Acting CEO resigns, CSA won't accept

JOHANNESBURG - Acting CEO of Cricket South Africa (CSA) Jacques Faul was asked by the cricketing body on Thursday to reconsider his resignation.

Faul tendered his resignation only four months after replacing embattled chief Gerald Majola.

It is still unclear why he wants to quit but reports indicate that he believes certain board members had lost faith in his judgment.

Faul took over the job on an interim basis in March after Majola was suspended following a ministerial inquiry into bonuses paid to CSA staff.

"The board has then asked him to reconsider," said CSA's Altaff Kazi. "So, at this stage he will be reconsidering his decision and he will be presenting his decision to next week's board meeting."

Gerald Majola and other CSA staff members found themselves in hot water earlier this year, when a collective R4,7 million in bonuses was found to have been paid to them during the 2009 Indian Premier League (IPL).

Those payments were however not disclosed to CSA's remunerations committee and were picked up as irregularities by a subsequent audit report.
