Cricket South Africa's officials resign

Johannesburg, Mar 15: Cricket South Africa's CEO Gerald Majola's fate is likely to be decided in the next three days while the acting president of CSA (Cricket South Africa) AK Khan and the chairman of the audit committee John Blair both have resigned from their posts on Wednesday ahead of the board meeting that is scheduled later this week.

Khan's resignation comes in the wake of the controversial period which was a tough period for administration that included the bonus controversy related to the second edition of Indian Premier League (IPL) that has made life difficult for him as they are unable to find sponsors for both international and domestic cricket in South Africa.

"I would like to apologise to our fans and the country for the fact that this matter remains unresolved at the current time and I wish the future leadership of CSA all of the best," Khan said. "But the fact has to be faced that we have not been able to resolve the problem that has bedevilled our cricket for the past two years and I believe the time has come for fresh leadership to take the game forward."

Khan, had worked as CSA president from February to May 2011 and from Oct 2011 to Mar 2012, while both the terms ended shortly. While, Blair said 'time had come for him to move on in the best interests of cricket'.

A committee investigation revealed that Majola had violated the Company's Act and has recommended the case to National Prosecuting Authority, while Majola has maintained his innocence and told New Age newspaper that 'he declared the bonuses to the board but did not write them down'.
