Cricket South Africa appoint Beresford Williams as acting president

Cricket South Africa (CSA) has appointed Beresford Williams as acting president till the next Annual General Meeting slated for September 5.

The appointment has been made following the resignation of Chris Nenzani who stepped down as the president of the Members’ Council and as Chairman of the Board of Directors of CSA on Monday, with his resignation coming into effect from August 15.

“Dr. Faul has put in place a detail transitional plan that will ensure the organization makes a seamless transition to a new Acting CEO, that the Board will advise on shortly,” the CSA statement read on Tuesday.

“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,” it added.
