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.
