JOHANNESBURG - Cricket South Africa (CSA) have ended their long search for a new chief executive officer by appointing Haroon Lorgat.

Lorgat was CEO of the International Cricket Council between 2008 and 2012 and takes over from Ghanaian Naasei Appiah, CSA's chief financial officer, who had been in the position on a caretaker basis since March.

"Mr. Lorgat's appointment follows a thorough and rigorous process to fill this important position," CSA President Chris Nenzani said in a statement. "The quality of the candidates was exceptional."
