JOHANNESBURG - Cricket South Africa confirmed on Wednesday it was postponing its AGM which was scheduled to take place this weekend.

This means the election of a new president will also be put on hold.

The postponement is to sort out problems around the CSA board structure.

It's also understood the organisation is waiting for written approval from the sports minister to implement recommendations made by the Nicholson Inquiry.

The AGM was initially supposed to be held in August, but was moved to this month to give CSA time to finalise disciplinary hearings against Gerald Majola who was fired last week.

CSA acting president Willie Basson said, "There are some problems related to the proposed board structure that we want to introduce. In order to make sure that nobody raises any objection during the AGM, the members have given us permission to postpone."
