JOHANNESBURG - Cricket South Africa (CSA) on Friday said there will be no implications after resignations from its steering committees.

CSA's Michael Owen Smith said the committees' jobs were now complete.

"They have been thanked for their services and these committees have now come to an end. We now look forward to our AGM next Saturday."

Shawn Christiansen and Rushdie Magiet both resigned over the furor surrounding the non-appointment of Norman Arendse to the board of directors.

Arendse lodged a dispute about his appointment with sports umbrella body Sascoc.

He was tipped to become the new chairperson of the CSA board, but a last minute change to CSA's articles of association prevented him from being elected.

South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (Sascoc) met with CSA on Friday to discuss its concerns around the process of appointing directors.

Sascoc's Tubby Reddy said, "As custodians of sport in this country, we have no option but to address the issue."
