppling of Nyoka.

If the High Court indeed proves that Nyoka was unlawfully toppled, surely Border and Northerns would have contributed to good ethics and hopefully stand them in good stead in a newly elected CSA executive later in the year.

The ICC have also appeared to make hasty decisions regarding the format of the 2015 World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.

The ‘loftiness’ of their insight to limit it to only the 10 Test-playing nations is clouded in financial mist, their vision and ‘feel’ for the global game having become blurred.

Thankfully the ‘Associate’ countries, led by Ireland and the support of its government, have forced the ICC to rethink the matter.
