Cricket crisis in SA averted with last-minute 11-hour meeting

The Members’ Council and the Interim Board of CSA met on Sunday to deal with all outstanding issues related to amending Cricket South Africa’s Memorandum of Incorporation (MOI).

Following the meeting which reportedly took all of 11 hours, the Members’ Council and the Board announced that a crisis has been averted and agreement has been reached on all those outstanding issues.

This agreement will now trigger an expedited process to adopt the MOI in terms of the Companies Act (s60) within 48 hours.

By reaching this agreement, cricket in South Africa has adopted a governance model which is best practice both in South Africa and internationally.

Acting President of the Members’ Council, Rihan Richards said, The Members’ Council is pleased to have been part of a thorough and fruitful consultative process today.

‘Today is a historic day for cricket in South Africa and we look forward to being part of a new governance structure for cricket and playing our part in ensuring sound administration of the game we hold so dear. I am grateful to my Members’ Council colleagues and the Interim Board for ensuring that we avert a proposed ministerial intervention which would have caused cricket in our country irreparable harm.’

Speaking on behalf of the Interim Board, chairperson Dr Stavros Nicolaou said, Today we reached an important milestone, and I am delighted that the Members’ Council and the Board reached agreement on a new governance structure.

‘We have now successfully managed to fulfill the mandate given to us by Minister of Sport, Arts and Culture, Mr. Nathi Mthethwa. We trust that this important agreement will give confidence to all cricket’s stakeholders specifically, players, staff, sponsors and all in the country who love the game of cricket. We owed it to our country to find a solution to cricket’s governance challenges.’

Once the s60 process has run its course CSA’s Members’ Council and Interim Board will host a joint press conference and the amended MOI will be made public. Until then CSA will make no further comment on the matter.

In the interests of transparency, the Members’ Council and the Interim Board will be sharing the amended MOI with all cricket’s stakeholders including SASCOC.

National News: Vernon Philander’s Brother Killed

Tyrone Philander, the brother of former SA Cricketer Vernon Philander, was shot and killed on Wednesday.  The family has asked for their privacy to be respected and for the public to allow them to mourn in peace. 

Tyrone, 32, was shot and killed in Ravensmead, Cape Town, on Wednesday afternoon.  Gasang Abarder, spokesperson for the family, said that the Philander’s were grateful for the messages of support.  “Our family is coming to terms with the brutal murder in my hometown of Ravensmead earlier today [Wednesday].  I would like to ask that the family’s privacy be respected during this difficult time,” Vernon said.

The circumstances surrounding the shooting remain unclear and will be the subject of a police investigation.  “The murder is now the subject of a police investigation and we respectfully ask that the media give the police the space to conduct a thorough investigation.  There are no details around the incident at the moment and speculation will make it very difficult for us as a family to mourn in peace.”

Vernon Philander, former SA Cricketer.

“Tyrone is forever in our hearts.  May his soul rest in peace.  The family will not be taking any calls for comment from the media.” Vernon stated.   Captain FC van Wyk, Western Cape police spokesperson, confirmed the shooting saying: “Circumstances surrounding this incident are under investigation.  Anyone with any information about this fatal shooting incident is kindly requested to contact the investigating officer Detective Sergeant Nyameko Mnqayi on 079 894 1278/021 933 9000 or Crime Stop on 08600 10111.”

Tyrone was shot on the corner of 7th Avenue and Webner street on Wednesday afternoon.  Zelda Trantaal of the Ravensmead CPF said: “He is Tyrone Philander; he is 32-years old.  I spoke to the mother and she confirmed that he is the brother of Vernon Philander. They don’t know what happened.  They were in the yard, busy with the washing and they heard shots.”
