Former Western Province Cricket Association president Beresford Williams has been appointed acting president of Cricket South Africa.

Williams became vice-president of CSA last year. This week’s appointment follows the resignation of CSA president Chris Nenzani.

“The board of Cricket South Africa notes that following the resignation of the president of the board of Cricket South Africa, the members’ council has announced that Mr Williams will fill the role of acting president until the annual general meeting, set for 5 September 2020,” read Tuesday’s statement from CSA.

CSA acting CEO leaves, too

CSA, meanwhile, have also confirmed the resignation of acting chief executive officer Jacques Faul.

Faul’s tenure effectively ended four weeks early. He was appointed in December 2019, in the absence of the suspended Thabang Moroe.

“Further, the board advises that acting chief executive Dr Faul has decided to end his secondment with immediate effect. The secondment was due to terminate on 15 September 2020,” added CSA.

“Dr Faul has put in place a detail transitional plan that will ensure the organisation makes a seamless transition to a new acting CEO, that the board will advise on shortly. The board is forever grateful for the outstanding commitment and leadership that Dr Faul has made and continues to make to CSA and the game of cricket.”
