The special WPCA Council meeting was prompted by issues of serious concern, shared publically by three leading national Cricket Sponsors, the South African Cricketers’ Association and a growing number of Provinces, including Gauteng Cricket Board and Kwa-Zulu Natal Cricket Union.
Western Province notes that other provinces have also been conducting grassroots engagements with their member clubs to discuss the current crisis in Cricket South Africa.
The WPCA President, Adv. Nic Kock, has been given a mandate to communicate the Western Province’s concerns on urgent matters including: - board vacancies and resignations; the state of sponsorship; the on-going deadlock between SACA and CSA; the continued suspension of senior executives on full pay and the financial outlook for Cricket given current / projected future losses.
The undoubted reputational damage suffered by Cricket South Africa as a result of the current turmoil requires the situation to be addressed immediately.
Issued on behalf of the WPCA Council
Adv. Nicolas Kock
President: Western Province Cricket Association
