CricketSABusinessLive reports that the SA Cricketers’ Association (Saca) is incensed with Cricket SA (CSA)‚ with Saca CEO Andrew Breetzke maintaining that the continued existence of the embattled organisation’s crippled board was doing the game in SA more harm than good.  

With England set to tour SA in November pending governmental approval‚ Breetzke said Cricket SA’s board issues could and would put the players’ livelihoods in jeopardy.  Reacting to the sports ministry’s planned intervention at CSA, Breetzke said:  “Cricket is in an existential crisis and the intervention of government will result in the ICC (International Cricket Council) reviewing Cricket SA’s position as an ICC member and will furthermore jeopardise the England tour scheduled for November.  Players will suffer‚ development will suffer and the future of the game will be prejudiced.”  He continued to say that “the current board has no credibility to resolve the crises and it is clear the impasse between government and Cricket SA will not be resolved until such time as the board stands down.  He implored the CSA board to stand down “in the best interests of cricket.”  CSA has been given until 27 October by sports minister Nathi Mthethwa to get its house in order.
