Cricket South Africa (CSA) have announced that interim boss Pholetsi Moseki will take on the role on a full time basis. Moseki had been acting for 15 months and brought a semblance of stability to the association after Thabang Moroe was suspended in December 2019. Dr Jacques Faul came and went before Kugandrie Govender took over and was was fired for misconduct.

Moseki was confirmed after a lengthy process, which started with the position advertised in August last year. CSA engaged the services of a recruitment company, which proved unsuccessful in delivering suitable candidates, readvertised the post and used a second agency, which recommended former South African Airways CEO Vuyani Jarana for the job.

Moseki’s performance will be benchmarked against targets and key performance indicators that will be derived from the operationalisation of the new CSA strategy. In February, CSA produced an ambitious, five-year strategic plan that the board said will take cricket and the organisation out of its current malaise and regain the trust of the public at large, the stakeholders and the players. Moseki’s first major test as permanent CEO will come in the Mark Boucher and Graeme Smith and the implementing the recommendations from the SJN hearings.
