The entire board of Cricket South Africa (CSA) has resigned. This comes just a day before CSA was due to meet with Sports Minister Nathi Mthethwa and as the crisis in South Africa cricket deepens.

The main stumbling block is the forensic audit report, of which CSA is still only prepared to release a summary.

CSA’s highest governing body is the Members’ Council, which last week requested the board to step down.

On Saturday, CSA denied anyone had done so, but late on Sunday, six board members, including acting president Beresford Williams, resigned. On Monday morning, the Members’ Council confirmed that all ten are now gone.

It’s not yet clear whether the CSA Executive will follow suit, but they have until close of business on Tuesday to outline a way forward with a task committee in charge.

This may be enough to prevent Mthethwa from stepping in and eliciting the ire of the ICC, which has the power to kick South Africa out of world cricket. However, the redacted forensic reports remains the issue at large.

Cricket SA has been plagued with financial and governance problems in recent years.

Mthethwa and the South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (SASCOC) are among those who have called on the board to step aside.
