More woes for Cricket South Africa as Standard Bank pulls out as sponsor

Cricket South Africa (CSA) has been hit with another blow. Standard Bank has confirmed that they will end their sponsorship of the Proteas in 2020.

Standard Bank says it considers it appropriate and fair to give CSA adequate notice so that it may explore alternative sponsorships to replace the banking group.

Meanwhile, CSA has also confirmed to Eyewitness News it has suspended former acting chief financial officer Ziyanda Nkuta along with procurement manager Lundi Maja and administrator Dalene Nolan.

Vice says the board has been weak for a very long time and its independence has been ineffectual.

He adds that Cricket SA is on a good path when it comes to transformation but there are still racial issues.

The game is still caught up in whiteness to the largest degree, it is played in the better schools.
