‘Cricket South Africa now in good hands’

Johannesburg: Cricket South Africa is now in good hands, according to the sole objector of the findings of the Khan Commission.

Northerns Cricket Union president Vincent Sinovich was a lone voice in the wilderness when he voted against the report of the Khan Commission, an internal investigation, headed by then CSA vice president AK Khan.

“I think we’ve got a very good acting president in Willie Basson. He was the president of Northerns for nine years and Jacques Faul, the acting CEO, is a very capable man and I think, he will do a very good job. We``ve got two very good guys coming in there,” Sport24 quoted Sinovich, as saying.

Basson and Faul were interim appointments to replace AK Khan, who resigned as CSA``s acting president last week, and chief executive Gerald Majola, who was suspended on Saturday pending a disciplinary inquiry.

CSA’s board voted on Saturday to rescind the decisions made pertaining to the findings of the Khan Committee in November 2010, which failed to take action against Majola for breaching the Companies`` Act.

"Dr Nyoka asked, at the time, whether anyone else felt the same way as I did, but no one said anything. The findings were read to us at a meeting and any businessman would not get 10 pages read to him and just accept it. You would like to go home and digest it, which is exactly what I did,” Sinovich said.

The commission considered whether Majola had correctly disclosed bonuses paid to the chief executive and other staff after the hosting of the Indian Premier League and Champions Trophy during the 2009/2010 season, Sport24 reports.
