CSA Members’ Council and Board members John Mogodi, Angelo Carolissen, Donovan May, and Tebogo Siko have also resigned from the board, the cricketing body confirmed on Sunday.
However, all four members will remain a part of the Members Council.
“As mentioned in Friday’s press statement, the CSA Board met this week & discussed various strategies that would best position CSA.
