Cricket South Africa (CSA) has published the report compiled by the Social Justice and Nation Building Ombudsman, Advocate Dumisa Ntsebeza, following the hearings that took place this year.
The hearings focused on the causes, nature and extent of racial discrimination and lack of transformation in all cricket structures since unification 30 years ago.
It found that the appointments of Graeme Smith as director of cricket and Mark Boucher as national coach were flawed from a procedural perspective.
The report recommends improved internal and confidential grievance procedures and for mediation procedures to be put in place as a means of giving aggrieved players the platform to air their frustrations.
The ombudsman also found that race played no part in the match-fixing investigation.
Cricket South Africa also confirmed that although the Report is titled an “interim Report”, the Ombudsman has now discharged his mandate and no further report is expected.
CSA Chairman Lawson Naidoo says the cricket body is looking forward to engaging the report and its recommendations.
